I'm a vegetarian so my stuff may be a little different, but I hope it helps :)
The things I go through the fastest:
Avocados
Cucumbers
Bananas
Brown Rice
Whole grain bread
Instant Oatmeal
Hummus (cheap to make yourself if you have a food processor)
Also, some ethnic foods are cheap (and super healthy) to make once you get the spices.

I usually buy chicken breast, tuna, and ground turkey/beef. You can make a lot of different meals with these items. I look up several different recipes using each of these items and buy what is needed to make them. I also keep whole wheat bread, eggs, cereal, milk, fruits, veggies and other staples on hand. In any case, seasoning is the key!! LOL

Some good cheap and healthy foods--black beans, bananas, tomatoes, whole grain bread, avocados, couscous, almond milk. Eating healthy can sometimes seem more expensive but there's ways to stretch your money. Eating out less often saves you money that you can spend on groceries and such too =) My roommate and I try to only have healthy food in our room--luckily we do have a little kitchenette so we're able to cook and such and we're not on the meal plan so that helps as well I believe as we're making all our own food choices and don't have the all-you-can-eat temptation.

I try to keep things like pasta and oatmeal all the time in my house cheap and if prepared right healthy. I personly try to do alot of my own cooking which can be hard after cooking for 10+ hours a day for work. I add apples and cinnamon to my oatmeal and pasta what ever is fresh and cheap. I try to stay away from sauting in fat as well. I hope this helps you out.

As we all know, college students can be very poor at times! Personally, my $$ flow isn't always consistent, so I can't always get the best quality food.

What are your grocery store staples when you're on a budget? How do you make your dollar stretch as far as it can go?
