I just thought that I would give a little reply---I was diagnosed at 17, and have succesfully survived living in a dorm and univeristy...the whole time surviving on a gluten free diet! The dining hall chefs are usually wonderful cooks who will sit down with students who have special dietary needs and make sure that they are eating. Coooking on your own provides you with a lot more choice and you learn to be creative with the basics of food---and you definitely learn to eat well. There are some "quick meals" i.e stick whatever from the package in the microwave and cook em up if you look hard enough in the grocery store. As well another thing that has helped me survive is cooking as much as I can when i am at home...i.e chicken, hamburger, spaghetti sauce, etc and freezing it and bringing it to school with me...it is so much easier to microwave that stuff and eat it---and I eat alot better cause it is like having a micrwave dinner...very little effort required (except when you cook it all at home!). I have only cheated on the diet once in my whole school career....st.patricks day of my first year...at some point i decided that green beer was the coolest thing ever and had a drink of it (i learned that one the hard way!)..." lol Tell your daughter best of luck and i would love to post some some recipes that i have found that are "easy college friendly ideas!"
