What do you typically eat?
Anything Easy to Heat up in the Microwave which normally includes TV dinners, frozen foods, dinner that I take and save from either the Brickman cafe or the Commons. For me, since I’m rarely anywhere but the labs or in bed, making food as simple as possible is a must. If I have to spend time cooking or chopping things up, I get aggravated because I have so much work to do.
However, over Winter/Spring/Summer Break it is a completely different story. I love cooking fresh, healthy meals when I have time and learning new recipes. So really, what I eat is completely dependent on how much work I have to do – which I think goes for the majority of people.
How diverse is your fridge?
Again, like I said at the end of my last answer – it really depends on what I’m doing academically or at work. Right now? My fridge is almost completely empty. I almost never buy food unless I hitch a ride with someone considering the fact that I don’t have a car – so I mainly get my food from the school cafeteria which the majority of it isn’t the best or appetizing in the very least.
But the food I do have is frozen vegetables, PB & J (no bread), Soup, and some fruit from the Commons. Not very diverse OR a lot in there at all – especially if I’m up working all night, I really don’t feel like eating just heated up corn at 4 in the morning.
Do I eat in season?
Not particularly. I do try at least. If things are in season I always am sure to buy them – however, I will still buy things that aren’t in season if I really want them.
Do I buy local?
I buy everything at the grocery store!
