Hello everyone – I am Rachel Tanner, a new addition to the Dalhousie Food Services team and one of the Registered Dietitians on the Halifax campus! [Read more…]
First and foremost, our team wants to thank you for working with us towards maintaining a safe and positive environment in the dining halls during these difficult times.
Here is a recap of some of the delicious food we served up and fun dining hall events and station pop-ups that occurred throughout the year! We couldn’t have done it without you, and we have had a blast engaging with each and every one of you!
The warm summer months are approaching, and we want to send you off with some important and easy hydration tips to keep your thirst quenched and hydration needs satisfied!
It’s our priority to provide students with and introduce them to the local food on their plates. In March, our second Local Food Day of the semester celebrated two local Atlantic farms, den Haan Greenhouses and Valley Mushrooms, who we source produce from year-round.
March is Nutrition Month and this year’s theme is “Good for YOU! Dietitians Help You Find Your Healthy”. The focus is for dietitians to help you find your healthy as healthy eating looks different for everyone.
Therefore, there is no better time to chat about mindful eating! If you are new to the concept, we will explore what mindful eating is, tips for implementing mindfulness, and the benefits. In fact, Canada’s food guide suggests practicing mindful eating habits as an essential component to maintaining a balanced lifestyle since healthy eating is more than the foods you eat.
Milk versus plant-based beverages, it’s quite the trendy topic these days! It may feel overwhelming as there seems to be a new milk alternative on the market regularly – so how do you decide which is best for you? People choose milk alternatives for diverse reasons – allergies, intolerances, personal preferences, concerns regarding their environmental impact, or ethical reasons.
Can you believe final exam season is approaching?! With a few weeks to go, we want to make sure you are well rested and prepared to finish the semester off on a strong note. Keep reading for common challenges students face during exam time and advice on how to improve your exam game.
A year has passed since we welcomed Mark Sawler from Sawler Gardens Ltd. in the dining halls to teach us about carrots and their farming practices. As we source various other root vegetables from Mark’s farm as well (whenever they are in season), Mark re-joined us virtually to talk all things root vegetables.
