Guidelines for Submitting Recipes

Campus Wellbeing Services welcomes recipe submissions from faculty, staff, and students. Please follow these guidelines when submitting recipes.

Originality

All recipes must be original (i.e., not from published cookbooks, magazines, or websites). CWS cannot legally post recipes from commercial entities. Recipes from the above sources may be accepted if they have been significantly altered (e.g., a much healthier version of a classic cookbook recipe or a gluten free version of a recipe from a magazine).

Healthfulness

The purpose of the CWS Recipe Box is to promote and support healthy eating. CWS prefers recipes that follow the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans. CWS will consider the following when deciding whether to post a recipe:

  • Is the recipe low in saturated and trans fats?
  • Does the recipe focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and proteins, and low fat dairy products?
  • Is the recipe relatively low in sugar?

Please note CWS will not post any recipes for alcoholic beverages.

Adaptation

CWS may wish to modify some recipes to enhance their healthfulness. In these cases, CWS will contact the person who submitted the recipe and ask for permission to post the adapted recipe.

Diversity

CWS encourages recipe submissions that reflect different cultures and dietary needs.

Credit

CWS will publish the name, department, and/or major of people whose recipes are posted. Please contact us directly if you do not wish to have this information posted.

Compensation

All recipe submissions are voluntary contributions—CWS does not pay for any recipes.

To Submit a Recipe

Please send an electronic version of the recipe along with your name, department, major (if you are a student), and email address to wellbeing@illinois.edu.
