What are good healthy food choices for studying?
As a university student, I always tend to pick unhealthy food choices while studying. I always have the need to eat something. So I was wondering if there were any quick snacks I can conjure up for those long nights.
You can buy chewy bars or granola bars, they are what I call brain food. Also pasta gives you energy, do if you are going to crash styding one night drink pasta with cold coca cola.
Any cereal or grain snack is very good.
What are some healthy food choices for my one year old?
I don’t want to be the too busy mom who warms up mac and cheese or spaghetti O’s for her little one. I want him to have healthy meals to set him up to make healthy decisions later on. I’m just running out of ideas for him. He won’t be one until September, but he already is through with me spoon feeding him. Also, I’m so used to watching how much he eats by reading the ounces posted on the side of the baby food jar. How do you know how much food to give a pre-toddler?
I guess it really depends on how well your baby is doing with eating foods of different textures at this point. I agree with previous posters, soft foods like bitesize pieces of fruit (I’d steam harder fruits like apples and pears bc they can be too hard to swallow if they cant chew well, and cut grapes in half to minimize the choking risk) and steamed veggies. You can make soft things like quesadillas filled with cheese and shredded chicken and just cut them into really tiny chunks. Breads, spaghetti/pastas, hot dogs cut into small pieces…. Probably your baby could eat a lot of what you are aleady preparing for the rest of your family to eat. Just be sure that it isnt too hard to chew, and that it’s in bite sized pieces. You can give them a portion the size of your palm, and if they want more, let them eat until they are done! You dont have to use extreme portion control, so long as you are feeding them healthy meals and your baby isnt overweight (which your doctor would tell you if it was something you needed to be concerned about.)
What are healthy food choices for someone who wants to lose 40 pounds?
I am 20yrs old, male, 220 and I want to lose 40 pounds. I box 4 times and week and I also run when I have the chance, however, I eat everything. When I start it’s difficult to stop. I want foods that are healthy and I could eat and not gain much weight. I must admit that I have slowed down on the food I eat!
Lettuce & tomatoes
Carrot & celery sticks
Broiled chicken or fish
NO SODA, MAYO, SUGARY ANYTHING, FRIED ANYTHING, FAST-FOODS (except salad or baked potato).

Lean proteins, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. No processed crap, no sodas.
What are some healthy food choices for a second time pregnancy?
Please help me! I am pregnant for the second time, but I swear I am always hungry. I have been eating fast food, which I am ashamed about because I know it’s poison for you. But by the time I get out of work, I am so hungry I am shaking and I know it would take too long to cook. I gained 8 pounds in 2 weeks, and that was the final straw. What are some suggestions for quick, healthy meals for me? I CANNOT blow up, I did such a good job with my first.
I ate tons of salad and sandwiches the second time around. Yogurt smoothies for breakfast (made at home…those at the smoothie places tend to be full of sugar and other empty calories, and are WAY too expensive). Egg salad, peanut butter (occasionally) and such for lunch. I made lots of salad ahead of time. I would have some chopped chicken from the night before, or some cheese, or some chopped egg in the salad. Also, don’t use fat free dressing. You need a little fat for 2 reasons: it helps you feel fuller, and it also helps your body absorb the vitamins in the salad. Low fat is fine. I LOVE full-fat ranch. I would prefer to eat most of the salad dry, then have a few bites at the end with the really yummy stuff than eat some low-fat dressing.
Don’t be ashamed about the fast food. I’m pretty much off of it, as I feel very sleepy after eating it. With 2 homeschooled kids, I have NO time for being tired! Still, it’s OK to have a treat every now and then.
Worst case scanario, you will gain some weight. I gained a TON with my first child, and after two children, I now weigh less than I did when I got married. Of course, there are risks with excessive weight gain, but I gained SO much, and I was fine.
Edit: Almonds are GREAT to fill you up.
