Throughout this series, I’m exploring a new diet every post to learn more about having dietary restrictions at ND. I also have my own dietary restrictions,
specifically vegetarianism, which means there will be no meat or fish any days. This also means my diet will overlap with many religious diets because I will not be eating pork or shellfish on any day.
Luckily, our dining halls are incredibly accommodating. There is a labeling system in place to alert eaters of potential allergens and a special diets website that lists foods that apply. We even have a full-time registered dietitian that can meet with students one-on-one to talk about options and help with meal planning. But most of all, we have tons of delicious food that fits every diet.common these restrictions are, it can still be tricky to plan meals.
