This sites has some good substitutes that I know even your non-diet roommates(assuming you have any) would like including a funfetti cake dip!

I work and go to grad school at night, so I feel you on those long days. I have a microwave in the office, so I make and freeze lots of individual portions of chili and stews that i can grab and reheat later. I also make lots of salads (not big leafy ones- grains, beans, meats). Pre-portioning is your best friend. If you don't have a fridge or a way to reheat, basic sandwiches work well- cold cuts, avocado or cheese, pile on other veggies.

In a pinch- Subway is my best friend. There's one near school so when I've forgotten to pack dinner I go there- 6", low fat, every veggie they have.

Currently working and going to grad school. Given my stress level and time constraints (and with my doctor's blessing), I'm not trying to lose a lot of weight, just be healthy and not gain. Once I get my degree I'll pick things up again.

Well i live at home, so I do have access to microwave, stove, blenders, fridge, freezer.. All of that. But sometimes I think it would be easier to live in campus because I go to school from 9am to 8pm so I have to pack my entire days food.

What equipment do you have? A mini-fridge and microwave or a full kitchen? You can do a lot of steaming in a microwave (or rice cooker if you have/are allowed).
