This month, FITWELL has been hosting the Real Bruins Eat Real Campaign! FITWELL wants you to Instagram pictures of you eating a well balanced meal On The Hill! From this Friday’s (5/23) dinner menu, here are a few ideas of what to take pictures of:

At Bruin Plate: Take a picture of the Coffee-Braised Brisket with Turnip-Squash Mash and Collards, the Mixed Vegetable Flatbread, and non-fat frozen yogurt.

De Neve at Hedrick: Take a picture of the Spanish Tilapia, Roasted Chayote, and a salad from the salad bar!

Covel: Take a picture of the Spicy Red Lentil Soup, a salad from the salad bar, and the Steamed Cauliflower with Basmati Rice.

And remember to use the hashtag #BruinsEatReal when you post!

DIY Healthy Snack


Are you getting tired of dining hall food? Why don’t you try making these easy, no-bake energy bites! Here’s what you need:

1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup coconut flakes (I use the shredded coconut from Trader Joe’s)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed (you can order this off amazon or go down to Whole Foods)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Now all you have to do is stir all these ingredients in a medium sized bowl until it’s all mixed together. After that, just stick it in your mini fridge for a half hour and let it sit. Then you can take out the mixture, roll them into bite size pieces, and store them in an airtight container for up to a week! ┬áThis recipe is courtesy of the blog Gimme Some Oven.
