Being healthy in college is difficult, but it is not impossible. There are a lot of things you can do to stay on top of your health in college. This post is about eating healthy, which of course, will keep you happy!

Perhaps the most important aspect of health is eating habits. If you follow all the other tips that I give in the next few weeks, but you do not eat healthy, whole foods, then your quest to be physically healthy may not go to well. Here are 5 tips to help you get going on eating healthy while in college:


1) Drink a lot of water...

Pretty simple, but this is the most important part of health! Take water everywhere you go—to class, to study, and to work. Drink a glass when you get up in the morning and before you go to bed at night.


2)   Eat breakfast…

I sometimes do not follow this advice, but everyone says to do it, and I feel a million times better when I do, so definitely try to eat breakfast as often as possible. It gives you energy so you can concentrate in your classes, and it is a relaxing and fun way to start your day.


 3)   Don’t keep bad snacks in your room!

Just do everything you can to stay away from bad snacks! Keep healthy snacks instead—nuts, fruit and granola bars are some suggestions. (I found a list here of amazing healthy snack ideas!).


4)   Maintain a variety in your diet…

That way you get a variety of nutrients in your diet! 


5)   Eat fruits and veggies at every meal…

 Sometimes this is impossible, but this will make a big difference in your overall health! Most of us do not get enough fruits and veggies in our diet, and making sure to get a serving of each at every meal is a good way to make sure you get the recommended daily dose.
