Eating on a Budget

There are thousands of delicious restaurants all across New York City. If I had it my way, I would eat at a different restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day, so that I could taste all of the rich, diverse cuisine in the city. Unfortunately, not everywhere offers NYC student discounts.

But, I’m on a college student budget. I have college loans. Money is tight, so a lot of times, I have to eat at home.

However, eating at home isn’t a bad thing, in fact I like preparing my food and getting creative in the kitchen. I usually feel healthier eating in too, because I’m aware of the sodium and calories in everything I eat, and I can be more selective with my meals. Everyone has their “go-to” food at home– their “home base” or “comfort food.” My go-to item is the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich.


It’s got everything you need– protein, fruit (sweet jelly), carbohydrates. Plus, if you toast the bread you get a little crunch in your bite.

The Campus Clipper has the perfect NYC student discount for a delicious PB&J sandwich from Whole Foods Market. So, if you want to eat healthy, cheap, and feel comforted, then go get some bread, peanut butter, and fruit spread! I think I’ll have one for lunch.
