As the school year progresses, students may find themselves falling victim to the cyclical patterns of food the UC serves. Instead of accepting this trend for what it is, some students choose to spice up their everyday meals. By choosing creativity and utilizing the food provided from each station, one can find that it isn’t too tricky to craft meals that better satisfy you and your needs.
When creating these hodge-podge meals myself, I found it entertaining to see how I could effectively manipulate what the UC was serving over the course of those days. Personally, this experience seemed to open a door of possibility for when I come to dine in the cafeteria and nothing seems particularly appetizing. Although it can be a hassle, and admittedly time-consuming, by only taking certain items from multiple places around the UC I seemed to ultimately appreciate the meal more.
