09-03-2002, 11:40 AM
my stock pile of a dozen bananas doesn't hold up too well just sitting on the counter, they seem to last a week at best. i also have peanut butter and jelly and tuna (makes the room smell). any other food that is good and easy to make/store i should get?

100% oatmeal, microwaved - easy, tasty, versatile, quick, cheap - even more so than my ex girlfriend

whey protein powder (just add water)

you can also usually rent mini-fridges for dorm rooms... then you can store your flaxseed oil, fruits, etc, etc.

In my dorm I got in my fridge I got 8 chicken breasts, 2 lean beef patties, skim milk, cottage cheese, 5 lbs bag of apples, diet coke, water, brocolli, mustard, deli mustard, mayo low fat, and some natty PB. Also had a tub of protein powder and a box of 42 MRP's, brown rice, oatmeal, tuna, rasiens, wheat sub rolls, and wheat bread oh yeah and some protein bars.

Thats some pretty good food i guess it all keeps. I cook all the meat at home and bring it back, in a cooler of course. just have a microwave and frdge and your set.

Dam I loved dorm cafeteria.
A buffet at every meal.
Really allowed me to gain weight eating like crazy.
It was nice to be able to just junk crapy tasting food without feeling the guilt like junking food at home.

Last year when I was at a different school, I kept most of what you said in my dorm fridge/closet and boy did my room smell like tuna and sardines... lol, you get used to it though :) I ate two meals of the day in the cafeteria and ate as much as I could while keeping my general macronutrient ratio's in mind...

what about for breakfast? like those ceral bars or anything quick on the go for the morning? thanx...

Nutragrain bars are nice and easy but don't really have enough carbs for my bulking diet... they might be fine for you though, I don't know what your doing diet wise specifically right now... They also don't have hardly any worthwhile protein in them so you might want to just quick mix a shake with like 25-30 grams of protein and take that with the cereal bar..... My problem is that I'm not hungry in the morning and don't feel like preparing food to eat... I read that a glass or two of ice cold water before breakfast will help your system get going and make eating easier...
