UBC well-being manager says proper nutrition is achievable with a little planning, commitment

In the busy life of a university student, sometimes the first thing that gets sacrificed is healthy eating.

Meals can consist of quick and inexpensive options like instant noodles or macaroni and cheese. But the University of British Columbia's manager of nutrition and well-being says there are ways for students to get the nutrition they need, without breaking the bank.

Melissa Baker offered up some helpful diet tips for students while speaking with host Rick Cluff on The Early Edition.

Get your cooking skills up to snuff

Baker often encounters students who can't cook rice or boil an egg properly when they first arrive on campus. She says students who can't cook a basic meal will rely on a lot of take-out meals — and the costs can really add up.

It's a good idea for students to bring recipes from home when they head to school, and to trade healthy, cheap recipes with their peers.

Baker also tells students to pick up a copy of World Food for Student Cooks, which focuses on introductory cooking skills and basic, inexpensive recipes.
