Research published in the Public Health Nutrition journal, offers the strongest evidence yet of a link between healthy eating and positive performance from students. Kaja discusses the types of food that fuels her day and how to stay healthy on a student budget!
One of the most important things I've learnt when it comes to eating healthy is to be prepared. I do a lot of meal planning and meal prep. At the beginning of the week I plan all my meals and purchase whatever I need for them. I prepare my breakfasts, snacks and lunches every evening so I don't have to rush making meals in the morning before I go to school. I also find it helpful to have bars and fruit available to grab whenever I'm in a hurry. I rarely go anywhere without a bar in my purse!
Healthy eating is renowned to be quite expensive. However, when you exclude meat, fish, dairy and other processed foods you'll have quite a lot of money left for veggies, fruit and other plant-based foods. So for me it's never been a problem to eat healthy on a budget. I do pay attention to discounts though and try to eat as seasonal as possible. Doing meal prep and bringing your own lunch and snacks is also a good way to avoid ending up purchasing lunch and other snacks at school/work etc.
I usually have matcha nice cream topped with oats, nuts, seeds and berries for breakfast. A cold-pressed juice and a bar as a mid-morning snack. Ezekiel toasts with coconut oil, spinach and avocado for lunch. A fruit as an afternoon snack. A mix of quinoa, sun-dried tomatoes, kale and avocado for dinner. And a raw chocolate for dessert - I always have dessert!
My spelt & banana pancakes! They're so easy to make and still tastes good after being brought in a box.
