When you get to college, the most difficult thing will not be getting up for that 8 a.m. class on Friday morning, nor will it be staying awake through art history. The most difficult thing you will have to do is try to obtain a cheap healthy diet. Did you know that mozzarella sticks are 186% more popular among college students than they are among regular diners? There is a reason that college students struggle. College food courts and their other food offerings are notoriously unhealthy, and expensive. If you want to save money and eat healthier foods, then you will need to step into the realm of healthy college cooking.
Why is a healthy diet important?

Like vegetarianism and veganism before it, the Raw Food Diet gets a bad wrap as being some concoction of crazy hipsters that are out of touch with reality. The uninitiated often think that Raw Food Diet plans are based on pseudoscience and nature-based religions that have little real fact that they are based on.

Here are some of the talking points.%3Cbr%3E
- Convenience Conundrum. As the pace of life continues to pick up, our food options get faster too. With this speed comes a huge decrease in the nutritional value of the food we eat. Raw food diets avoid all the nasty side effects of trans fat, bad cholesterol, processed sugars, partially hydrogenated oils… anything used to make the mass preparation of food faster and cheaper. So do raw diets mean you need to spend a little more prep time on
We all want to eat better, for whatever reason. Whether for weight loss, energy increase, or maintenance as we age, there is now and will always be a push to have a more healthy diet plan. Lately, a lot of attention has been paid to raw food diets, and their potential benefits. While the “science” behind the reasoning is yet to be conclusively proven (for the pros AND the cons), there are some benefits that require no backing, and are as intuitive as breathing.
Leafy greens, for instance. Many raw food diet plans espouse the virtue of eating spinach, kale, and some lettuces, especially as part of a salad or uncooked garnish. The darker the color of the leaf, the more nutrients you will get (for instance, dark colored kale has far more nutritional value than pale iceberg lettuce). Raw food diets require that yo
