Help Yourself to Healthy
To help you make healthy food choices at Michigan, nutrition information is displayed for most dishes served in our residential dining halls. Menus displayed near each serving area provide the serving size; calories, fat, carbs, protein and sugar; and any common allergens (eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, seeds, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, wheat, barley, rye and oats). Use the icons to quickly identify vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, halal or MHealthy dishes.
In addition to the many U-M and Housing services listed above, there are a variety of resources on the Internet you may find helpful. We suggest that you review these recommended sites as part of your planning for a healthy life style:
- A free diet journal at fitday.com allows you to track your food intake, exercise, goals and weight loss.
- Choosemyplate.gov is a website that offers many tools such as, healthy eating tips, personalized meal plans and diet analysis.
To learn more about any of these services or to schedule a meeting, email our Registered Dietitian.
If you have a craving for sweets, have a small portion and then an apple right afterwards. The taste of the apple will reduce cravings for second helpings and further snacking.

A great post-workout snack is an apple with peanut butter for carbohydrates and protein. Try crunchy or smooth!
