Lauren Lucien is a Creative Writing with English Literature graduate, with five years' experience in catering. She is also the author of University Life: Making it Work for You.
Lauren Lucien is fresh from university and is well versed in the needs of hungry students. Her book provides the recipes for making good filling food but she’s also paying attention to health, budget concerns and timing. There are plenty of ideas for adapting the recipes and notes on what goes with which. Lauren Lucien is also aware that few students will have a vast array of cooking equipment - she keeps it basic using mugs, spoons and of course hands. Student or not, anyone wanting to make good food on a tight budget could benefit from her experience.

As a student I discovered that there was a direct link between what I ate and my energyand concentration levels when studying. Trying to ‘boost’ my body and mind withenergy drinks just made me feel sick after a while, and I was eating crisps and junk foodbecause of the stress of not being able to revise and write essays in the way I knew Icould. Then there was the financial drain – takeaways, snacks from the pasty shop andother fast food was expensive, plus I’d be hungry an hour later because it wasn’t a fillingor balanced meal. So with all these things in mind, I started to change my eating and lifestyle habits bit by bit and found that the food I made myself was cheaper and healthier than junk food. I wrote Student Brain Food to help more students save money, eat better andunderstand what they are eating. I teamed up with Dr Opara, Principal Lecturer in Nutritionat Kingston University, London, to bring you an intelligent student cookbook that feedsyour body and your mind. Enjoy learning more about nutrition, saving money and of course trying out all the tasty recipes in Student Brain Food!
