I don't believe this has been asked quite in the specificity of my problem, so here goes, briefly.
I am currently in college and have been paleo since may (the beginning of summer). Being home and trying it out for a few months made be feel awesome and i loved it. But now i am back on campus in a room where i have a kitchen but only a sink, refrigerator, and microwave. I have a meal plan that allows me to eat at the dining hall once a day where i can do a pretty solid job of being kosher.
I take a multivitamin, fish oil, and b-12 (i have a deficiency).
So the question is: How can i eat paleo (or an approximation thereof) for dinner in my room without the ability to cook food?
I have done lots of salads for this first month and although i make a pretty delicious & loaded salad, i just don't see it as sustainable. It is expensive (remember, i'm in college) and i don't think i can eat the same thing for dinner every night until May 2012.
Part of me thinks i should just be strict for lunch (at the dining hall) and then be pretty loose for dinner. Atleast until i graduate, which isn't too far off.
All else in check by the way. No sugar, no dairy, lots of sleep, and exercise. I am 6'1 and 160lbs, just had a physical and i am clear on everything else. The only scary part of introducing grains back into my diet is fluctuating energy levels and depression returning.
Thanks and i appreciate any feedback in advance!
Crap! i forgot a pretty critical element. The place i live has really sensitive fire alarms. I tried cooking with a hot plate for awhile and even turning the damn thing on would set it off. I also got busted putting for turning the fire alarm off. So the only appliances i've found that work out are crockpots and rice cookers.
