Healthy College Grocery List


If you're a freshman and going to buy groceries for the first time, it's a good idea to have a starter list with you. Being able to make your own meals and keeping them both nutritious and economical, can be quite a balancing act. You will need a list of grocery items that you can use to make dishes that will require only a few inexpensive ingredients.

Your starter grocery list should include baking mix, sugar, cooking oil, cereal, bread, jam, peanut butter, milk, eggs, cheddar cheese, margarine, butter, frozen meats and meals, ground beef, chicken, tuna, deli meat, apples, oranges, melons, bananas, lettuce, broccoli, corn, mushrooms, potatoes, carrots, beans, peas, onions, lemon juice, apple juice, orange juice, tomato sauce,  barbecue sauce, salsa, salad dressing, oats, rice, pasta, salt, pepper, cinnamon, chili powder, Italian or Greek seasonings, ketchup, mustard, relish, mayonnaise, chips, popcorn, corn chips, cookies, granola bars, soda, coffee, tea, and soup.  These items will vary depending on individual flavor choices.

Make copies of this list and use it to determine which items need to be replaced on your next grocery shopping trips. Simply cross the names of the items you still have or don't need. The items remaining will become your new list. As you become more accustomed to grocery shopping and preparing your own meals, you will want to add new items to your list.

Check online for new meal ideas. There are many websites dedicated to providing college students with new and tasty dishes. The preparation instructions will also provide you with a list of the ingredients you will need. You can simply print off the new list and add it to your old one. Be sure to check for coupons that might reduce the prices of the items on your list. The savings can make it possible to purchase more groceries, or items that are more expensive.

So You're Gonna Be A College Athlete: How to Be a Champion On The Field & In The Classroom

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
