Healthy College Food

Updated on August 25, 2012

Eating Healthy College Food

Ok, so you got the acceptance letter, you called your new roommate and now what? It's time to look into the food situation. Sure your parents paid for the room and board. That means that you won't starve but do you really want to eat that junk?

Eating Vegetarian can be a healthy alternative to the greasy burgers and meat layered pizza that seem to be a staple in college. The most important thing to keep in mind if you plan to start eating vegetarian is that you keep in mind what you can eat, not what you can't eat.

It is important to include food from each of the groups because:

1. Grains give your brain and muscles energy.

They are a good source of B-vitamins and iron. Try to include grains like rice, potatoes, pasta, and whole grain bread at every meal.

2. Fruits and Vegetables help eyes, hair, and blood and boost your immune system. They are a good source of vitamins A and C, minerals, and fiber. Try having fruits and vegetables like apples, broccoli, pear, carrots, squash, salad 5-7 times per day (2 1/2 cups of veggies and 2 cups of fruit).

3. Milk or Dairy Products help maintain strong bones and teeth. They are a good source of calcium and protein. Try to have a serving of low fat dairy foods like 8 oz milk, 1 oz cheese, 1 cup yogurt, cottage cheese, pudding, or frozen yogurt 3 times a day.

4. Foods high in Protein help build muscles, fight infection, and heal wounds. Try having beans, peanut butter, fish, tofu, or eggs at 2 meals daily.

5. Fats and Oils keep hair and skin soft and give a feeling of fullness. They are a good source of dietary fat. Try to include a little fat like salad dressing, olive oil, guacamole, nuts, or seeds at each meal.

Please note: Many young women don't get enough of all of the vitamins they need every day, even if they eat a balanced diet. Talk with your doctor about taking a multivitamin.

An antioxidant is a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules. Antioxidants can help prevent heart disease and certain cancers, as well as keep your eyes, mind, and immune system sharp.

This refrigerator not only holds enough healthy college food to get you through the week but it also doubles as a night stand. This is an important feature since dorm rooms are notoriously small. This refrigerator is just the right height for a lamp and a few books. This is the perfect refrigerator for a college student.

Spaghetti Squash is very easy to cook in a toaster oven. Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds. Add a little water to the hole left by the seeds. Cover it with aluminum foil and bake for about an hour. This should give you time to study for your next class.

The squash is done when you can prick it easily with a fork. Use the fork to scrape the spaghetti strands onto your dish. Pour on some tomato sauce and sprinkle on a little Parmesan cheese and you would never know it's not really pasta.

Yum! Yum!

2/20/08 Trying to do my part, Localvore - 'think globally, act locally'

Locavore by Preshrunk

on Photobucket

Localvore is a movement that challenges its participants to eat all local foods (local meaning grown or produced within a 100 mile radius.) Writer and professor Bill Mckibben ate local for 7 months while living in Vermont and really brought the message of this national movement home.

Now the question is, why localvore? Well, in a world with quickly diminishing resources it is becoming vital that we try to conserve by eating food that is grown or produced close to home, therefore decreasing cost, time and energy in the transit process from the grower/producer to the stores. Also, buying local keeps dollars spent local and enhances profits for our neighbors who are producing the food. And in this the era of mass production of food by large corporations and factory farms from faraway places, there are many who just feel better knowing where there food has come from.

College Dorm Cookbooks for Eating Healthy

Watch What You Eat

If I haven't convinced you to eat healthy food yet, check out these movies. The amount of fat and calories in a fast food diet is atrocious. The even scarier fact is that often that is what is being served in college cafeterias. Invite some friends over to your dorm, put out a bowl of carrots and watch what you are missing by eating a healthy diet:

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal
Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal

Don Anderson (Greg Kinnear) is the Mickey's food restaurant chain's Marketing Director. He is the inventor of the "Big One", the best selling hamburger of Mickey's. An independent research reports the presence of cow's feces in the Big One. So Don is sent to Cody, Colorado, to verify if the slaughterhouse, main supplier of Mickey's, is as efficient as it appears and the production process is regular. During his investigations he discovers the truth behind a simple hamburger; the reality is not like we think it is. Don discovers that the mass production system involves the exploitation of Mexican illegal immigrants. The film also shows how restaurant employees are treated and the expectations of them.

 
Super Size Me [DVD]
Super Size Me [DVD]

Super Size Me is an Academy Award-nominated 2004 documentary film written, produced, directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker. Spurlock's film follows a 30-day time period (February 2003) during which he subsists entirely on food and items purchased exclusively from McDonald's, and the film documents this lifestyle's drastic effects on Spurlock's physical and psychological well-being and explores the fast food industry's corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit. During the filming, Spurlock dined at McDonald's restaurants three times per day, sampling every item on the chain's menu at least once. Also, if asked to Super Size his meal, he must. He consumed an average of 5,000 kcal (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment.

 

Vitamin Supplements

Many young women don't get enough of all of the vitamins they need every day, even if they eat a balanced diet. Talk with your doctor about taking a multivitamin.

You probably won't have much space in your dorm so I suggest that you check out the 3 in 1 Breakfast Maker. It is a very versatile kitchen appliance.

      While I'm only in the dorms for my first year in college, finding healthy foods has been struggle. I've found that keeping spinach or salad bags in my mini fridge and some good dressing has been wonderful for a healthy salad. I'll also throw in sliced fruit from the dining hall or some nuts that I bought. I also keep bread, 100% peanut butter, hummus, yogurt and oatmeal on hand. By keeping a food journal too I've been able to track what all is in the food I eat. It's amazing how fatty and heavily salted food on campus can be.

    • profile image

      jimmyworldstar 5 years ago

      It's not impossible to eat healthy in college. The food in the cafeteria tends to not be the most nutritious but if you eat a healthy salad (without loads of cheese, meat, or dressing full of fat), something simple like pasta with sauce, and fruits, you'll be well off. It's important to find time to cook a good meal and doing it in bulk will really help save time too.

      My son has lost 100 Lbs in 18 months, and every morning he has a Joan's Sweet Treat for breakfast. They come in two flavors Original and Oatmeal Raisin. They have 175 calories and 183 calories respectively. They are made with 100% natural ingredients, but the most important ingredient is the WHOLE wheat flour. This is not your regular store bought ENRICHED wheat flour. This is the grain ground into flour with ALL the nutrients that nature intended. These granola bars are VERY FILLING and will stick to your ribs. My son (age 20) would eat a bar on the way to his 8:00 class and he is satisfied until lunch. ALL for 175 calories.

      Healthy eating in college is a touch thing to do. I did it, but I was given good information from very reputable resources. This Lens is great because it gives people solid knowledge as to what they should do and what they should avoid. I made sure everyday that I'd have a good detox juice and try to avoid certain things in my diet. Food is now full of so many toxins and chemicals, but if we ensure we eat raw, quality food with anti-oxidants, we can counter-balance a lot of the side effects of our environment.

      I also made sure I avoided microwaves. Irridation can have altering, and in fact, harmful effects to your food. In other words, the food you eat from a microwave can have harmful effects to you. "You are what you eat" in the sense that if you're eating food that is altered by a microwave, you are eating something that should not be in your body. Anyway, there's much more, but I'll save it for another day. ;)

      Thanks for the great Lens

      It is incredible how what you eat effects everything from in to out. Eat well and it will be reflected not just how you feel (which is very important, of course) but also how you look and it becomes readily apparent in your skin. That is one of the first indicators.

      This is good information for college students. I am vegetarian, though it's been a long time since college. Spaghetti in a toaster oven -- I wouldn't have thought that.

      there are so many temptations in college when it comes to food! i guess that's why people in highschool don't recognize you anymore when you have your reunion after college or something. it's because you probably gained a few flabs in your stomach. thanks for sharing this article. it really helps college students to stay healthy.

      Very nice lens, 5***** Great ideas for eating sensibly. It's amazing how much junk we can consume, even when we think we are eating healthily.

      I don't remember ever eating healthy, per se, during my college experience. Hell, I don't remember doing anything healthy during those years unless you count exercise of the more provocative nature.lol. Wonderful lens though. I do love my veggies as well.

      It took me two years to start eating healthy at school; thanks to production at my school job, I learned from my co-workers how to eat healthy and deliciously! Whole in the Wall has organic, healthy food!
