Student's Summary Assessment:
Rationale for Grades Given
If I were JUST gluten free it would be easier- FABULOUS meals! However, I have a long list including gluten, some dairy, raw vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, beans, legumes, beef, pork, and highs fat foods, it’s a bit harder for me to find food. They have SO much variety and *usually* I can find something. I had an initial meeting with the dietitian on campus who made me feel so comfortable, especially because there’s a menu online, so if I can’t find foods I can use my dining dollars at a campus restaurant, or find food right off campus. But most of the time the food on the menu is not served so I’m stuck eating lettuce because I used my meal swipe. I was also told I could just ask for a plain chicken breast, rice, or vegetables at any time- I have found this to not be true, and it’s absolutely embarrassing to when servers make you feel stupid for suggesting such a thing. Overall, when there’s food, it’s SO GOOD. But there’s equal times where I have to go without food. Because the website is false.
LOVE my town! Good golly tamale is dedicated GF and has the BEST ginger snap banana pudding! There’s some terrific Asian places with incredible options. We have a Trader Joe’s close by. We even have a GF donut shop!!!
