As you return back to campus, or if you are just beginning your journey through the University, you will once again face the question, “What’s for Lunch?” We are regularly reminded that our country is facing an obesity epidemic (see http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/ for more information), though we all struggle with making the “right choice.” Everyone’s nutritional needs are different, impacted by their exercise habits, food allergies/intolerances, age, and sex. Our choices are further impacted by our likes and dislikes, cultural history, and even our knowledge of cooking!
There are many things you can do to start the year off right. For example, keep healthy snacks on hand, eat breakfast to help prevent a crash mid-morning, and try new fruits and vegetables as you come across them to open up new exciting food options. A number of online resources are available to help you learn more about what it means to eat healthy.
Take the time this year to make a commitment to healthy eating!
