An All-You-Can-Eat Alternative
WINNER: THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS, DENTON
Those wishing to eat more traditionally have the five other campus dining halls to choose from. Some Mean Greens selections are portion-controlled versions of what is served in the other dining halls, but the emphasis is on grilled meats, sushi, tofu, seafood and organic produce selections. The selection at Mean Greens also serves an educational purpose by showing students what reasonable portions of entrees look like and what foods are safe and healthy to consume in more quantity (primarily fresh fruits and vegetables). It also extends the range of food choices available on campus to vegetarian and ethnic selections not usually featured before.
