I’ve struggled for many years to incorporate healthy food options. I hated the fact that I had to eat healthy food to survive because it is GoOd fOr YoUr HeAlTh. Eat fruits to get energy, eat vegetables to grow strong, drink milk for calcium, and the list goes on and on. Sigh, so many dietary rules and restrictions. I was always so discouraged to jump right onto restrictive diet routines that strips me of all the foods and flavours I love. What do you mean I can’t eat chocolate? What do you mean I can’t eat chips? What do you mean no more Coca Cola?
However, lately, I had to face the consequences of my poor eating habits. That’s when I decided things must change.

I don’t know about you, but with all the hustle and bustle about Thanksgiving everything I am feeling pretty pumpkin spiced OUT!

There are a lot of reasons to shop for seasonal produce. When we choose what’s in season locally, we supporting our community, and here in the Waterloo area that usually means lots of our nearby farming regions. We also tend to get higher quality taste and nutrition in produce that comes right from our backyard. This is because the fruits and vegetables are harvested at optimum ripeness. While it can be nice to have certain produce available year round, like California strawberries in January, we compromise on flavour and nutrition when food has to travel from far away.
Move over coffee, here comes tea! After hearing the students' cries, shouts and yelps for the need for delicious bubble tea on campus, we've heard you and are SO EXCITED to share that the first CHA TIME will be opening on campus this fall!
Located next to DC Bytes, it will be taking the spot of one of the Tim Hortons. Cha Time will be offering a large assortment beverages including milk tea, green teas, smoothies, slush, and QQ Juice. There will be toppings to add including pearls, grass jelly, pudding, coconut jelly and rainbow jelly!
Being well hydrated means that we are taking in enough fluids to replace those lost through sweat, breathing and normal body functions. This is especially important in the summer because heat and humidity can significantly increase fluid losses — especially if you’re spending a lot of time outdoors.
There were TWO Tim Hortons in the Davis Centre and now there are NONE, what is happening?
In order to offer more choice and options to you, we are making some changes. The Tim Hortons what was next to the old Bon Appetit (now DC BYTES) is being converted into a new beverage franchise. We will update you more on that in the future.
