One of the toughest parts of winter is trying not to forget all of our healthy eating habits that we work so hard to maintain in the warmer months. I wanted to make sure that I’m still eating a colorful diet and not going too heavy on carbs or cheese (my weaknesses) so I came up with this wrap recently. Its super filling, not too heavy, and is easy to assemble.
One of the best parts of being a Penn State student is the endless amount of activities that are available for everyone to get involved with. Valley was lucky enough to speak with Natasha Bailey, a student who is very passionate about one of her organizations: Project Cahir.
As temperatures drop and the wind chill seems a little less forgiving, we find ourselves craving delicious fall foods. But if you can’t help but feel guilty after treating yourself to some pumpkin pie and apple cobbler then stress no more.
Lately, not being basic has been everyone’s main concern. We all know the classic traits of the basic Penn State girl are, and it’s been mocked endlessly. But we cannot forget that Penn State boys are just as likely to exhibit those basic boy traits too. One of those trends that we love to see when the weather gets colder is Timberland Boots.
One of the greatest traditions of the Halloween season is visiting haunted houses, tapping into your fear, and having a great night with some friends. When I was in high school I was lucky enough to have an awesome seasonal job. I got to be an actor in a haunted house. While I worked there I had some of the best times of my life because I got to see people from all walks of life react differently to the fear they experienced in the haunted house.
If you like music, theatre, jokes, dancing and enthusiasm then you should make sure to check out ‘Catch Me If You Can’ by the Penn State Thespians at Schwab auditorium this weekend. Valley was lucky enough to be able to sit in on their final dress rehearsal and the show is great.
So you finally committed to spending a semester of college abroad. You have been through months of applications, paperwork, and deadlines and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel! But there are still some things you have not taken care of yet, like considering budget or packing. There is something else you need to consider: where you are going to live.
When I heard that Penn State was getting a Jamba Juice in the HUB I honestly could not believe it. Could it be? The smoothie place that I’ve only been able to treat myself to while in New York could really be coming here? In our HUB? But it’s true; we’ve been blessed with another great food chain on campus.
As a Penn State student living abroad, there are plenty of things I miss about State College. I long for the beautiful green campus, rowdy Saturday nights and of course my friends.
I arrived in Rome three days ago jetlagged and delirious, but unbelievably excited to finally begin my semester abroad. Over winter break, I endured endless questions from family and friends wondering if I felt ready and if I was scared of anything I’d have to face.
The computer labs are full and you can’t find a comfy seat in the library if your life depended on it. Your hands are cramped, you haven’t showered in two days, and you can’t remember the last nutritious meal you had – all the symptoms of finals week in college.
We’re approaching finals week and the weather is frigid and unforgiving, so I figured there was no better week for a soup recipe. This is one of my mom’s favorite soups to make when I’m at home, so I made it my own.
Like little kids, it seems like it’s not an easy task to get college students to eat their vegetables. I’ve had many friends tell me that they don’t like most vegetables or that they’re boring.
There’s nothing more inconvenient than catching a glance of your face in the mirror during class only to notice your eyeliner is smudged or your foundation has completely worn off thanks to the rough Happy Valley weather.
Halloween is one of the best times of the year. Who doesn’t love dressing up in silly costumes and gorging on candy just like when we were kids? I know I love Halloween, but I hate the thought of killing my healthy eating streak with so many tempting seasonal foods.
If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I’m a huge fan of smoothies. They’re always filling, can substitute for a meal or dessert and can be made in basically any combination.
Being Italian it’s not often that I eat pasta unless I’m with family, but sometimes I’m at school and the cravings for carbs just won’t go away. I had the idea for this dish while looking up healthy recipes online and I was inspired.
So you’re getting ready for class – you’re dressed, make-up done, and your hair is tossed in a carefully crafted messy bun, but somehow you know your look just is not complete. You need to accessorize!
Looking for a pick-me-up salad after a hard workout? It’s vegetarian, packed with protein and so delicious. It is also a great way to revamp some foods you may have laying around the kitchen.
There is truly nothing like State College during a football weekend. As Penn State students we know and love those chaotic, loud, and nonstop fun-filled weekends, so we understand why our friends from other schools would want to experience them as well.
