Healthy College Diet?

Iíve been reading the Training & Nutrition forum for a while now trying to make an efficient pescetarian diet. Iím a 22-year-old college student in NYC who rides fixed gear or walks to work (about 11 miles to and fro), swims 5 or 6 times a week (2000-3000 yards) and rides fixed in my free time (5-10 miles, sometimes up to 30 or more). Since money is tight I have quite a minimal array of food in my house.

black, red and garbanzo beans (canned Goya not dried)
wheat bread
natural peanut butter
white rice
canned tuna
tahini (for home made hummus)
wheat flour
veggies (carrots (for fresh carrot juice) onion, garlic, tomato, peppers (from bell to habanero))
olive oil
fat free milk
eggs

Iím trying to eat as healthy as possibleÖ is there anything Iím missing or should remove?

I say as long as your're getting good grades, you should eat whatever you want, drink as much beer as you want, and sleep when you want (if you want). You can deal with all "real life" crap after you graduate. For now enjoy yourself..this is the best time to do it.

natural peanut butter, cheap too. Mix a little in with some lemon juice, coconut milk and curry paste.

"Healthy" Ramen Recipie for the College Student

prepare 1 brick ramen noodles. throw away the flavored MSG packet. Add 1 can drained tuna that was packed in water. Add enough black pepper and/or hot sauce to mask/enhance flavor of the noodles and fish. Stir. Eat.

For a gourmet flair or when trying to impress that special someone, use albacore tuna and serve on real (not paper) plates.

My mother always told me there is a time and place for everything, and it's called college.

Therefore, my "healthy" college student diet typically consisted of...

1. Eggs, toast and a small beer for breakfast.
2. Doritos and a large beer for lunch.
3. And, beer with a side of beer for dinner.

I like ramen without the "flavor packet" and with some cheap tomato sauce. Almost reminds me of spaghetti. Is chicken a good alternative to fish? I have been eating a lot of salmon and tuna, didn't remember about the mercury. No more fish for me!

A good way to get good fats while living on the all pasta diet (im there right now) is to eat a granola and hemp seed cereal, they taste pretty good and theyre damn good for yah. Lots of carbs and omega-3's.

Just read online that two servings a week of chunk light tuna (not albacore) are ok, and 1 serving of canned salmon is ok.

tofu's a cheap source of protien.
mushrooms contain micronutrients
flax seed oil is good for omega 3's
brown rice is way more nutritious than white. takes forever to cook though.
and although I never use it, I've got friends who swear by nutritional yeast. It's supposed to be a good source of protien and b vitamins.

A package of tofu (16oz ) costs a dollar or two depending on where you buy it.

Also, there's Asia World about 5 minutes north of Dallas, 15 minutes south of me. Big, smelly, cheap, and tasty.

Yeah, it has to be refrigerated. After opening, it keeps for about a week in a tray of water.
More info if you're interested. (wikipedia.org)

I usually dice my tofu and throw it into soups, chillies, currys, etc. If you buy some be sure to try making tofu scramble. It's crumbled tofu fried with potatoes, onion, and peppers, with garlic, black pepper, and a little turmeric (mostly for color). Looks like scrambled eggs, tastes fantastic. I'm not even vegetarian and it's my favorite breakfast.

I actually like brown rice better (plus it's better for you). Always buy short or medium grain brown rice though. Long grain puffs up too much and gets really dry. A simple and tasty recipe for brown rice is such:

1 1/2 cups Brown Rice
2 1/2 cups water or stock
I tablespoon butter or margarine
1 tsp salt (may need to be adjusted if you use stock)

preheat oven to 375. In an 8 X 8 glass baking dish pour the liquid over the rice and stir to combine. Then place a heavy duty aluminum sheet over the dish and bake for 1 hour. Then, when it's done, fluff the rice to separate it and serve. It does taste really good. But make sure you use short or medium grain!
