How bad of a reaction do you have to white potatoes? If it isn't too scary maybe try it out, but I think that red skinned potatoes are still white potatoes, the nightshade kind, just a slight variation in breed.

Surely you have a small dorm fridge...? Load it up with hard boiled eggs! I'd say coconut butter and coconut shreds along with your coconut oil. Cans of tuna. Get over your nut thing. Or try sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
