We are half-way through my Top 10 Freshers Foodie Tips, and hopefully you're already feeling a bit more confident about heading off to uni!
Tip number 5 is to quite simply plan your meals.
This may sound boring, but there are a number of benefits!
Firstly, not only will this stop you going to the shops and buying EVERYTHING in sight because it all looks so yummy... (Supermarkets are cleverly designed to make you buy everything you don’t need)...but it will also prevent food waste! If you know you’re going to eat it, you know it’s not going to end up in the bin a month later once it’s gone mouldy at the back of the fridge!
For those of you who don't want to put on "The Freshers 7" (the number of lbs the average fresher puts on in their first term), then this will also stop you giving in an ordering take-aways. If you already have dinner planned, you can easily say no, when someone comes knocking with the pizza menu!!!
