Bon Appétit at George Fox University is fighting food waste and hunger by recovering surplus perishable food from our campus that would otherwise go to waste and donating it to people in need through Bruin Community Pantry at George Fox.
Intuitive Eating: The Non-Diet Approach to Wellness
A non-diet approach to wellness using the mind-body connection to listen and respond to your body’s needs.
CHIMICHURRI CHICKEN WITH APPLE CIDER VINAIGRETTE SPINACH SALAD
Are you cooking to meet a range of dietary needs in your household? Try this simple salad that includes plenty of leafy greens and lean protein with a punch of flavor from quick homemade chimichurri – all “approved” on many popular diets.
SWEET POTATO AND KALE MACARONI AND “CHEESE”
Nutritional yeast is a unique protein-rich ingredient that lends the cheesy flavor to this modern take on macaroni and cheese. Adding sweet potatoes and kale boost the fiber and antioxidant content making this a hearty vegetarian entrée or side dish at your holiday table.
When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
Good nutrition is more than just the numbers.
Healthy eating patterns are a result of skills and strategies for managing all types of food…despite the numbers. Knowing the nutritional values of some basic foods can help you learn which foods provide too much or too little of the nutrients that concern you. Bon Appétit has compiled this guide of common nutritional values for many of the basic offerings you will find in our cafés. The numbers here are based on standard nutrient values for these types of foods.
