Does anyone know of any quick and Healthy Recipes for a College Student who CANT cook?

I gained like 8 pounds my first year of college from eating nothing but fast foods, and I am back to my normal weight because im back home for the summer. I really need to know how to make some semi-healthy foods so I can maintain my weight and overall health.
Some things I Iike to Eat: Broccoli, Mac and Cheese, Pasta, Salads, Chicken, and Spaghetti. So if you have any recipes using these foods or others please post them.

Thanks in advance!!

    Cut up chicken and put it in your pasta, salad, chicken, and mac and cheese. make like 5 chicken breasts in the oven with salt and pepper on like 375 until the juices run clear, then add it to what you eat all week long, just cut it into strips and add to your salad or spaghetti and alfredo sauce and brocolli! yum hope i helped

    Baked Beans.
    Empty can into a MW safe bowl (cover) and nuke on maximum for 2 minutes.
    Stir and nuke for a further two.
    Pour over hot buttered toast.
    Spice them up with a little chilli or Cayenne powder.
    Add some diced cold lamb, beef etc.
    Add a fried Egg on top.

    Pasta:- Seafood
    6 T. soy sauce, divided (with extra available)
    6 T. olive oil, divided (with extra available)
    8 oz. imitation crab meat, in bite size pieces
    1 large sweet onion, slice into rings
    8 oz. Elbow pasta, cooked & drained
    In skillet, sauté onion rings in 3 T. olive oil. Sprinkle on 3 T. soy sauce. Cover and sauté over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add imitation crab. Sprinkle on another 3 T. soy sauce and 3T. olive oil. Do not let pan go dry. It should be juicy. Let simmer for 15 minutes or until onions are caramelized and crab is nicely browned and crisp along edges. Toss with hot pasta. Serve.
    I like to serve it with a salad and garlic bread.

    On this site page you can get recipes for Cambell’s Soup. All are easy and affordable.

    Try this bean salad. Perfect anytime and more special because you add Frito’s Corn Chips to it when you are ready to eat.

    Get three or four cans of your favorite beans. Like light red kidney, pinto, great northorn, garbanzo. Drain them and add them to a bowl with 1 large sweet chopped onion. Mix in a bottle of french dressing. When you are ready to serve add the regular sized frito’s corn chips to it and stir well. You get protein and fiber from the beans and the frito’s make it taste great!

    A trip to your library for an easy beginners cook book should do the trick. Below are two pointers…..

    Pasta – add to pan of boiling water – return to boil and simmer for 8 – 10 mins.

    Salad – Wash Lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, onions, radish etc. Add to bowl – tear lettuce if you wish, slice, toms, cucumber, onions and radish – mix a dressing one part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil add pepper, crushed garlic, some mustard as you like – alternative just natural yoghurt and crushed garlic dribbled over salad.

    I’ve been trying the new ziploc steam bags. I put a chicken breast in the bag and microwave. In another bag I throw some broccoli or other veggies and microwave that too. It’s fool proof. The directions are on the bag and it comes with some recipes. You can go to to see more info.

    You can buy Pasta Sides/Rice Sides by Lipton, which are really good and don’t have too many calories in them. When I lived in a college dorm, I use to live off of Ramen noodles, corn straight out of the can, turkey breast & bbq chicken breast sandwiches, canned spaghetti, and salads. That’s the reason I decided to get an apartment!
