Many colleges now serve healthy options. Look for homemade soups without cream sauces, veggie or turkey burgers-if whole wheat breads and rolls are an option, choose those. Many have a stir-fry station where you can tell them what meat and vegetables you want-just make sure that aren't using tons of butter or oil. Salads are always available, but just watch the cheese, croutons, and salads with mayo. Use light salad dressings. If there is a salad bar, make it healthier with beans, a small handful of nuts and load it with fresh vegetables. You can choose chicken, turkey or lean beef for sandwiches-opt for mustard instead of mayo, load it with vegetables and select whole wheat breads. Limit your intake of desserts and make sure to include fresh fruit every day.
