Most of us anyway!
One of our alumnae loves blogging. She’s written a post recently describing her experiences not being able to eat all the glutinous things that she formerly could. Here’s an excerpt:
So my cooking specialties have totally changed. I mastered the art of making French Macarons for Christmas and truffles for Valentine’s Day for coworker gifts. My standard dinner is a sauteed green with a legume or some non-glutinous grain. Given the abundance of root vegetables I receive in the winter from the twice-monthly produce delivery service I signed up for in December, I’ve added roasted parsnips and kohlrabi, mashed sweet potatoes, and winter squash soup to my culinary repertoire. My blender is my best friend at breakfast, and I’ll usually do some gluten-free hot cereal with fruit and nuts or an almond milk fruit smoothie with a protein powder (not eating meat regularly and not being able to consume vegetarian protein standards such as tofu, tempeh, and seitan reduces my available protein sources. So I’ll use a non-whey, soy-free, and gluten-free protein powder as a smoothie supplement. I still having trouble trying to get complete protein, all 9 amino acids, on a daily basis.)
It’s been a journey with its fair share of bumps along the way, and I still don’t feel as good as I think I can feel. But I think every day I’m getting a little bit closer to that esoteric concept of “wellness” that all the crazy hippies preach and that I’m starting, strangely enough, to believe.
For all of those semi-unlucky souls who were without a date on this day of romance, the co-op prepared a veritable feast of fine French and Far Eastern food in consolation of that fact. I could describe how delicious it was, but it would be best if I let pictures do the talking. On the menu was:
- Chicken Cordon Bleu
- Miso Soup
- Bok Choi
- Frosted heart-shaped cookies
The jury’s in, and they’ve decided what the wittiest, funniest, co-oppiest sayings were from the fall semester of 2012. Here they are:
We’ve been talking to Brown about an inter-co-op team for Broomball, the sport that “makes your Princeton experience complete”. If you’d like to change your sedentary ways, this is a fun way to do it without any of the pain of the gym!
Also, there might be an X-treme dodgeball inter-co-op team.
