for quick meals I like to cook something big on the weekend so I'll have something to use all week. A few of my faves:
Chili: good sprinkled w/ a little cheese, or over nachos, or over oven french fries
Greek Salad: good on its own, add a little grilled chicken or shrimp for a heartier meal, or in a pita for lunch
Black bean and corn salad: good on its own, over nachos or in tortilla, add chicken or ground beef/turkey to make it heartier
Pizza: I make my own dough and use my own toppings, a 9x12 pizza will last me 4 - 5 days if I eat it 1 meal a day :)
Meatballs: I make them and fry them in a pan then add them to sandwiches, pasta, or eat them alone as the meat portion of a meal, I don't mix them with sauce and I make them pretty plain (breadcrumbs, garlic, season salt) so they will blend well with whatever I mix them with :) Oh and I use ground turkey ;)

SparkPeople has some great recipes listed, but I also suggest picking up a copy of Cooking Light. My FAVE magazine. The newest issue has some awesome recipes too- I just made the lemon-maple glazed salmon on the cover and it was YUMMY! You can also get recipes on their site, cookinglight.com

We just came up with this one and it's a HUGE hit at my house:

make a salad (no dressing, but whatever else you like on it)
grill up some nice healthy chicken breast in little olive oil and parsley
throw it all into a tortilla with some salsa and low fat or fat free cheese.

So good, so quick, and you can eat it with one hand while you study. Oh, and it's cheap.

Ok so this summer i'm taking summer school for five weeks. The dining hall is going to be closed during the summer, so my options for eating are cooking, going to the cafe on campus, ordering out or going to a restaurant. I'm definitely going to be cooking cause it's way healthier and cheaper. So I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestion as to what I can make. Health recipes that are good. I have access to a stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator with a freezer.
