Ongoing Training and Development

Living on a student budget and schedule can make it difficult to always eat healthy… here are some tips and tricks for you that are easy to implement!

How much do you think you already know? Take these quizzes and find out: 

Portion Sizes

Healthy Choices http://health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/food-nutrition/healthy-eating/healthy-diet-quiz.htm


Ongoing Training and Development Eating at the caf… 

When going for salads avoid creamy salad dressings!

Choose bread and wraps made from whole grains. Avoid white bread!

Ask for smaller portion sizes. Less on your plate the less likely you will overeat

Go for dark greens and salads. The darker the more nutritious they are!

Try and stick to drinking water

Cooking in your suites… 

Choose lean meats when you are out shopping!

Don’t go shopping when you are hungry. You are more likely to make impulsive and unhealthy choices

Avoid the frozen food section (fresh also tastes best!)

Grill, bake or steam your food versus frying. Avoid the use of oil and butter

Enjoy Thanksgiving from your Ongoing Training and Development Team!
