I'm a college student with a far amount of dietary restrictions. I was wondering if any of you had suggestions about healthy meals that aren't too expensive.

My restrictions are:
All forms of Dairy
All forms of red meat as well as pork
cashews pistachios peanuts
Mangos, citrus fruit, Pineapples

Almond milk, poultry, seafood, and rice are safe for me.

If you have any ideas on meals It would be greatly appriciated Smile

Checkout this website:

It is a website with lots of recipes for those with a lot of dietary restrictions and how to substitute in recipes. Also, checkout healthy asian cooking or mediteranian diet. Looks like those things would work well for you.

I have a lot of food intolerances and celiac disease to boot. Good luck!

My first reaction is that you have room for lots of Asian food. You would probably do well if you started investigating vegetarian Asian cooking and then added chicken and seafood to the mix.

Everytime I drink cow's milk or eat eggs with yolk, I get horrible stomach bloating and discomfort, followed by some anxiety, so I partially, at least, know how you feel about dietary restrictions.

Buy a box of brown rice and those ready to eat pouches of salmon already seasoned with stuff like dill. Easy to prepare, all you do is microwave it a bit if you like the salmon to be warm. Boil some carrots with some honey and olive oil and a bit of sea salt for a great side. Carrots fill me up without the weird discomfort and bloating. Crush some garlic cloves on your seafood and veggies for a nice taste.

Bake some chicken or breast of turkey in an oven with some olive oil, rosemary sprigs and fresh thyme. I shred mine to little peices after its been baked and steam some broccoli for a healthy side, maybe add some sliced almonds or wonton strips on top of the broccoli.

I hope some of my ideas helped!

Any activity trackers that sync with FatSecret?
I'm debating on buying a FitBit Charge HR or a Jawbone Up3. I wish there was a tracker which would feed the activity to my FatSecret.

Not hungry anymore
Eating so little will put your body into starvation mode. And that's not good - long term you could get ill, you need to eat a sensible amount for your weight.
