Delicious Veggie & Cream Cheese Sandwich

I have recently taken on a new educational task at UNH – similar to that of my Creative Eating project – to get students to recognize healthy and delicious choices in the dining halls.

Each week, we will be focusing on a new nutrition topic.  For example, during “Eat with Color Week,” we intend to emphasize the benefits of incorporating a variety of colors into meal combinations.  We will also be focusing in on portion, eating vegetarian, healthy snacking, mindful eating, stress management and eating, and the importance of powerful breakfasts.

To get started, I teamed up with the UNH Dining dietitian Rochelle L’Italien, and a fellow nutrition student and we brainstormed heaps of tasty meal ideas.  Last week, Rochelle and I spent some time in the dining hall actually putting together a few of the masterpieces to photograph.  We utilized all of the different food stations to create a variety of mouth-watering dishes – I even took the liberty of gobbling up one of the sandwiches we made.

As we progress with our education in the dining halls, I will post pictures of our involvement, weekly meal ideas, and fun insights.
