The Little Things: Regular salad options

Amanda Bagnall-Newman, Visual Media Editor

Sometimes we need to take a step back and appreciate the little things around campus. This week’s admiration is for the specialty salad and fruit options that have been added to the lunch line.

Lakeland’s dining services has opened a newer, healthier option for lunch. Every weekday for lunch, the first two options on the serving line will feature a specialty salad and fresh fruit. As a huge salad fan myself, I was ecstatic when I heard the news.

Dining services made the transition after hearing students requests for a better variety of salad and fruit options. This is the best part about it: students made a realistic request and Lakeland responded. I love when stuff like this happens, because too often do students complain about something amongst each other and never do anything about it.

Or when people do speak up, it’s with impractical ideas like a swimming pool or Muskie Grill delivery. Yes, these would be cool options, but they aren’t realistic for the university.

Fruit and salad are so expensive, and can’t truly be bought for a single person. When you buy salad and fruit, you have to buy it in bulk, and then it expires faster than you can eat it. As much as I love salad, I don’t want to eat it for every meal. The dining option allows us to buy and eat however much we want without being wasteful.

So treat yourself to something healthy and delicious, grab a salad for your next dinner. Your body will thank you for it, and your pocket book will too.
