The age-old saying of “you are what you eat” is not too far from the truth. The body really does use the nutrients it is given to get through the day.

Always start off with a good, filling breakfast. Making scrambled eggs in the microwave takes less than three minutes.

First, crack a few eggs in a microwave-safe bowl. Add a bit of milk and then whisk until everything is mixed together. Add salt and pepper to give them a little bit of flavor.

Last, put the bowl into the microwave for 45 seconds. Take them out and stir them a little bit and put them back in for 30-45 seconds more. The result is fresh scrambled eggs and adding fruit can make it even better.

Lunch can be expensive, especially at school. Packing a lunch seems like something only elementary kids do, but it can save a lot of money.

A good option is two flour tortillas rolled up with peanut butter on the inside. This is great because it does not need to be refrigerated and it has a good amount of protein. Add some baby carrots and raisins for a snack in between classes.

For dinner, go to the store and pick out a pasta and sauce. Homemade sauce is simply made with a can of tomato sauce and a few spices such as, basil, parsley, oregano and garlic.

Put a small pot on a burner that is set at a very low temperature. When the it is almost done, add the tomato sauce and spices. Season the sauce to taste and let it sit until it’s warm, remembering to stir occasionally.

Eating right does not have to be a chore, finding easier ways will make it more fun to cook at home rather than turning towards unhealthy food.
