Healthy Food Options Around Campus!

Eating good food can be difficult while in college. You no longer can rely on your family to cook great meals for dinner and you often are too busy doing school work to cook for yourself. But have no fear! Berkeley offers tons of delicious meal options on and around campus! If you are looking for healthy options, here are a few I think are pretty tasty!

1. Chick-O-Pea's
Where: 1926 Shattuck Avenue
What: Mediterranean Food (Everything is Vegetarian)
What to Order: The Mozzerella Pesto Burger! It was super yummy with fresh mozzarella cheese, pesto sauce, tomatoes and fresh basil! They also have tons of fresh salad ingredients and falafel. This is great place to go with friends because you order at the counter and then sit down (no worries about splitting checks or figuring out how to split the bill!). Also, they are super eco-friendly so all of their disposable products such as takeout containers are 100% biodegradable and compostable!

2. Saturn Cafe
Where: 2175 Allston Way
What: Vegetarian (with lots of vegan options) DINER FOOD!
What to Order: ANYTHING! Everything that I have tried has been super tasty here. Especially the french fries! Great for a late night study break. Really big portions and lots of vegan options as well.

3. Intermezzo
Where: 2442 Telegraph Avenue
What: Great Soup/Salad/Sandwich Place!
What to Order: ANYTHING! I like the Veggie Delight salad with poppy seed dressing! The portions here are HUGE. Each salad is literally enough for two people. Lots of toppings as well! The poppy seed dressing is my favorite but the herbal vinaigrette is good too. A lot of people like the sandwiches as well.

Hope this helps! If you are ever bored of cooking for yourself or sick of eating at crossroads make sure to check out these healthy (and yummy) alternatives around campus!!!
