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.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
