What else? Oh yeah! What are you going to eat now that you’re off the school food plan? The healthiest and least expensive way to eat is to prepare your own food.
If you’re about to purchase cookware, take a look at these 2 posts, which can help you buy what you need without breaking the bank:
15 Critical Tools For A“fore”dable Cooking
Getting Onto Greens Without A Wedge
If you’re new to cooking and unsure how to go about planning meals so you can be sure to use all of the food you purchase consider downloading a copy of our app-like touchscreen cookbook for college students. It contains all you need to know about the staples you need to stock your kitchen, a cooking glossary, loads of cooking tips and how-to slide demonstrations of cooking techniques. The terms and techniques that appear in the book’s recipes link back to the glossary and technique demos with just a tap of your finger.
The book contains 15 weeks of meal plans, grocery lists, and corresponding recipes, which is the average length of a college semester. Each week is themed around college life and the recipes are fun, tasty, and easy to make. When you download the book to your smartphone or tablet it can go with you anywhere: to the grocery store where you pull up the week’s grocery list with a couple taps to the screen; to your kitchen where you navigate to the week’s recipes in the same fashion; on spring break if you’re renting a house where you plan to keep costs down by cooking some meals; on vacation.
It downloads to all smart devices into iBooks, free Kindle apps, and free Nook apps too.
Make a few of your “to-do’s” Easy, and enjoy the new freedom of independent living off campus!
