Made in Peirce: Health Plate


If you’re like me, you want to eke the maximum amount of Bobby-Flay-level flavor out of your Peirce dinner without sacrificing nutrition.

“But how am I supposed to do that?”, you moan ghoulishly, staggering out of the servery with your greasy paws clamped around a napkinful of mac-and-cheese sandwiches.

Don’t worry, friends. I, your health and fitness guru, am here to save the day with HealthPlate™. (Not to brag, but as of press time, I’ve completed slightly over 1 crunch. And not to digress further, but I think there’s a classic comedy joke to be made here about crunches versus Crunch Bars that I’d be remiss not to note.)

How many times has this happened to you: You go to Peirce, famished, but simply don’t have the arm capacity to shuttle the disgusting quantity of food you want, resulting in needing to go back at least two rounds? Or even worse — you arrive only to find an enormous line at Fusion? And let’s not even START on Kung Pao chicken nights! Who has time for that?! Not you, that’s for sure! Well, here’s the solution to all your problems: make a golem in Peirce! Most people are going to tell you that you need a special type of clay, or purity of purpose or something, but honestly, Peirce ingredients and a combination of hunger and laziness can get you pretty far.

Think outside the servery. via

This post was co-authored by Gracie Potter ’17 and Molly Narkis ’17.

As (ex?) Taco Bell addicts, both Molly and I were enormously excited for Taco Tuesday in Peirce. After meeting on New Side, we practically skipped to the servery, anxious to get our ground-beef-n-cheese on. We picked two of our most favoritest Taco Bell menu items to recreate using the plethora of Tex-Mex-esque ingredients available to us: The Cheesy Gordita Crunch and the Crunchwrap Supreme (or, as Ally Schmalling ’14 affectionally called it, the “Food Frisbee”).

Made in Peirce: Making the Most of Your Soft-Serve Experience
