10 Dewick Vegetarian Meals

Being a vegetarian in college is hard. With midterms, problem sets, and social events, it’s easy to let your healthy diet slip. For many, eating in college consists of ordering a greasy pepperoni pizza, grabbing a meatball sub from Hodge, or stuffing your face with chicken nuggets at late night. Usually, we pick whatever is fastest and will taste best when we give into stress eating. However, nutrition is incredibly important and should not be neglected in college. Luckily, Tufts has many vegetarian options available, especially at Dewick.
