Introduction

Growing up, chili was a meal we often had at home, it was one of the few recipes my dad would cook. Mom and Dad eventually came up with a bit of a rivalry surrounding it. Moms was a little soupier and had a bit of spiced flavour, while dads was thicker, all liquid drained from the canned beans and tomatoes, and lighter on spice as dad didn’t enjoy spices. When I moved out I continued to make my own chili, taking cues from both parents, who cooked without recipes.

At home, chili was always served with buttered toast, which is a great side, but for me, tortilla chips make the best companion.

A lot of recipes for chili will have sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh cilantro, green onion. While those can be great, that’s not what this one is about.

Student Review: Umami at DC Bytes

I visited DC BYTES – Umami on Tuesday March 3rd for lunch. I expected it to be extremely busy however there were only a few people in line in front of me when I got there, and I was in and out in under ten minutes. The atmosphere was welcoming and immediately amplified my hunger.

Student Review: The Market at CMH

Entering the cozy warmth of the cafe with three of my friends, I scanned the general area and was impressed at the cleanliness and the organized layout. The food counters were spotless, the drinks were well stocked, and it was easy to navigate the different categories of food throughout the spacious cafe. My mouth watered at the various complementary smells, the scent of sizzling spice drew me towards Warrior Burgers and I hungrily eyed the menu. 

Decoding Nutrition Labels

We’ve all seen it before, but do you really know what it means and what it’s saying? There’s a TON of information found on nutritional labels, and figuring out how to read it may be daunting. However, it is still a very useful and needed skill to have to make informed choices for your diet. The good news is, your days of googling what it all means are done! We’ve summarized the key info you need in just a few paragraphs. So let's get decoding!

A student’s guide on how to improve one’s diet with realistic food swaps.

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.

SKIP THE LINE with the UW Food Services App!

UW Food Services App

Hungry but running late to class? Want to skip the long line at lunch time at Brubakers in SLC? Can the unnecessary waiting time be used to study for tomorrow’s exam, instead?

Then, I recommend downloading and using the recently launched UW Food Services app to pre-order food from BruBakers using a Student Watcard or a credit card to pay.

What time is it? CHA TIME!

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!

Our third concept going into DC BYTES is... ROLLTATION! 

Fun name! What's Rolltation all about? 

Rolltation is Toronto's premier sushi burrito restaurant, and we at University of Waterloo will have the FIRST Rolltation outside of Toronto...ever! 

So, it makes sushi burritos?
