So, what can you eat that’s healthy, appetizing, and filling?
– Every cafeteria at Queen’s has a vegetarian and/or vegan station, and the food is usually better because they prepare it in smaller quantities!
– You can usually find vegetarian food at other food stations – just ask!
– Ban Righ and West Campus always have tofu available as a stir-fry option
– Salads in Leonard! Grab a plate from the pizza station and fill it up with lettuce and veggies, then add tofu or beans for protein
– Leonard Cafeteria’s pre-made salad bar often features yummy, high-protein vegetarian options
– The pizza station often serves whole-wheat no-cheese or vegetarian pizza, but it’s not usually listed on the menus near the door
– When nothing seems appealing, or you want a quick snack, have a banana with peanut butter
– Hummus is a great dip for whole-wheat pita bread or vegetables, and it’s a great source of protein
– Cottage cheese is available at every meal, and it’s high in protein and calcium. Try it with fruit at breakfast or as a salad topper at lunch and dinner!
What to Avoid
– The key to good nutrition is variety, so make sure that you don’t end up eating the exact same thing for lunch and supper every day!
– Make sure that carbohydrate-based foods like bread and pasta don’t make up the basis of your meal
– Cheese is a great source of nutrients, but use it sparingly because of its high fat content
