Villanova Dining Services proudly presents VEG, a Nutrition Program designed for everyone!
Too often we hear about fad diets and wonder why they don't work!
Every body is different and has different nutritional needs!
VEG stands for "Villanova Eats Great." Villanova Dining Services aspires to bring you nutritionally-dense cuisine on a daily basis, in each of our 18 dining locations across campus. We designed a Nutrition Program that anyone can follow to make more mindful choices. Increasing your nutrition is as simple as making more plant-based dietary decisions. We've introduced concepts that don't require calorie or carb counting, rather focusing on eating whole foods that are less processed and more wholesome.
Here are our four simple concepts to follow to naturally increase your nutrition:
