There was a time when healthy food meant counting calories, omitting carbs, giving up sugar and going fat-free—in other words, it was all about deprivation.

We have kitchens without backflow preventers or potable water to wash greens, so we set up a salad shaker bar with precut, prewashed produce. The cups are filled with lettuce, and students can add their choice of toppings and dressings in the top and shake it up. It’s really cool to see them excited about vegetables.
