This blog was written by Laura Neubauer ('13), and was based on an interview with Franca Alphin conducted  in the spring of 2012.

When you think of replenishment beverages after working out, what comes to mind? I tend to think of sports drinks such as Gatorade or Powerade, or those “mix it yourself” drinks such as Endurox. I was surprised to learn, though, that it is chocolate milk that provides your body exactly what it needs post-workout.

Many folks around the nation have embraced the “Eat Local” movement, in regard to meat, produce and dairy, but not much attention has been paid to fish. EAT LOCAL FISH DAY on Tuesday, 9/25 will introduce you to sustainable seafood.

Please join Duke Dining and Bon Appetit Management Company at the Marketplace on East Campus on Tuesday, 9/25 at lunchtime, for the Eat Local Fish Challenge. Helpful apps, recipes and extensive research will be available to all and sustainable fish populations will be highlighted.

 

Duke Dining is committed to fulfilling many goals, one of which is providing access to nutritional data. To help achieve that goal Duke Dining has been selected as one of a few universities to pilot a nutrition program at Marketplace and the West Union. Please bear with us as with any new program there are a few bugs to be worked out and please let us know how the new nutrition program is working for you.
