How much is your food shopping costing you every week? £20, maybe £25? Now we are coming to the very last few weeks of our loan, like many others, your bank account may well be running out of steam - so it’s more important than ever to avoid the infamous overdraft that’s creeping ever closer. By starting to shop and eat smart, you’ll find you can stretch those last few pounds that bit extra.
Do you often find yourself short on time around mealtimes, or just simply want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible? It’s most likely the latter for the majority of students...
For most students, being healthy is easier said than done. But with one University study finding 94% of students wishing they were healthier, what’s stopping them? Well, the reality is, most don’t know where to start, so really it’s no surprise that most of us live off ready meals and takeaways.
Making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday was traditionally a way to use up any stocks of milk, butter and milk which were forbidden during Lent… but why do so many of us restrict ourselves to them once a year? They are delicious, cheap, incredibly versatile and easy – and so perfect for students.
Here is one drug addiction that is very much under the radar, but so common in the average student diet. Sugar. Very few of us really understand the damage that excessive consumption can do to our bodies, and the part they play in weight gain. Now we are at University we have the freedom to eat what we want, we could easily fall victim to one of the most highly addictive drugs.
Can you hear that? The cough, splutter and sneeze of the person sitting next, behind and opposite you in your library, lecture or living room… Yep, that’s right! It’s the flu season, yippee…
Breakfast – the most important meal of the day and as the saying goes… ‘Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dinner like a Pauper’.
Hallelujah! We made it through the dreaded month that is January, usually full of rainy, cold weather and exams, revision and lots of stress. So now that it’s over, you (well, some of you) might feel all that hard work should be rewarded.
How often do you go meat free? Once, twice a week? Or maybe hardly ever? Going veggie at least once a week is not only beneficial to your health but also easy on the wallet for us students.
Have you made it your New Year’s resolution to get fit? How’s that going so far, bearing in mind only 8% of resolutions are successful … Not a surprise really, especially for students who are usually up to their eyes in revision, exams and deadlines throughout January. But so what if your resolution didn’t go to plan – there’s no time like the present to restart your get fit goals!
Calling all Freshers – Get yourself organised in your last few weeks before you leave for University so you can really enjoy your freshers week without worrying about what you’ve left back home! I’ve dug out my list from this time last year, and picked out the bits and bobs that really came in handy over my fresher year.
Whether you’ve been living in halls or shared housing the past eight months or so or finishing your first, second or even final year at university – all students are sure to experience similar pleasures but also perils of the typical ‘student lifestyle’. Now many of us are back in the safety of our parental homes and away from the buzz of uni life, we may come to realise how much our habits and behaviour have changed since we left. Either that or your parents point them out with slight concern…

At Uni, sometimes, you’ll either be running out of that student loan or wanting to chill out and forget the mad party nights once in a while but still want a night to spend with your friends. Movie nights are the one of the best ways to still be sociable but still have time to spend time with your friends at the same time...
February and March are the perfect months in the year to sow seeds and grow your own veggies! It’s a common belief that growing your own vegetables and plants is a hard and labourious process requiring vast amounts of time and space; however this couldn’t be more wrong, the perfect carrots could be grown on your very own windowsill!
