The Liberal Arts cafe is one of the newest a-la-carte dining facilities offered at Towson University. This facility is a very quiet place and is located on the fourth floor of the new Liberal Arts building. Who knew this awesome place existed? I had no idea, until I did some research!
This place serves mostly grab and go options majority of those are sandwiches and salads. That is perfect for when you are in a hurry to get to class, and starving! They also offer breakfast sandwiches, paninis and melts, soup, baked goods, bottled beverages, and Starbucks coffee.
This is one of the facilities that is open for a good amount of time, so if you are on campus late than this is the perfect place for you! They are open Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. They have some great healthy options at this facility! For the purpose of this blog, I am going to tell you what your best options are.
Breakfast is available from open till 10:30 a.m. This is awesome because you can grab something if you accidentally forgot when you were rushing out the door in the morning! If you are craving a breakfast sandwich then you are in luck, because you can create your own. I suggest getting an egg and cheese sandwich on an english muffin. If you are feeling extra healthy ditch the cheese!
This is also the perfect time to start your day out the right way……with fruit! You can create your own delicious fruit and yogurt parfaits. Try to add a decent portion size of each ingredient! Now lets see what the Liberal Arts Cafe has to offer for lunch.
Lunch is served from 11 a.m till closing time. There is a delicious panini on the menu called the Veggie. This sandwich comes with roasted vegetables, jalapeno humus, and provolone cheese on artisan black olive bread. This is the perfect time to load up on your veggie count!
Another great panini that is offered is the Chicken Breast Panini. This one comes with chicken breast, roasted peppers, spinach, provolone cheese, pesto mayonnaise on rustic sour dough bread. If you want to be extra healthy ditch they mayonnaise and the sour dough bread, and opt for some oil and vinegar and wheat bread!
All the sandwiches come with a side, and you can choose between chips and fruit. You know what I’m going to say, choose the fruit!
There are a lot of delicious and healthy beverages to choose from for a nice snack or to hydrate. They have tazo tea, and naked juice. The tazo tea has been found to have less than one gram of carbohydrates and zero calories in almost all of the teas! For the naked juice, for the nutritional count it is 100% real juice and 0 trans fat! They both come in great flavors too.
The best drink you can have over everything is water! The number one key thing to being healthy is to try and stay hydrated. So remember that on a daily basis! Also try to stay away from the sodas and Gatorades because these kinds of drinks are filled with all kinds of sugar.
So remember next time that you are in the Liberal Arts building to head on up to the 4th floor and grab a healthy snack, or even make a meal out of it!
