Greetings from EarthFare’s cafe 🙂 My morning flew by as I worked on an assignment due this Friday for Foodservice in between Organic and lunch. We had to find 9 lacto-ovo recipes for a hypothetical hospital menu, detail them in Excel, and do a complete nutritional analysis using this ancient food software in the lab. Each recipe had to have a WHOLE EGG and 1 oz of dairy per person, which is much harder than it sounds. Think about a recipe that serves 8 people – it had to have 8 eggs! So it was harder than it seemed, but I just wrapped up the nutritional analyses this morning. Whoo hoo!
I walked over to EarthFare (about 10 minutes off campus) to meet Erin, R.D. for lunch. She just passed the R.D. exam (!! so jealous !!) and is just working on her masters here now.
I thought about getting soup (there was heavenly smelling shrimp + corn soup) or a wrap, but I just love the variety of salads so much I got one instead – with a little of the best tofu in the world and the best salmon in the world. I did cut back on the heavy ingredients and this salad only cost 2/3 of last weeks
In the mix:
- Spinach + mixed greens
- Lite Raspberry dressing
- Bell peppers
- Garbanzo beans
- Zucchini + squash pieces
- Some strange greens
- The best tofu
- 3 pieces tortellini
- 2 tbsp orzo salad
- 3 pineapples with a splash of yogurt + granola
- Cabbage slaw
- The best salmon
- 3 big croutons
And a blueberry bar sample for dessert!
Edited to add: I also had an oatmeal raisin cookie sample and a piece of olive bread when I got back up for some water!
OK, gotta get to workin’! Chem lab @ 2pm.
