Las Veggies – Week 4

Hello, HealthTrip Travelers!


Dried fruits are tasty and travel well no matter if you are headed to the office, the gym, or taking off on vacation. These sweet treats can dress up any salad or cereal. Or toss them into muffin, pancake, or cookie recipes to boost the fiber content. Or simply enjoy them solo as a snack.

Freebie Fridays

Join BGSU Dining for tasty samples of different recipes during Freebie Fridays!  Stop by Bowen-Thompson Student Union each Friday in April between 12:00 – 1:00 PM on the first floor across from the information desk to check out the free goodies and pick up a new recipe idea or two.
