Break up with Unhealthy Eating Habits

Fall is here, and that means it’s back to the grind for all us busy collegiettes. While you’re trying to manage coursework, friends, and activities, it’s easy to forget about yourself! But you need some attention too, and one of the best ways to pamper yourself is to make sure you’re treating your body well.

Personally, my biggest downfall in self-maintenance is my addiction to junk food! Chips and cookies are the usual suspects, but there are tons of other traps to watch out for. My friends love going out for ice cream or to the hottest new bakery in town, but those calories add up fast! Even worse, all that sugar hypes you up, but it just can’t keep you energized all day.

A little bit of sweets is fine, of course, but if you really want to commit to breaking up with unhealthy habits it’s important to eat tons of fresh fruits and vegetables. Don’t forget those things that make veggies even tastier, like hummus to eat with your carrots and celery! Besides the fact that they taste great, they give you enough energy to do all the other things you need to get done.

The start of fall semester is a great time to commit to eating healthy, because you’re already setting a new schedule for yourself. Make time for a trip to the supermarket at least once a week so you can stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables. And don’t forget to talk to your friends about their favorite recipes for yummy healthy eating, too!
