Summer is creeping up on us and when it is warm, lots of people (me included!) try and eat a bit healthier. I tried to kick start this healthy eating with giving up crisps for lent (from March 5th-April 20th and anyone who knows me would know that crisps are my weakness!).
So you just started university, you have some money in your pocket – savings, parents being generous, maintanance grant…but how do you make it last? Here are my tips!
Peoples’ opinion of student eating is takeaways, nights out and cold pizza from the night before – but it doesn’t have to be that way! You can make your own food from scratch that is healthy and much cheaper than the £20 you’d spend on a big takeaway!
When you’re at uni your food changes, you start eating a lot of pasta… and more pasta. However exotic the sweet and sourchicken ready meal sounds, it is still a ready meal.
We all know the myth according to which students live on pizza, chicken nuggets and beans on toast. Oh, and let’s not forget, coffee. Like all myths, there is a seed of truth in there. Yes, we are famous for not eating “properly”, but we can’t afford to gear our fridge like Nigella and cooking a roast dinner for one… Doesn’t really make sense, does it?
