Hi Beauties! Let’s talk about the dreaded Freshman 15…
Here is a grocery list for college students [ that have no refrigerator access ] who feel trapped into eating cafeteria food, late-night pizza + ranch dressing, and/or mac n’ cheese at 3 am:
+ Pirate’s Booty [ best kind: the lunch pack bags for kids aka the Sponge Bob kind ]
+ Cuties Clementines
+ Cashews + dried organic Turkish apricots
+ Almond butter packets [ I like putting these on bananas/apples/pears ]
+ Apple chips
+ Smart Food popcorn clusters
+ Veggie or sweet potato chips [ I like this brand ]
+ Ezekiel cereal [ mix this with Rice Milk- which doesn’t have to be refrigerated ]
+ Wasabi peas
+ 1/2 of a Lara bar
+ Laughing Cow light cheese wedges
Just because you’re actively making an effort to eat healthy, doesn’t mean portion control shouldn’t still be demonstrated. Tips for portion control:
+ Never, ever eat out of bag/box- pour it in a small bowl [ think a miso soup-sized bowl ]
+ Buy small glass wear, bowls, plates, wine glasses, etc. There’s no reason to eat out of a swimming pool-sized bowl.
+ Portion examples: nuts = a handful, fruit = 2 tangerines, chips/popcorn/pretzels = miso soup-sized bowl
Stock up your dorm room or kitchen ASAP- there’s no reason to not have quick, low-cal snacks laying around for when you’re in a pinch!
Oh, and say buh-bye to soda- it’s a disgusting, horrible chemical & causes bloat.
