      1) Ground beef, eggs, and veggies.
      2) Bacon, eggs, veggies.
      3) Bacon.
      4) Chicken thighs/legs/drumsticks in the oven.
      5) Soups -- chicken, marrow bones w/beef, etc.
      6) Slow cooker + roasts + veggies
      7) Veggie ideas -- oven roasted, steamed, sautéed.

      It doesn't have to be fancy. I'm a grad student so I know how you feel. If you have your own kitchen, excellent. If not, let us know. We can help brainstorm.
      Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

        And stir fries! Any combo of meat, veggies and fat that you want. I'm also a grad student and find that it really helps to make 2-3 different batches of food on Sunday, then rotate through them during the week.

          If at all possible, whatever you choose to do, invest in a slow cooker / crock pot. I mean "do it yesterday" type quickness.

              This is pretty much what I would say too, except I'm just a lowly undergrad.
              My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

                    I do have a kitchen and thanks everyone.
                    Also, does everyone not usually eat much dairy? I have been slacking lately.

                      I don't eat any dairy as I'm following a Candida program. If I were a student, I'd still not have dairy. I'd really have to think about what to eat...

                      Hamburgers, avocados, eggs, eggs, eggs, butter, coconut oil...
