Balanced Breakfasts are hard in the first place, but try it at college…I have 8 am classes every day of the week, and I have to wake up at 6:30 in the morning for showering. If I ate breakfast at the cafeteria, I would have to wake up even earlier. I know 30 minutes in the morning might not seem like a lot, but it really is a lot with the lack of sleep I already get. Besides the option of eating in the cafeteria, I could also buy food and eat it in my room before class. This option is the better of the two, I think, because less time is needed to consume it, but it can be expensive. My aunt took me last week to buy fruit and other healthy foods at Wal-Mart. I bought a variety pack of fruit, consisting of five apples and three oranges. It cost $8, which I think is a lot. So, even if I do decide to be smart and buy food for breakfast, it will not be very cheap. And when it comes to college, cheap is important.
