Also, if you make your nutrition tracker public, we can give you suggestions on how to meet your requirements. People are usually really nice and helpful about it because we want you to be successful.

A cheap calorie dense snack is peanut butter on a whole wheat tortilla (or whole wheat bread). Adding milk to meals might also be a good start, or perhaps yogurt.

can you be more specific?
What "intake requirements" are you not meeting?

Is it protein, fat, carbohydrates, or what?

Perhaps a little more detail, and someone could give you some great ideas.

Do you have the ability to plant a little garden of lettuce and other greens, radishes, and other items that don't take a lot of room? Even window boxes or pots on the balcony would be helpful to add to your menu at lower cost. While not an immediate solution, it would be great to have through the growing year.

I eat cereal for snacks...Cheerios with skim milk 180 calories for a cup of each. I buy the no name brand and it only cost a couple of dollars a box. Apples or bananas are also inexpensive and are great for snacking. The other thing you might want to do is add olive oil to one of you meals. If your not making your calorie intake you probably are not meeting your healthy fat levels as well.

Nuts are also a good nutrition choice...A little more expensive and higher in calories but packed with good nutrients and protein.
