Eating well as a university student is difficult enough, with balancing schoolwork, extracurricular activities and everything that comes with being a student. Eating healthy sounds almost mythical! In fact, you might spend more of your time trying to recover from draining classes while trying to stay healthy.
However, in spite of all these, we have picked through the options and selected a relatively wide spectrum of meals. They may not necessarily be the healthiest options but they are bound to improve your eating habits and feeding consciousness.
Although the most important, this is also the most tasking of all meals to keep to, and it is a fact that most university students skip their breakfast.
Here’s a short list of preferences that meet the standards for healthy eating;
- Bread, butter and tea or milk
- Sandwich (Bread, Butter, Sardines and/or boiled egg)
Your Lunch doesn’t have to be boring, check out a sample meal list below:
- Noodles, mixed vegetables and/or beef.
- Fried plantain and stew
- Pasta and sauce
- Rice and stew
- Fried potato and sauce
Dinner meal time should be hours before bed, and what you eat should be light but sufficient, like these
- Chicken and chips
- Boiled potato and vegetable sauce
- Yam pottage
- Green Salad with fish or chicken
- Pounded yam
A well balanced meal timetable that is delicious and nutritious comprising your favorite African dishes would incorporate healthy eating into your lifestyle without you actively trying.
