I'm starting my freshman year in just over three weeks, and I am gonna need MAJOR help in the cooking department. I'm either going to be cooking all my own food, or most of my own food, and my only regularly accessible kitchen is the one the entire dorm shares. I have to supply my own utensils, which isn't a problem, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for cheap, easy to prepare meals?

I'm thinking things like stir fry veggies and meat, taco dishes, etc. Stuff I can make in 15 minutes. At this point, I'm strictly gluten-free, MSG-free, aspartame-free, and trying to limit grains and sugar (fruits, etc.) due to yeast. Any thoughts?

How about getting a small George Foreman Grill. I have a small one that will cook 2 burgers or 2 chicken breasts. You could make a burger or grilled chicken and have a salad. It takes less than 10 min. to cook meat on it. It's very easy.

You might want to use the google search button on the top right hand corner of your screen and do a search for budget meals, cheap meals, etc. We've had a few threads on that recently which might give you some good ideas.

If you have a crock pot, that will be useful, too, to make something very simple and easy.

I've asked about a Crock Pot, and my RA is finding out for me. I don't think Foreman grills are allowed period because they have an open burner. I might be allowed to bring one and store it.

Can you use a griddle? What about a quesodilla maker? You can make all sorts of things on it super quick :)

The key to all this is: If you are going to go to the trouble of going down to the kitchen and cook - make extra. You can microwave in your room tomorrow.

There's not an "open burner" on the George Foreman grills. I would liken it to heating elements such as an electric frying pan but then I don't know if that would be allowed either.

There should also be some sort of medical exemption for you I would imagine. You may have to have some paperwork filled out by your doctor, but something should be done to accommodate your medical condition. Having to share a kitchen with the whole dorm or floor is, in my opinion, a health hazard, especially for cross contamination.

Here's a recipe I do all the time ... a can of mashed beans, a beaten egg, bit of salt and spices and form patties, then pan fry in some olive oil. Also wondering if soup might be a possibility - can of gluten-free broth, throw in some frozen veggies and maybe a chicken breast. Maybe scrambled egg based dishes in the microwave?

Sweet potatoes are good. I like to make a mixture of chickpeas, chopped onion, cooked millet, and cooked rice, and saute that together with some green olives, and serve it over cooked sweet potatoes with some plain yoghurt for garnish. It sounds odd but it's really good, provided you can tolerate the starches.

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than location I went to. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their name for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I guess if staff members seem crazy, it's a good sign the doctor is also crazy.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
