Student Nutrition home
This month we offer another special treat. Stop by the Cafeteria to check out our new dish on April 26th. We are offering a mediterranean meal; A chicken curry wrap (Shawarma). Let us know how we did and we hope you enjoy trying out this tasty new meal!
Cool facts: Traditional Shawarma is a Levantine meat prepared on spit (Lamb, chicken, pork, beef are just some meats used), restaurants tend to use a vertical spit, and could be grilled for as long a day. Shavings are then cut off the block of meat when ordered and served with a wrap. Common toppings can include tahini, hummus, amba, or even pickled turnips.
As a special treat, every Thursday in April, the Cafes will be serving Blood Oranges! They are a unique vartiety of orange where the flesh and rind develop a dark red color.
Cool Fact: The color of Blood Oranges comes from a pigment called anthocyanin, not commonly found in citrus fruits. This pigment is usually found in red fruits such as strawberries. Blood Oranges are loaded with Vitamin C and Antioxidents!
Join us in the exciting adventure as we try out new items!
