Quick Meals for People Always on the Go

As students, and more in particular larger people, oftentimes we find ourselves in need of a quick source of food. This may not be the best thing, but all health thoughts aside, we often value quantity or quality. Here are a few options for cheap meals that fill you up, and don”t take long to get.

 

McDonald’s 20 piece Nuggets for $5IMG_2434.JPG

For only $5 this is a good deal, and it’s also easy to share! This is a top item and the quickness of McDonald’s helps as well.

2. Wendy’s 4 for $4

This is a great deal! The amount of food for $4 is great, and gives variety to a meal that could otherwise be boring.

3. Sonic $1 Corn Dogs

Corn Dogs are a great quick meal, and the price is helpful, even someone as large as me can only eat 3 corn dogs, so with a low price of $3 tops, this will be very filling.

These a just a couple of quick meals for cheap, that can help fill a large person for as little as possible.

Living in a Large Family

The Wilson Family +1

Growing up in a large family is a very interesting experience. For one, there is never enough space for everyone, no matter the size of the vehicle. Someone’s legs are always against each others at tables in restaurants, and there is never enough food come Christmas.

There are several values however, emphasized by bigger families that other families can apply to themselves.

  • Never look down on others
    • As large people, it is often easy to look down on people, both literally and figuratively. My parents always instilled in me to treat all people kindly, and to mock others because they may be smaller, or different than you
  • Be helpful
    • This comes in small ways, from helping people reach things if they are not able, to picking up bags for an elder if they need it. Hospitality is crucial, and not seeming as a threat means a lot to people.
  • Be Outgoing
    • As a large person, many people are scared of you immediately because of your size and stature, however, if you introduce yourself, be kind and inviting, oftentimes people will open up to you.
      • One of my sisters favorite sayings is one that is super big to me
        • ” Speak, you may be talking to the person who will cure cancer”

These lessons shape how bigger people react to others and can deescalate situations and help create relationships that would have otherwise not occurred
