Eating Healthy on the Road: Ironic or Attainable?

Fred Chang

Eating healthy can be a challenge for anyone, but it is especially difficult when it comes to traveling. Gas station mini marts are stocked with sugary snacks, restaurant chefs have a heavy hand when it comes to salt, and coffee shop pastries are oh so tempting at those caffeine pit stops. So is eating healthy even fathomable when it comes to the road? My family trip to Rutgers University in New Jersey turns this oxymoron into a thing of the past with some simple snacking solutions.

When I come home from a long day of fighting off Boston’s chilly winds, the first thing I want to do is make a relaxing cup of tea. Something about a hot, aromatic cup of tea helps me focus and collect myself throughout the day. But I believe that investing in loose leaf teas, in particular, will make your tea-drinking experiences that much better.

Let Your Eyes Enjoy Your Food Before Your Stomach

Growing up, I only appreciated food for its ability to satisfy my hunger. But now that I am far from home and responsible for putting together my own meals, I see food in a whole new light. Not only do I love to cook, but I have also fallen in love with the rainbow palette of colors in food from the deep purplish red of beets to the sunny yellow hue of a freshly sliced pineapple.

Navigating Your Way Through The College Kid's Daily Diet

The life of a typical student rarely revolves around what’s healthy: staying up into the early morning hours, waking up just in time to make it to your 8:00am class, pulling all-night cram sessions for that exam tomorrow, and partying Thursday evening through Sunday morning aren’t usually the recommended activities for a sound mind and body. Along with this lifestyle comes a laissez faire attitude towards food—an “I’ll take what I can get for the cheapest I can find it” outlook. Unfortunately, this stance is not terribly conducive to a nutritious diet, and consequently the average college student isn’t getting the nutrients he or she needs most.

Health Bytes: The Importance of Three Meals

When someone wants to lose weight, his or her first inclination is usually to skip a meal during the day. In a way, it makes sense. Cutting down the total amount of calories will reduce the amount of calories taken in compared to the amount burned, which is when weight loss happens. However, people don’t often consider the negative consequences of skipping meals during the day, which can actually add more weight than it takes away. When meals are skipped, it results in hunger later in the day, causing one to snack instead of stick to one meal. Because of this, we tend to overeat while snacking. Think of the last time you went a long time without eating. Does the feeling of  incessant hunger conjure up  any memories? That time when you ate anything and everything you could reach in the cupboard? This happens because your brain no longer has the energy to say "no" when you want food. When you skip a meal, you are denying your body the glucose it needs to maintain willpower.

‘Tis the season characterized by cans of Libby’s pure canned pumpkin stacked in seemingly endless rows to be sold out in a single day.  There are baskets full of adorable mini pumpkins and those scattered around as décor, and pumpkin flavor returns to the coffee houses. I find that everyone I know either has an obsession with or an aversion towards that warm, spiced flavor.  If you’re like me, you enthusiastically look forward to this time that only comes once a year. What is it about the fall that provokes these cravings for orange foods with cinnamon-like undertones?

While we here at TasteBUds might be a little obsessed with cupcakes and all things deep-fried, every once in a while we like to look around and see what the healthier half of the foodie kingdom is up to. We’ve all seen our fair share of popular diets and cleanses, each one eventually fading into obscurity. However, over the past few years two dietary movements have been embraced  with unprecedented gusto and are gaining traction with the general public.
