Tips for Eating Well

  • Plan ahead — bring food with you on the go to save money and stay healthy
  • Add fruits and vegetables (fresh, frozen, canned, dried) — because they’re delicious, nutritious and can help you feel good!    
  • Reject diet culture — learn about intuitive eating and understand body diversity
  • Diversify your food choices — it's good for you, and the Earth

Eating Well at UB

Access to Food Preparing Meals Eating Patterns

Healthy Eating Means Healthy Eating Patterns

Rather than judging a single food as “healthy” or “unhealthy”, zoom out to consider what one tends to eat over time. This means all foods can fit, pleasurable foods that may not have many nutrients but we enjoy them (o.k.!) as well as plenty of whole foods that have lots of nutrition (natural color=nutrients). See MyPlate for more guidance. 

Meet With a Dietitian for Nutrition Counseling

Meet with UB’s registered dietitian to assess your current lifestyle and get individual nutrition counseling. We offer guidance on nutrition-related medical concerns, as well as provide support regarding eating on campus, body image, saving money on food and more. We promote a non-diet approach to eating thatencourages self-compassion, diverse foods and body acceptance. We seek to encourage eating well and enjoying an active lifestyle.

Eating Disorders

If you or someone you know has an eating disorder — including anorexia or bulimia — we have an Eating Disorders Team that can offer the counseling, medical care and nutritional support you need.
