Baker’s Table: Daily dessert selections
- Go crazy at the frozen yogurt station—make a froyo cookie sandwich or add a scoop of it to your favorite slice of cake.
- Everything can be made into a sandwich, and a variety of breads and other staples such as peanut butter and jelly are always available. Go all out with veggies and hummus, or treat yourself to a PB & banana.
- Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. Create your own yogurt parfait by layering yogurt, fruit and granola.
- Make your own pizza bagels. Toast the bagels, and then ask for sauce and cheese from the pasta station.
- Make the waffle press your new best friend. Transform an ordinary waffle into a savory egg and sausage sandwich.
- Take trail mix to go. Grab a to-go coffee cup and a handful (or two) of cereal and mix it with items such as raisins or goldfish from the salad station.
- Add taco bar toppings to your salad. It’s like a healthy fiesta.
- Need a heartier soup? Add chicken or sausage from the grill and then top with soft, freshly baked bread croutons.
5 Tips for Healthy Eating
- Stack on the veggies at the salad bar, and look out for creamy dressings.
- Occasionally swap your real burger for a veggie burger or chicken.
- Take advantage of the fresh fruit at the salad bar.
- Try sweet-potato fries instead of regular fries—they’re even more delicious.
- Aim for a BALANCED meal —one that includes carbs, protein and healthy fats.
Equivalency is food points that a first-year student gets through a missed weekday breakfast or dinner swipe at Marketplace. If a student misses a weekday breakfast, a $4.25 meal equivalency can be applied on the same day with a made-to-order breakfast at Penn Pavilion on West Campus or toward an a la carte lunch selection in Marketplace. If a student misses a weekday dinner, an $8.25 meal equivalency can be applied during the same week to food at Trinity Café.
