Today is the last day of Nutrition Week 2009. Thanks to your interest and participation, Nutrition Week 2009 was a major success!
If you were among the many who went to one of our dining locations (MSB Cafeteria, Robarts Cafeteria, Sammy’s, Sid’s Café, The Buttery, Howard Ferguson Dining Hall, Veda and Wyilwood Café) this week, you were treated to a $5 Nutrilicious meal of Turkey Tacos, Chicken Curry, Vegetarian Curry and a Whole Wheat Pasta dish. If you missed out, worry not, we will post the recipes online so you can make it at home!
Perhaps you attended one of the World Food Week events, or came to Eat Local! for a free vegan lunch. Or maybe you strolled through our Weekly Local Farmer’s Market (which is now indoors where it’s nice and toasty) and picked up some fresh produce or delicious breads. Some of you even came down to Chestnut Residence for their famous all-you-care-to-eat lunch.
If you are one of the students, staff and faculty members who registered early, you were treated to a healthy cooking class followed by dinner which you made!! We are looking forward to your feedback, and suggestions for future classes.
If you were unable to attend, no problem. We have a short video showing Nathan Barratt teaching his class how to make Mediterranean food (coming soon) as well as ALL the recipes (see below). We suggest you try these recipes at home. If you run into problems or have questions, feel free to leave us a message here, and we will make sure the chefs answer them promptly.

So dear UeaTers, Nutrition Week 2009 is coming to a fabulous end. We would like to thank everybody who participated by picking up a Nutrilicious menu item, attending the cooking classes or stopping to read one of our Nutrition Tips at MSB Cafeteria, Sid’s Café and Robarts. We hope you will continue to practice nutritious cooking and eating, and share what you learned this week with your friends.
