Well, I think we can guess who is going to win PETA2’s “Most Vegetarian-Friendly Campus” this year. The University of North Texas isn’t simply offering vegan options. To answer the growing demand for healthful plant based foods, they opened up a vegan dining hall!
The dining hall is called “Mean Greens” and seeks to serve up delicious plant based foods featuring beans, nuts, seeds and leafy greens. Some colleges have the same few vegan options each day (standards like veggie burgers or some other fast food veg option) but Mean Greens wants to keep things interesting by changing up the menu often.
The Mean Greens page on the university website says, “Vegan dining is not just for vegans but for all who seek to eat a balanced diet that offers a host of health benefits. In addition to tasting good and being good for you; vegan dining is sustainable and helps to reduce our carbon footprint which is good for the earth.”
Student response to Mean Greens has been great so far. Vegans and omnivores alike are enjoying the healthier meals. What are some items on the menu? Check out the image to your left and see some of their offerings for today. Or click here like I did and drool over their online menus.
Kind of makes you want to go back to college, doesn’t it?
