I am a college sophomore and I have only been gluten-free for about 2 months, so I totally understand what you are going through! My advice to you is to a.) consider the options your school has for special diets students. Can they accommodate you? Do they have gluten free foods available? If no, then b.) consider doing your own cooking and grocery shopping. The brand Udi’s makes great gluten free breads (also wheat free), cookies, bagels, and even frozen pizzas. They’re great for college students because you can keep eating like a “normal” student without feeling isolated among your peers, while also remaining healthy. Lots of fruits and veggies, meats, nuts, gluten free pastas, ect. Most junk food has got to go though-- so if you’re missing that, look at Udi’s products, in addition to some Trader Joes desserts and Enjoy Life chocolate bars.
Good luck to you! I know its tough. Most of my friends have been very supportive though!
