As one of the first 5-6 people on site,
arriving early, had to ask college staff/ info desk
for the Microwaves,
as they were not present, but listed on the brochure, so to speak, when we arrived...
Sink could use a garbage disposal for food, but work around it,
as college dorms, not old people's housing ;-/
Local (across town) Italian place
Asian across the street from Togis...
For some reason not chosen.
Sit down place next to more diner place, Both Togis?
And sign in the back of the parking lot off the street...
With games in the deli section
And sign above the large window facing out to street
Sales and prices,
[note meat in the bottom line...]
And wonder if Asian would have better...
View down the road so one could locate it if they wish...
In East? Bradford?
Started considering forraging the local mushrooms
on the grass in the campus...
but it might not be organic...
certainly local, but pesticides?
not to mention psychedelics? 8-/
Beets and something,
some vegan meatloaf?
with "red sauce"
which didn't mention spices,
something with pesto?
and white rice pilaf?
(I pick out the cooked carrots)
pasta in light sauce (likely the culprit with moi),
chick peas aka garbanzos?,
(and likely a plate of some of what I was choosing)
Some of my choices from the first night salad bar...
as very hungry from missed/ light/ expensive meals before,
and sampling what is available
(not sure about the peppers?,
sometimes the salad dressings, etc)
Big plate of rice, a staple, depending upon what is added to it,
2 big juices, apple and cranberry,
and fruit too
Discovered on the other side of the salad bar,
grilled veggies (too much oils of unknown types??),
and tortillas (usually ok, but probably hydrogenated oils, = bad,
but little choice with other heavily wheat based breads)
And discover Life Cereal, and inside the milk fridge,
try opening a container of rice milk
(aluminum foil broke but punctured it somehow)
And add some unknown "red sauce" the staff pointed out
(near the maple syrup and towards Ice Cream/ yogurt/ something or other freezer)
Lunch? boca burger overcooked/ lightly burned
(cook probably assumes
because it's not oozing meat fats it's not done enough...),
(bun/bread likely a problem with me),
tomato, ketchup, mustard,
and fruits and tortilla,
(for me, fruits high water content and likely diuretic = run out of lecture to use bathrooms x3+)
And breakfast REAL MAPLE SYRUP
(in an area where the make it, but could have Bought Locally instead of Wegman's Groc Store???)
Home fries (with what oils?),
ketchup (Regan era people know it's a vegetable...),
vegan scrambled eggs (tofu w too much onions, peppers,etc???)
and my staple, Oatmeal,
clumpy, somewhat dry, and missing usual my yellow baking raisins and Trader Joe's Golden Berry Blend
All together now, but wait...
there were raisins at salad bar,
so go ask for some for my oatmeal!!!
(I'm fussy about the color of them,
don't ask what the dark ones look like to me...)
And orange and apple juice,
the orange tasted odd/ off, so maybe that has something to do with getting sick??? Or the oily home fries? or the vegan scrambled egg, or the stress? or combo of all?
Lunch, heavy on the fruit,
lighter on the pasta salad,
add peanut butter (hydrogenated oils = BAD!),
on bread likely to make me sick...
and some fake meatballs? to try?
Labels might be up top?
that red sauce on eggplant?
and some mixed thingie with what sauce???
SWEET POTATOES! YIPPEE
and corn on the cob,
assuming not too much butter/ oil = Good
And get labels, and asked if they wanted to be in the photo,
the cashier/ card swiper in question OKed it,
they are prep/ cooks, servers, not sure which,
but likely amused by my comments
"before the masses/ the hoards"
decimate it, or similar
and back to hydrogenated oils in peanut butter
(one serving girl had never even heard of Almond butter),
too much sugar in jams/ jellies and
ended up sleepy during and after lecture(s)...
pushed to get breakfast on the go,
left an OA daily reader as collateral
for the returning the dishes with the card swiping woman...
and likely lunch, fruits, and tortillas w jam & no likely peanut butter as noticing too tired...
mystery combo mixed stuffs,
fruit and (hydrogenated oils) tortillas
The result of not having enough of the right foods = a slip in OA program, and a hugely unhealthy vending machine at the laundry, had to wait for hours to wash and dry, nervous socially with volleyball playing young peoples, etc...
and a usual breakfast (Friday?)
eggos, waffles, and real maple syrup, while sugary, was good, mixing with fruits, and a little of the suspected stuffs...
and a light Friday lunch,
nervous with the invited company
and uninvited intrusion,
so left area for a while
coming back to someone invited leaving
and social + eating + odd goodbyes
= got suicidal while driving
