I was supposed to meet a friend for lunch but she wasn’t in our meeting spot ?? Oh well. It took me 20 whole minutes to navigate the dining hall and survey everything that is offered. There was lots of fresh looking food – and the best part is that they had lots of the nutritional information on display. Nice job, Winthrop!
I started with a salad, of course 🙂
- Shredded carrots
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 4 spears asparagus (grilled in oil)
- 1 tsp honey mustard
Also had the most delicious soft roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I could have had a slice of whole wheat toast, but the sandwich line was a MILE long. Note to self: wait until 1pm to eat here when the crowd dies down a lot.
I also decided on potato soup, which was listed as 110 kcal for 6 fl. oz. Not bad! It tasted great, but I’m not sure how it was prepared, and I’m sure if I saw the nutritional ingredients I might not choose this. I found some delicious lemon-garlic broccoli to put in it (and put some on my salad too!)
And I found these on the sandwich bar and will nibble on them this afternoon!
Looking back I should have had skim milk instead of water for some dairy and added some kind of protein to my salad (turkey meat?), but it was so crowded and my backpack was SO heavy I just had to sit down!
All together for ~375-400 kcal.
Although filling, this lunch wasn’t too high in calorie. I’ll be snacking soon! I was going to have an ice cream cone (they have iced milk) but it was too cold and I had to run because…..
I left my lab stuff in my trunk!! This meant I had to hike (yes, hike) all the way back across campus to get my goggles and lab book. After this post I have to hike all the way back to where I had lunch! Argh! At least it’s great exercise!! I just wish it wasn’t so cold out.
I have my trail mix bag, carrot sticks and am planning a hot chocolate with skim milk when I get home around 4pm after Chem Lab.
Amazing that I had a 2 hour lunch break and didn’t do ANY studying!!
Physio is REALLY hard. I was totally lost.
See you tonight for shrimp and vegetable pasta!
