My new favorite diet: FREE
Tragically, I missed another free coffee hour at my college today. Fortunately, they bought more donuts than they needed for the 8:45-11 coffee "hour". The extras were hidden in two separate rooms, away from the main stream of people-traffic, and though a sign was placed clearly on the door, the donuts lasted for several extra hours. I estimate my pumpkin spice donut consumption at about 6. I had one as late as 4pm.
I packed a lunch today, but I won't have to eat it. Tonight the interfaith center at my university serves free pasta and salad.
The diet: Healthy? no. Economical? yes. And for a university student, economics almost always answers the food question.
