Living on your own or going off to college can be a major challenge, especially with easy access to fast-food stops, potato chips, frozen pizza, soda, etc. With classes and a busy social life you may neglect yourself by eating the wrong foods. In The Complete Guide to Healthy Cooking and Nutrition for College Students you’ll learn the basic nutrition basics that you should eat every day, how to evaluate your new surrounds (Dorm Kitchen, College Cafeteria and Local Restaurants), and obtaining the correct basic supplies for your dorm/apartment kitchen (microwave oven, George Forman Grill, Crock-Pot slow cooker, Blender, Mixer, utensils, cookware, spices, cups, bowls, plates, etc.).
Chapter 6 takes you through the basic cooking terms of the instruments/appliances you use to cook with, along with a few simple dishes, like bacon, eggs, toast, etc. You’ll also learn about freezing and storing foods. There are four separate chapters for each year in college (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior) giving simple but tasty recipes, like Grilled Cheese English Muffin, Crock-Pot Roast, Tacos, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and many other great recipes.
The Complete Guide to Healthy Cooking and Nutrition for College Students is an interesting book for college students, giving great nutrition facts, recipes, tips on exercising, and to help you not to gain 17 pounds at college. The book can be a great gift for a college student or a soon-to-be college student.
