I am a college student so naturally I don't have much money and my school is a "commuter school" meaning that the food choices are minimal. They have contracted food out to a fast food company so my options are limited to subway, wendy's, Chick Fil A, and a Baja Flats (during lunch only). The problem is that I am also into bodybuilding so protein is a major concern for me. I don't really need to worry about other things because I have a bottle of vitamins something I learned from my brief vegetarian stint as a 10 year old (b-12 shots suck). I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Thank you very much for your help.

Our cafeteria has a microwave in it, too, and they don't mind when the staff use it to heat up their lunches (so I assume they don't mind if students do, either). If you can, though, bring your own lunch. There's only so much fast food you can eat anyway.

I always pack my own lunches. Depending on what I pack, they don't always need a microwave. A nice big whole wheat pasta salad with tofu, beans, and veggies would be a high protein, filling lunch that does not require reheating (or refrideration between morning and lunch as long as you don't make it with a mayo dressing).

Three letters for you: PBJ!!! High protein, healthy, low budget, and easy to carry a sandwich (or 2 or 3) in your backpack.<br><br><br><br>

Visit <a href="http://www.veganlunchbox.com" target="_blank">www.veganlunchbox.com</a> and get her book (she also runs a blog). The author makes up lunches for her 7 year old son each day that adhere to PCRM guidelines, then posts them (and her son's comments) each day. This blog has won loads of awards, and the book will give you tons of ideas. If they won't bring the food to you, take the food to college yourself!
