Eating Healthy in College: Grocery Shopping!

Hey guys! I’ve been gone for a little bit because I’ve been swamped with school, work and internship. And I know when busy it’s kind of hard to stick to those healthy eating habits. Here are some things I do to maintain this healthy lifestyle.

TIP ONE: Write out your grocery list. So you won’t be tempted to get unhealthy treats you don’t need.

  • Water
  • Seasoning
  • Oatmeal
  • chicken
  • salmon
  • spinach
  • 10 bags of vegetables***
  • blueberries
  • strawberry
  • nuts
  • popcorn
  • oatmeal
  • mozzarella cheese
  • whole grain bagels
  • sweet potatoes
  • cucumbers
  • almond milk
  • avocado
  • tuna
  • whole grain tortillas
  • eggs
  • stevia
  • peanut butter
  • raisins and or crasians
  • olive oil
  • spinach or wheat tortillas
  • mustard, onions
  • frozen corn
  • canned black beans
  • chick peas

TIP TWO: Use the app Fooducate when shopping. Fooducate allows you to scan any grocery with a barcode and it will give you a grade from A to D on the product. I personally only buy things that receive an A or B. The grading is based on the nutritional value. This app will also tell you the ingredients in the product. And the app provides information you should watch out for such as sugar, sodium, and transfats.

TIP THREE: Stock up on frozen vegetables. Not only are frozen vegetables fresher, they are not as processed as the ones in cans. I stock up on Valley Fresh Steamers Roasted Red Potatoes and Green Beans with Rosemary Butter Sauce or  Stem Freshers Lightly Season Asian Medley. These are quick and easy meals, I eat the whole bag

TIP FOUR: Always have a cold bottle water with you! Drinking a cup of cold water burns 30 calories. Plus it flushes out all the icky stuff in your body… Ever since I’ve been drinking water through out the day, I have been bikini ready! :)
