I started an egg diet. Eating mostly eggs. Look it up if your interested. It is cheap and very inexpesive. Here is how it goes for me. I eat and orange in the morning before I work out and then after my work out I eat like three eggs. Then I try to eat three hours from then. I then proceed to eat something like grilled chicken with some green beans. The best way I found to cook grilled chicken is to first buy the grilled chicken that has already been cooked. Then set the oven for 375 degrees. Then take some foil and put the grilled chicken in it and then lay some green beans on top of it and then add a little season salt and pepper. Then throw it in and take it out 15 minutes later. If you do it this way it is so juicy and yummy.
I did this two summers ago on food stamps. I also ate other stuff too. Like bannans and other non-processed food.
I totally have this problem. It either feels like I don't eat at all or I get too many calories from eating next-to-nothing. Maybe it's the stress. *shrug* I'm still working on it too, so if I figure anything out I'll let you know.

What I usually do for added healthful calories to my day is buy a jar of peanut butter (not expensive) and have it on whole wheat bread with bananas which the bananas are usually the cheapest fruit but sometimes I even get apples or pears to put on as well.

An egg and cheese sandwich is pretty reasonably prices. You could even just do an egg sandwich on wheat bread. That is one of my favorites. You could also make a tuna melt? I like to buy the majority of my purchases on sale so I check the sales papers every week and always look for coupons!

I didn't see a topic about this posted before, so I figured I would start one. As a broke college student I find it quite hard to eat as much as I'm supposed to, much less something healthy! Is it more important to eat healthily or to meet my recommended calorie amount (which I seem only able to do with unhealthy/fast food)? Any recommendations on cheap, healthy meals?
