Eating healthy is tough, not to mention expensive. Personally, I try my best to eat healthy, but when I have to choose between chicken tenders or a salad, the decision is pretty easy. (chicken tenders, obvi). Eating healthy, however, does not have to be boring. From decorative chicken salads to acai bowls, eating healthy can taste (and look) good. Here are 5 places to eat on and near campus when you’re thinking about a third cheat day.
