Take time to build friendships. Try to arrive to class a few minutes before it begins if you want to get to know people. This allows you to help guide those who do not know whether or not they have arrived at the right place. This is also an easy way to break the ice and develop friendships.
Participate in at least one internship during college. You can gain valuable real-world experience by interning and get a better feel for what your post-college career might be like. A good internship may even lead to a job opportunity further down the road. Ask about internships at your school.
Turn the broiler on. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sucanat or brown sugar on top of each dish of oatmeal. Watch closely for a few minutes until the sugar bubbles and darkens. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
Traditional Thanksgiving food items weren’t all created equal – nutritionally that is. Roasted white turkey meat (without skin) is a great source of lean protein. Vegetable dishes (without added fats) are also very healthy. On the other hand, buttery mashed potatoes, white bread rolls, cream based dishes, and heavy gravy are all packed with fat and calories. Fill your stomach with the healthy items first – white turkey meat and plenty of vegetables. Then simply ‘sample’ the less healthy items in small portions. This is so easy to do, save you lots of extra calories, and you don’t have to feel like you are denying yourself, either.
Well, maybe. That is if you like your grain plain. The grain we’re talking about is oatmeal. Yes, that bland tasting, cholesterol lowering, heart disease reducing, protein rich grain most commonly found in a round cardboard canister. Whether your oats are rolled, crushed or ground like Irish oatmeal, a little imagination and creativity goes a long way in designing your own favorite and healthy breakfast.
Really pay attention to the beverages you’re drinking. Many people think about their food intake and their exercise plans, but they don’t realize how important it is to pay close attention to all beverages. You drink consistently throughout your day, and these beverages need to be healthy. Plus, you need to be giving your body plenty of water in order for it to stay hydrated. Drink all-natural fruit juices as well.
This is a nice alternative to the traditional breakfast of a bowl of cereal for more than one reason. I find myself that I always tend to let my milk spoil when i buy it. I just don’t use it fast enough to beat the expiration date. I also tend never to have time to wash dishes, and hate to continuously waste paper bowls and plastic spoons. Finally, my cereal finds a way of getting stale before I can finish a box. So, the milk and cereal bars are a way to avoid all of these problems!
