It’s International Hot & Spicy Food Day. We’ve got the Sriracha, at least for now.

Sriracha Rooster Sauce, the “go-to” chili sauce of the moment, is found in over two dozen recipes at Tufts Dining. There’s a lot of press about this sauce right now which is currently unavailable. Check out this Boston Globe article that Patti Klos, the Director of Tufts Dining & Business Services is quoted in.  She’s one of the many that think this U.S. made HOT sauce is pretty COOL!  image

Will there be more coming?  We bet there will…

 

Healthy Eating @ Tufts: Portion Sizes

Did you ever wonder what ideal portion sizes are? In our dining centers, we have cards with nutrient and calorie information for the food we serve Packaged food has similar nutritional labeling. You might find it interesting to know what reasonable portion sizes are for the foods you eat. 

 "During stressful periods in life like final exams, eating well and getting proper nutrition is especially important," says our Tufts Nutritionist Julie Lampie.

 

Where’s my knife?

Do we really want Chef Joann cooking in the kitchen at Dewick Mac-Phie Dining Center today?  It looks like she’s a little preoccupied at the moment.  Don’t mind Eric, he’s just trying to be helpful.

Happy Halloween from everyone at Tufts Dining!
