Aasu Food Essay

1251 words - 6 pages

College students should have a wonderful experience in school, am I right? But not if the students are starving or eating food that they don’t want. Armstrong Atlantic State University, known as the galley, serves the same food every week. The students who live on campus experience the same food every week. Because the students who live on campus are forced to buy a meal plan; it’s part of our term fees. There are some commuters that experience the same food that have bought a meal plan. The food that is served every week is low quality. For the money that students pay for the meals is not worth it because the food is not good quality. But there are solutions to improving the food in the ...view middle of the document...

There are other healthier foods in the morning such as yogurt and fruit but that alone is not enough. So breakfast is not the issue with being healthy but the issue is serving the same food every single morning.
During lunch is the school’s worst time with the unhealthy foods. The cheese on pizza is high in saturated fat, which increases your risk for high cholesterol and heart disease. Not that eating a pizza or a hamburger once in a blue moon is unhealthy but over consumption is and Armstrong’s galley serves them every day so the students have the option to eat pizzas and hamburgers everyday. There is nothing wrong with the occasional burger, fixed as you want it, but it shouldn't be a staple in ones' diet and the serving size should be reasonable, 6 ounces or so, and made with a steak you grind yourself and fresh toppings over the fattening ones or sugar-loaded ones, like relish and ketchup. The galley will sometimes serve chicken but it does not have much protein. For athletes, such as myself, we need lots of protein and the galley does not supply us with that. Chicken will give you protein but the chicken that the galley serves has two times more fat than protein. The saturated fat takes over the protein.
Also cakes, cookies, pudding, and etc… are always served during lunch and dinner. Deserts should only be served during dinner but at Armstrong they are also served during lunch which allows the students to grab sweets during lunch. Deserts are okay once a day but not two times a day every single day.
Another thing is fruit is rarely served in the galley and when fruit is served it will be rotten. I usually eat bananas and I rarely see them in the galley and when I do I will see black stains on the shell and after peeling off the shell I will see that the banana is rotten. Fruit is essential for athletes and Armstrong has many athletic programs so there are many student athletes. For me as an athlete and all the athletes at Armstrong need lots of protein. Athletes mostly eat meat, salad, and fruits or at least I do. The galley provides excellent salads but the fruits and meats are poor. Like I said earlier I usually eat bananas for my nutrition and I rarely see them in the cafeteria. Fruits such as strawberries, watermelons, pineapples, apples, and oranges....
