Hello from University of Central Florida! 🙂
Iâ€™m at the student union because Iâ€™m doing two Operation Beautiful presentations today. My presentations are a part of â€œHealthy Knightsâ€ Week. Super excited to be doing more speaking engagements!
Since I had a presentation scheduled at 11 and another at 1, I decided to not pack a lunch and eat on campus. Makes me feel young again!
I wandered around and checked out a few options: pizza, burgers, and fast food EVERYWHERE! But then I stumbled upon this sign:
Um, yes please!
I ordered a falafel wrap with a Greek salad and hummus on the side. With a water, it was $8. Not too bad for campus dining.
The wrap was pretty good. Not super healthy by any means, but definitely tastier than pizza.
I had a little more than 1/2.
Plus, all of my Greek salad:
And most of the very delicious hummus.
I am very pleasantly surprised by UCFâ€™s healthier options. Go, Knights!
Currently, I am eavesdropping on three students who are watching Obamaâ€™s address on health care. So collegiate. I remember being so involved in politics while in school! Iâ€™ve become a little apathetic. Must read up on CNN!
Whether youâ€™re a former student or a current one, what are the best tips you have for eating healthy in college? My favorite tip has always been to start each meal at the buffet with a bed of spinach, and then pile everything else on top!
