MARQUETTE — Eating healthy can be a hard task for anyone, especially while going through college. Fortunately for NMU students, there are resources available to help them obtain healthy eating habits.
Personal chef and health coach, Mary Malnor, hosted a workshop to help NMU students learn how to eat healthy while on a college budget. They learned how to make the most of their money at the grocery store, along with making delicious and healthy meals.
“We all know that getting through college is hard to do on a budget,” said Leadership Programs Coordinator Savannah Mallo, “and it’s just fascinating to realize what healthy choices you can be making. Even just little tips like not going to the grocery store hungry. We all know that, but I think we do it anyway, and just small everyday ways to make better choices and then overall you’re being a healthier person.”
Students also learned about creating a shopping list, knowing when produce items are in season, how to prepare meals for a week, and many other helpful hints.
