As a grad student at Syracuse University in the 1990s I was a vegetarian and ate well. I had a diet full of produce, brown rice, and legumes. To supplement my diet I scoured the Daily Orange, the campus newspaper, for events on campus with REFRESHMENTS SERVED in the advertising. I’d show up and hover around the refreshments filling up on humus, veggies, and fresh fruit particularly expensive fruit like pineapple, kiwi, and grapes all while trying to be as engaged as possible for the real reason for the event. Knowledge is the key to one’s food choices and frankly when we know better we tend to eat better.  I sought out the best information on nutrition and made informed food choices.
