Mother Nature is Medicine

Mother Nature is Medicine
MOTHER NATURE IS MEDICINE. The Creator has given us everything that we need. It is all here on this Earth and in the Universe. It can be found in the Earth, in the Sky, in the Waters, in the Air. Often times, we, as humans, tend to view nature as something that is "apart" from ourselves. We talk of spending time "in nature." We, in a sense, distance ourselves. In reality, we ARE "a - part" as well. The Great Spirit put us here and blessed us and our ancestors with this beautiful earth. Embracing the Creator and the natural blessings is food & nourishment for the body, mind, and soul. Nature is medicine. ~Peace and Blessings~

Grocery Shopping in College - Just a Look..

What I, as a college student, buy at the grocery store.  First time I took a bus to the grocery store away from Freshman this was a while ago.

Laundry detergent
Mug - gotta have that cuppa!
Black Radiance Lipsticks (some luscious dark colors, oh yes!)
Head phones that don't hurt my ear
French loaf
Amish potato salad
Chobani Apple Cinnamon yogurt - my favorite,  besides the Plain yogurt
An owl charm

Yep, all these things came in handy to me!

Since then, I've taken a few trips every once in a blue moon. But now, it's all about SAVING. I'm fortunate to have a meal plan so why buy things off campus that I can already get at the cafeteria or other food courts (that has already been paid for through student fees)? Unless what the dining services offer is not appealing. Or something that I need or want that the services are Goldfish (the snack!).

Unfortunately, the campus stores are very expensive and is an injustice to the students who are already paying thousands of dollars to attend university. You might pay $2 - $3 for a box of cereal at a store in town, but end up paying $5 - $6 for the same cereal, yet half the size, in the student stores at my university!

So yes, you have to weigh your options with anything. There are certain cases where buying food or snacks from stores in town is more sufficient. Other times, if the food or snack is already paid for (Thank your parents, or whoever helped to pay it!), then it's best to stay on campus and save your money.
