    So I've been living on my own for the past 3 weeks. I have never lived on my own before this. I've been having a hard time with the food because I don't know how to cook. I've made spaghetti twice so far. And yesterday for the first time ever i made rice and it tasted really good!!!! i also made spinach and put some chicken in the oven. The rest of the days I've been eating at subway since it's the only healthy choice near me. I find that I'm running out of money fairly quickly and would appreciate it if you guys had quick and easy recipes for me to cook. Please share icon_wink.gif thanks!

    I cook most nights and after weeks of eating the same meals over and over I started looking up recipes online. Some of them even give you nutritional info. The important thing is just to remember your portion sizes and to use fresh ingredients. The more processed stuff you put in, the less nutritional benefit you get out.

    I have used this site:

    Good luck! Experiment and find what works for you. Also, eating healthy and cooking is not necessarily cheap, so dont expect to be saving money over eating at Subway. What you can do, however, is make larger portions for basically the same price and have leftovers, or break the goods into smaller pack sizes and freeze or store the remainder for use later.

    Go to the grocery store and buy the ingredients to make your favorite 'subway' sandwich.

    Here's a forum on what guys buy at the grocery store:
