A well balanced diet is important in feeling your best. The dining room and Emporium have lots of yummy snacks and meals that are good for you. Try the yogurt and granola cups, fresh veggies, or a garden or chef’s salad. Or have the cooks make you a fresh, grilled deli sandwich. Be sure to get whole wheat and hold the mayo.
