This blog was originally made for a Journalism Convergence course that I took this fall. With every post written, I have grown to love blogging and would really like to continue to do so!
“eggsnbakin” – I actually do not eat bacon unless it is put with other foods, like pasta or a sandwich. I do however enjoy eggs, in any shape or form. I love that they can be made different ways and put with many other ingredients.
There are many health benefits that come with eating them too… According to Livestrong™, they aid in cell membrane function. Read all of the nutrition facts here.
One of my favorite ways to eat an egg is in Eggs Benedict, where the eggs are poached. Check out one of the best recipes here, made with avocado and tomatoes. Read all about poached eggs here.
As far as bacon goes, Spaghetti Carbonara is a favorite dish. This recipe includes Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley leaves and only takes 20 minutes to cook!
Enjoy these recipes and don’t forget to check out my website here for even more food love!
Currently craving: brie cheese and apples because I’m fancy like that.
I interviewed Steven Hischier, manager at Sandella’s Flatbread Café about his thoughts of maintaining healthy eating throughout college. He also shared with me the history of the restaurant and some favorite menu items! Check out the interview, along with the extended version, here. Sandella’s is located at the bottom of the hill here on campus. Enjoy!
Snacking in college is unavoidable. It often takes the place of meals and plays a large role in our study and free time. The least we can do is choose wisely when it comes to this. My roommate and I have cut back a lot on processed snacks, unlike last year, when every Pop-Tart flavor was on display on our bookshelf.
A new favorite of ours is hummus…
A main ingredient to this delicious spread is chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans. These beans are an excellent source of protein and fiber, all while keeping our cholesterol levels low (see all of the health benefits here). Another bonus to this snack is that it is served on our very own campus! They have it in the caf for lunch and dinner everyday, along with pita bread, carrots, celery sticks, and grape tomatoes, all great options to eat with the hummus. It was recently put in the pub as part of our meal exchanges as well, served with pita bread, carrots, and celery sticks.
This is just one tasty alternative to snacking as a college student- it can be as easy as apple slices and peanut butter. See some more favorites here.
Currently craving: a chocolate frosty from Wendy’s (there are two locations right down the road- help me).
