A bagel can be a nice treat once in a while but bagels are actually comprised of roughly 5-6 pieces of bread. If you do have a bagel, put a small amount of margarine or cream cheese on it because the calories can quickly add up.
As for the cafeteria food at your school, I suggest that you go there and check out what kinds of foods they have. A sandwich and a salad can be a good lunch (but remember to also eat fiber which will fill you up).
You can still enjoy your chocolate but be sure to eat it on special occasions. Going to the store and buying chocolate several times a day is scary to me because it sounds like you binge eat with chocolate.
I am not an expert as this whatsoever and I too struggle with making healthy food choices but just remember that we're all in this together.
I hope this helps!

What I like to do is pack some vegies and cheese, raisins or a granola bar as a snack and buy something for lunch. For lunch I try to stick to more healthy options such as a sandwich with veggies, a salad with limited dressing, or soup if it isn't cream based.

I'm a busy college girl on a budget and I'm looking for healthy eating suggestions where lunchtime and snacks are concerned.
I sometimes treat myself to a bagel but I'm aware it's not the healthiest considering the spread and cheese it contains. I also get a smoothie on occasion, however, it comprises of nothing more than frozen berries and frozen yogurt which isn't great either.
The cafeteria food tastes great but is surely high in fat so I avoid it at all costs.
Considering my love of chocolate I usually end up going to one of the shops and grabbing a bar of one sort of another. In fact, this may happen more than once a day.
Is anyone here in my position? How can I make wise diet-choices that won't break my budget? Any advice welcome-thank you! :)
