Better Back to School Eating

Better back to school eating.  No matter the age or school the same tips apply.


Avoid the sugary cereals, fat free or 2% milks, pastries and pancakes.

The better options are eggs, whole grain toast, oatmeal, overnight oats, or even make your own protein pancakes or waffles.  See EatbyColor.comfor recipes.  Hard boiled eggs and fruit are portable and available in most dorms and can easily be made at home.


Avoid the fried foods, highly processed carbs and high fat foods.   Hit the salad bar and load up on a variety of fresh vegetables first.  Favor the lean protein like grilled or baked chicken, fish, beef or turkey.  Pair with vegetables as a side and some complex carb.   There is nothing wrong with sandwiches just pick a higher fiber bread or go with a wrap like flat outs or fold its.
