Hello all,

I can’t believe this semester is almost over! We have had some jovial events to wrap up the year which were a much needed study break from the library.

Monday, December 6, we joined UPB in our annual Gingerbread House event. We had bright pink and green icing this year and lots of fun candy. The students did a great job decorating, come check out their creativity on display in the OR!

We had a couple of special meals being served in the OR this week. The Jewish Student Association of Loyola had a Hanukkuh spread on The Vegetarian Station Tuesday night. The menu included items such as latkes and cheese blints with blueberry sauce. Also, a traditional Christmas lunch was served on Wednesday which continues to put everyone in the holiday spirit!

Coming up this Sunday, December 12, Mission and Ministry, Rez-Life and Dining Services have our Mass and Pancakes event to kick off finals week. It begins at 9p.m. in the St. Charles Room. There will be Mass, free food, an ugly sweater contest, free t-shirts, an IPAD giveaway and free postcards for friends, family, and troops stationed overseas. Come join us!

Good luck on finals and have a blessed holiday break!

Dining Services :)

The Market has been having some awesome promotions lately. For all those SmartWater lovers who need a little extra kick we have Vitamin Water paired with a Special K Protein Bar for only $2.99. We will be running these limited time offers for about a two week span so get to The Market while supplies last!

Oktoberfest is finally among us! Chef Beckmann has made the long trek to Loyola and is preparing to make an unforgettable German cuisine. Many do not realize that quite a few of the recipes they eat today had their start in Germany! That’s right, many of your American favorites were actually German Food. So come get your pork schnitzels and sauerkraut and let’s chow down. The Orleans Room is where it will take place. This Wednesday, October 5 from 11:30a-2:30p is when we expect you there. It will be a dining experience you won’t forget.

Can anyone believe that it is almost May?  I sure can’t…. I have no idea where my weeks / months have gone.  Dining has had a wonderful year planning fun filled events with the students.

We have partnered with Res. Life and Mission and Ministry for our final event of the year; a tradition on Loyola’s campus we like to call Mass and Pancakes.

This year Mass and Pancakes will be on Sunday, May 2nd.  Mass will be in the St. Charles Room  at 9pm and we will host breakfast, as well as a Cinco de Mayo inspired party in the OR, directly after mass.

Expect to see a LIVE Mariachi band, pinatas, games and lots of fun.  Two students will WIN Southwest Airline vouchers valued at $250.00.

Get ready for Mardi Gras… hydration and energy NEEDED!

The Market is selling Guayaki Yerba Mate for ONLY $2.29 as well as a new product, Vita Coco, coconut water for $2.99.  Both products are organic and all natural and offer amazing health benefits.
Mate is 100% organic energy fueled by vitamins and nutrients with higher antioxidant levels than even green tea.  While yerba mate has been used as a base for herbal medicines in South America for centuries, the plant’s benefits and therapeutic properties have recently been verified by a number of scientific studies. The chemical components of yerba mate are similar to those found in green tea; however, yerba mate is much more nutritious.

Each infusion of yerba mate contains:
• Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex
• Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium,
Phosphorus, Zinc
• Additional Compounds: Carotene, Fatty Acids, Chlorophyll, Flavonols,
Polyphenols, Inositol, Trace Minerals, Antioxidants, Tannins, Pantothenic Acid and 15 Amino Acids.

Vita Coco – Coconut Water
Did you know that coconut water has 15 times more potassium than that found in sport drinks? It’s also naturally loaded with the five key electrolytes: potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, sodium and calcium. It’s what you need to stay hydrated. On a diet? No sweat! Vita Coco is also fat and cholesterol free.
Sure, you may not be a marathon runner, a football player or Tour de France winner, but your every day life is hectic enough—you should be hydrated while you live it. Go ahead, get hydrated and remember that life is a sport!

Here is a list of other things coconut water can do for you:
Helps keep the body cool and at the proper temperature.
Translation: Now when you get noticed it’s not ’cause you’re sweaty and gross.
Promotes weight loss.
Translation: You still have to cut back on the fried chicken and hit the treadmill, but we’re there for you to enhance your diet program.
Helps carry nutrients and oxygen to cells and boosts poor circulation.
Translation: See, everyone needs a boost from time to time.
Regulates the function of the intestine, helping promote smoother skin.
Translation: Doing something good for your insides can make you prettier outside! But you still need to wash your face properly, exfoliate and moisturize (don’t forget the SPF).
Helps replenish your body’s fluids after exercising.
Translation:Your body needs plenty of fluids after the gym. Fluids free of barley and hops. Go figure.
Helps detoxify your body and boost your immune system.
Translation: Keeps your immune system tough. Grr. And, yells at viruses to back off. “Back off viruses!”
Helps ease stomach pains.
Translation: Calms your stomach, unlike your in-laws’ chili cook-off.

Come check out these new items today in The Market!
