My daughter will be in your postition next year, so I am intersted in this
topic. I recently read about a book called _On Campus Cookbook_ by
Fitzgerald. Not sure how low
fat it is, but with all the fat subs available that shouldn't be too much of
A small (4 cup) crockpot would allow you to cook whole grain cereals
overnight for quick
breakfasts, or use it during the day for making small batches of soup or
stew-like meals for the evening. A "hot pot" gives you hot water for lots
of instant cup meals, etc. Soy protein powder would help boost the
nutrition of smoothies. I have a hand held blender made by Braun that makes
them quickly with easy clean up. If there is a kitchen on your dorm floor,
you could do more "complicated" cooking on the weekends.

Keep us posted on what works best for you and good luck.
