Not Your Average College Food

March 26, 2015

Even though Tufts has a lot of tasty and nutritious options on campus, it can still be difficult to eat healthfully at college. When time gets crunched from an onslaught of exams and activities, you cannot always make it to the dining hall or the student center for real food. But some students have found a way around this. The article below from NPR’s food site, the salt, tells the story of Jenny Hu, a junior at Johns Hopkins University that has made it her mission to stay nutritious (and delicious) with her college cuisine. Her blog Not Your Average College Food has beautiful recipes.

Check it out for yourself – the BAE (Bacon, Avocado, Egg) Sandwich below looks pretty good, doesn’t it (pictured below)? Many of these can be made in a microwave or toaster oven, and all can be made by someone with little cooking experience. There is also a “Healthy” section comprised of recipes with lean proteins, healthful fats, and creative ways to eat veggies and fruits.
