My meal plan

Last week I moved into my dorm at UTC (University of Tennessee in Chattanooga).

At UTC, if you live on campus, you MUST have a meal plan. The cheapest plan is $525 a semester.

We have lots to choose from. Chik-fil-a, a pizza place, sushi, subway, and more. Yum! I can't wait to dig into that thurrr chicken!!!!!

The small fruit stand has apples, bananas, and oranges. ONE piece of fruit costs $1.09. Yes, ONE BANANA. ONE.

When I found this out I freaked out a little. If I can eat up to 22 bananas a day (on banana island, which I do a LOT during the winter), then that would be over 23 bucks just for one day. Ridiculous.

I got in contact with food services... but before I talked to them, my good friend steve (who got me into raw foods) talked to the head chef of UTC who works for aramark.

I met him when I first got here and he was SO nice. He basically told me that whenever i need food, I can go back behind the UTC kitchen into his HUGE walk-in fridge and pick out anything I want. He also told me that he can order me boxes of fruit.

I walked in the fridge. There isn't a lot of variety, but I can definitely get by. There were apples and oranges (they didnt look good). There were also honeydew and i think cantelope... but those wont be there too much longer. There are also veggies like cabbage, lettuce, and spinach... but if i do eat greens, i prefer them to be organic.

There are also boxes of bananas.

So....... I guess I will have to get by. If i get a box of apples, I will make applesauce. or my raw oatmeal (bananas and apples pureed in food processor... left a little chunky... sprinkle raisins on top... and dash of cinnamon if desired)

Last time I ate an orange at UTC, it burned the outside of my mouth. weird.

But i do somewhat trust the bananas. They look good. I guess I will doing a lot of time on banana island this year.

I can do this. If anyone has any suggestions, tips, or ideas, please let me know!

I am so glad i talked to food services.... i have a good deal now! I just need to play around with the variety somehow.....

Hey, I was searching for raw in college and I came upon your blog. I go to UTC also. I am not 100% raw but I eat high raw most of the time. I have never met another person who has even heard of raw foods. You should email me at I would love to hear about your raw foods.

Do you have a citrus juicer? Bananas blended with orange juice is what I live off of in the winter. It's yummy!!!! Throw in spinach and you meet your mineral needs.

I stumbled upon your blog (while searching for raw food info. I am an amateur climber and I totally understand how amazing and addicting it is) and have loved reading your posts.
Keep living your passion, sharing your thoughts, and spreading the truth.
You are an inspiration.
Best Wishes,
