What could be better than enjoying a tasty, nutritious Krishna Lunch with your friends at the Plaza on a crisp, sunny fall day?
This fall Krishna Lunch will be served Monday through Friday, every day classes are scheduled at UF, from 11:00 AM through 1:30 PM. You can also enjoy Krishna Lunch at the Krishna House from noon through 3:00 PM on those days.
Specifically, Krishna Lunch will be served every day this semester except:
Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 1)
Homecoming (Friday, Oct. 17)
Veterans Day (Tuesday, Nov. 11)
Krishna Lunch will be served on the Plaza during Reading Days (Dec. 11&12) and at Krishna House only December 15-17.
If you haven't already, please indicate your preference between our regular Monday menu (Spinach, dal soup, and rice) and our experimental alternative Monday menu (kitchari, chutney and crisps). Voting closes May 2. Thanks.
Whether they are interested in improving their health, saving the environment or showing compassion, this year, on April 21-27, people across America are taking a pledge to refrain from eating meat for a week.
Krishna Lunch will support this national effort by offering a free extra Krishna Lunch coupon with each donation for a five-pack (two for a ten-pack) to anyone who takes the VegPledge.
Just sign up here ....
.... and when you next come to the Krishna Lunch table, tell us you signed up and how you answered the question about "why". We'll be glad to give you the extra coupon(s) to help you keep your pledge or to invite a friend to find out how tasty and satisfying a meat-free meal can be.
As always, thanks for coming to Krishna Lunch.
The voters have spoken! Of the five weekly menus Krishna Lunch dishes out, our online poll indicates the Monday menu is the least favorite, so we’re going to temporarily replace the current Monday menu with an alternative and invite every friend of Krishna Lunch to choose between the two.
The current Monday menu includes rice, lentil soup, spinach and tofu veggie. The alternative Monday menu will feature spinach kichari, a balanced and nourishing main course known as “Indian comfort food.” Kitchari is a tasty and hearty dish, easy to digest, not too spicy, modest in calories and complete in carbs, protein, fiber and vitamins. Kitchari is such an excellent food we feel it’s worth a try at Krishna Lunch.
Our kitchari will be served with tomato chutney to add spice and potato crisps to add texture. The rest of the menu will the same, including dressed salad, halava dessert and herbal tea or lemonade.
On March 22, 2014 1,200 students at UF’s Festival of Colors lunched on kitchari, many for the first time. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Still, many people love our current Monday menu, so you please help us decide. Try Kitchari on two upcoming Mondays, compare it to the Monday lunches we’ve been serving, and tell us which you prefer by entering your vote in the poll on the homepage of this site.
Monday, April 7: Kitchari (online poll voting begins at Krishnalunch.com)
Monday, April 14: Kitchari (online poll voting continues)
Monday, April 21 and onward: Whatever the voters decide
Your friends at Krishna Lunch
Kirtan, an ancient, simple and increasingly popular method of group meditation, is so pleasurable that once you get rolling, you don't want to stop. Each semester, Krishna House hosts a twelve-hour kirtan day for everyone, from those who have never tried it to those who can't get enough.
The Spring 2014 twelve-hour kirtan will be held on March 15, 9 AM to 9 PM, at Krishna House. You're invited to come for the whole event or to drop by any time for a kirtan experience. The practice is simple to learn. Krishna Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner will be served throughout the day. Dress is casual and the doors are open all day.
Krishna House is located one block west of Krispy Kreme at 214 NW 14th Street in Gainesville. Call 352 222 2886 for more details.
