Do you ever find yourself craving a little something sweet after dinner? Or lunch? Or even just because? If you answered yes, know that you are certainly not alone! In honor of national dessert month, its time to celebrate and appreciate our sweet tooth. People talk about how “bad” or “forbidden” dessert is when the reality is, dessert can be your friend, not your enemy. Yes, eating a brownie sundae with hot fudge and whipped cream every day may not be the most nutritious habit, but once in a while? Go right ahead! Everything is good in moderation!

Food. We eat it everyday to keep ourselves alive and functioning. For most people however, food serves a much greater purpose. Meals serve as a gathering place for friends; recipes are a way to pass down traditions from generation to generation. Not to mention trying new dishes and foods is satisfying and good for the soul. While the dining hall has a lot of options, it can get boring eating at the same place multiple times a day for the whole year. So why not spice it up a bit, support UNH students and check out the upcoming Gourmet Dinner!
