So, I know I know how to eat right. And I know what I need in my fridge. But somehow, this isn’t working out. In my apartment (i share with three other girls), I’m finding it extremely difficult to eat properly. And I’m not just talking about the stares at my protein shake they saw me make today in our blender (protein powder, natural peanut butter, oats, olive oil). I’m talking about the lack of room in the fridge (everyone’s pokey stix and leftover frozen pizzas), the lack of room in the freezer (frozen pizzas, mozzarella sticks, corndogs, eggo waffles, chicken nuggets, ice cream…) and the fact that i’m not “allowed” to have a mini freezer of my own because it will take up too much energy (even though one roomate insisted on having the ac on at 70 degrees while it was still warm out).
this may sound like a rant here, and it is- but it’s also a cry for help- i work in a bbq restaurant about 30 hours a week, go to school full time, and try to get in 4 or 5 workouts a week while not failing out of school. what can i do to improve my ease of nutrition? i only have acess to a grocery store about once a week, because of time restraints, and i don’t have much room to keep food refrigerated or frozen. any suggestions?
also, since i don’t have a lot of time (NOT cuz i can’t cook, i can and LOVE to cook), does anyone have simple recipes that don’t take a ton of time to make?
i’d really appreciate the feedback.
