I will be resuming competitive training again very soon- 16 hours per week. Unfortunately, practice ends when meal hall closes, so I will miss dinner. Meal hall is mostly junk anyway, and with greater access to appliances now, I can avoid it more often than I was previously able. Good riddance! This means I need to be able to cook healthy, relatively quick, affordable meals and snacks. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack ideas are welcome. I have access to a stove, microwave, mini-fridge, freezer, panini press, as well as potentially a toaster oven, crock pot, and hot plate. I'm not a fussy eater, but I'm allergic to tuna, peanuts, and all other nuts. I also avoid meat when possible, but am open to fish and poultry in particular. Does anyone have any ideas? I've thought of eggs, and baby carrots and hummus- but a girl can't live on that alone! I'm on an incredibly tight budget financially (I'm talkin' budgeted to the nearest cent), as well as being slim on time. Although I recognize that this is a topic on which one must tread lightly, I've been afflicted by a very common university student ailment: the dreaded FRESHMAN FIFTEEN. It's a real thing, guys- I blame finals! I've done some research, but does anyone have any tips on how to effectively manage becoming more physically fit in terms of diet/nutritional intake while still having enough energy to perform athletically?
