Katye Griswold '13: 'Quinoa, quin-what?'
Griswold's perspective on food drastically changed after reading a diet book written by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin during her sophomore year. She cooks a lot more, buys fresh ingredients, avoids processed foods, and is a vegetarian on most days. But being a foodie in college is hard, so she relies on sales and specials to make the food she wants affordable. "My diet is largely determined by manager's specials at QFC," she admitted. "I'm cheap--I don’t like to spend money--but I like healthy food, so instead of going for the cheap stuff I go for the cheap quality food."
