After the buzz and luxury of Christmas and New Year at home, not all of us are looking forward to going back to our lives at Uni. What’s more – January can be a particularly grim month for everyone with continuous bad weather, flu circling around campus and darker nights closing in. So here are some ideas in the kitchen that will help you fight off the January blues and start feeling good!
Christmas – it’s the most wonderful time of the year. It also means the end of a long, tiring but exciting term (especially for you fresher’s) at University. So seeing as most of us won’t be spending much of Christmas with our new found friends at Uni, why not make a day of it before everyone heads for the old homestead...
Ready meals – very much the food baby of Western Civilisation. What’s more, us Brits are the worst in Europe for stocking up on them. £1.9bn was spent on ready meals in last year alone, double that of France and even triple that of Spain. More than 1/3 of adults in the UK admit to eating ready meals more than once a week – I wonder how many of those guilty are students...
Eggs – what’s not to love! They are the key to a healthy lifestyle, and as they are cheap as chips they are ideal for our health, budget and meals. They are a great source of protein and so satisfy our appetites, not to mention they provide a range of essential vitamins and minerals!
Don’t get me wrong – I like a drink. In fact, I’m feeling slightly ropey while writing this after a late night. However, after a lecture last week regarding the big subject, the reality of alcohol and its effects have started to hit home...
There’s something fishy going on around here…
Unfortunately, a typical student diet consists of highly processed, nutrient-poor fatty foods. However, there is one food that does not feature in our diets as often as it should do – fish.
Here we are again... and it’s the first week of November already! Where has all the time gone? Fresher’s Week seems like many moons ago now (or, it’s all just a bit of a blur to you!). Hopefully you have all settled in, had fun, made friends, attended lectures and are coping with your new student lifestyle. Whether you have made a real stab in the kitchen just yet now that might be another story...
You might think you’re too old for Halloween now, being a mature and individual university student... but think again!
Now, we students aren’t the only guilty ones. People of all ages seem to have this stereotypical idea that buying and cooking fresh food is more expensive than loading up on fast food and ready meals – when actually, they couldn’t be more wrong!
Can you feel the cold snap yet? Yep, autumn is coming – and whether you love the cold or not, fear not! Coming into season are some nutritious vegetables and fruits that will warm you up and keep you going through those early morning starts and keep the winter flu at bay. What’s more, supermarkets fresh weekly offers have started to sell these vegetables and fruits at prices that we can all afford!
As the cost of living creeps up year on year and the unrelenting squeeze on our money shows no sign of rebating, students in particular will often struggle. One alternative is to consider going self-employed.
Get ready for the craziest, messiest and biggest week of your life…
Here we go, round two of the student summer detox, this week – lunches. If you tried out a few of the healthy breakfast recipes featured in our most recent blog - still think healthy eating is boring? Didn’t think so, and lunchtimes are about to get healthier and tastier so keep reading!
Most people will be making their first trip to uni soon, or travelling back for another long year of hard work and exams, ready for the main event of the year, Fresher’s Week!
Jamie Oliver – fierce food campaigner and all around stand up guy – has hit out at sporting role models David Beckham and Gary Lineker for promoting junk foods. You may have seen the likes of Beckham and Gary on your TV screens in ads for Pepsi and Walkers crisps – but the celebrity chef has joined health professionals and teachers who say the use of famous sports personalities in junk food advertising is sending the wrong message to youngsters…
