I know exactly what you’re thinking. No. No no no no no no no. And I understand. Eating well is hard to do, especially when every time you walk into the dining hall you want to take a pizza to the face. But there are some hidden gems all around Eickhoff that you would have never thought to put together that can create the ultimate, satisfying and beneficial meal. You owe it to your body to put something in it that wasn’t made in a microwave or delivered to your drunken self at 1 in the morning.
Power to the Poultry: The Grill cooks up plain pieces of chicken every day. Ever thought of cutting up a breast to put into a luscious salad or mix in with your wheat pasta from Ceva? This added protein in your diet will help you keep functioning throughout the day, amidst boring lectures and sitting next to that girl that COULD NOT CHEW HER GUM ANY LOUDER.
Omelette du Fromage: It’s hard enough getting out of bed for an 8 a.m. class, let alone squeezing in a decent breakfast, but it truly is the most important meal of the day. With that being said, why would you choose to eat cereals represented by deranged leprechauns, acid-tripping cuckoo birds or con-artist rabbits when you can have a beautiful omelet? The Omelet Bar has a variety of different vegetables, meats and cheeses to customize your omelet exactly the way you want so you can feel like you’re in control of at least one aspect of your life.
Wok The Line: Who doesn’t love having their food cooked on a burning hot circular iron slab? It better not be you or else you are missing out on one of the College’s coolest dining options. Load up on an assortment of veggies, tofu, steak, chicken or shrimp and watch it sizzle on the grill. This meal is guaranteed to be good for you and smoking hot, two things you can’t say about the person you danced with last night at that party.
