When in the Cafeteria...

In the Lehigh cafeterias, with my restrictions I am limited to making my own salad from the salad bar (where I control what ingredients go in), fruits from the fruit basket (oranges, bananas, and peaches if they have them), plain brown rice, and steamed broccoli. So many times when they don't have these things I ask for them anyways...

That Annoying Girl at the Salad Bar:
I guess that was me today (and most days)- I wanted to make a colorful salad but there were no bell peppers or eggs. I asked, but they said not today. I asked if they had spinach; nope not today. Instead, I made a green and black tuna salad and went to the fruit baskets to get an orange and a banana... but there were only oranges and apples; no bananas! I asked the man in charge of the dining hall if there were any bananas- he said he would check for me. I started eating my salad, got some more, and when it was time to leave I happily left with a banana in each hand! It was worth being Annoying Girl.

Ingredients: 3/4 cup tuna chunks, 2 cups romaine lettuce, tsp olive oil, 2tsp balsamic vinegar, cucumber slices, tbsp kalamata olives, orange, 2 bananas, cup of water

1. Go to the salad bar and add 2 cups of lettuce to bowl

2. Add some cucumber slices and tbsp black kalamata olives

3. Add 3/4 cup of tuna

4. Dress with tsp olive oil and 2 tsp balsamic vinegar

5. Get a cup of water!

6. Grab an orange and 2-3 bananas (friends may ask if you're a monkey, but it's okay...)

7. Get more if still hungry!
