i know what you mean. i never know what to take because whatever i take will sit in the classroom all day. a good idea i have found is to put a small bottle with water in the freezer and pack my sandwitches around it. that way they stay cold and it doesnt cost anything. sam xxx

Go to the "healthy lifestyle" tab. Click "healthy lifestyle home". When the page loads you should see "lifestyle centers" on the right side of the page. Click on that, and then click the lifestyle for college students. There are a bunch of articles and food ideas for a hectic schedule =)

Try sandwiches (I don't mind eating mine at room temperature) for lunch, rice cakes (I know, sounds tasteless but Quaker's has such a wide variety of flavors... they are really good and low cal), nuts, bananas, grapes, oranges, cheerios (great snack that you can toss into a ziplock bag, granola, rice, baby carrots, other veggies, etc. If you invest in a small cooler- prob about $20- $30 at target, you can put a lot of your food in it and leave it in the car. Hope that helps!

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

My department has seem to find it amusing to create such an awful schedule for my this semester (for the most part education majors have all semesters pre-planned). Well on Mondays and Wednesdays I am here for a class from 9am-11:50am and another class from 5pm-7:50pm. And there was nothing I could do about the gap because the class is only offered in one slot for elem ed majors.

My problem is, I can't really afford to drive back home between classes (its a 45 mile trip each way, I live in the boonies) and I don't have the extra money to be buying food constantly.

I need suggestions on what to do since I am here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is totally killing my diet. Right now I can leave cold foods in my car since its winter and like -20 out, but I don't have access to a fridge once spring comes.

Any suggestions are welcome :]
