On Monday, Professor Seiner announced that his wife had made Halloween cookies! This was a lifesaver, as that class meets during lunchtime (12:40-1:40). Thanks to Megan Seiner who saved many a growling stomach, but especially mine!
I am finding out the difficulties behind eating conveniently and healthy. In order to avoid unnecessary expenses, it becomes imperative that I prepare my meals in advance. No more impromptu Wendy’s trips for lunch. Breakfast has consistently been 2 Pop-tarts (strawberry, if it matters) that ring in at $0.18/apiece, thanks to a handy sale at Food Lion.
That brings me to my next point- fresh fruit and veggies are expensive! I tried to buy some apples, oranges, and bananas- not cheap. Unfortunately, this continues a vicious cycle: those on SNAP benefits are unable to eat healthy without further expenditures. Rice and potatoes can be bought all day long, but when it comes time to satisfying the food pyramid (does that still exist?), you have to shell out a little more dough. I hear Aldi’s has good fruit and veggies for affordable prices. May be worth checking out.
