How to maintain paleo at a university dorm?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 04, 2013 at 11:05 AM

I'm expecting to eventually live in a dorm on a university campus. I'll be working part-time and perhaps eating most of the dorm's food while residing there. Any tips? Is there any possiblity I'll be able to make some or most of my own food?

I currently live in the dorms at my school and I have to eat a meal plan.

I have learned the menu very well, and I just stick to the same basic things at every meal. Also, since the food quality isn't the best considering all the people they have to cook for, just do the best you can. Like in the morning, order fried eggs instead of scrambled, because then they have to use real eggs instead of powdered.

At lunch, I always stick with a salad and the lean meats they provide at the salad bar.

If there is a pasta bar at dinner, which seems to happen often, I usually get spinach and top it with the most paleo pasta toppings.

And any time they have any sort of fish or roast, take FULL advantage!

I also keep a jar of coconut oil in my room, along with some cashews.

I hope this was helpful.

It wasn't so hard where I was to be at least "very paleo." I stuck to egg and veg omellets in the morning, salad bar and chicken or roast or whatever meat they had. They almost always had something. Sure, maybe the bbq sauce has some corn syrup. But just let the chef's know you have a wheat allergy, and imo, unless you wanna eat off campus or just live off campus and cook, that's the best bang for your buck/way to go about it. Stash some grilled chicken in your dorm fridge too cause there will be the inevitable pasta/pizza night that is bound to storm up. Good luck and study hard!

Eggs, Chicken, Oranges, Apples, Banana etc Lots of nuts! (trail mix is great, minus the m&ms) Free-roam beef, other naturally fed animals. And most of all lots of organic vegetables!
