some great "easy" foods that haven't been mentioned....and some additions to those that have....

Almonds (great for you; yummy snack)
Mix granola in with your yogurt...adds crunch!
Quaker instant oatmeal is super easy (I cook mine in microwave) and it's good for you
Mix carbonated water with your favorite juice (orange, cranberry, etc.)
One of my favorites....buy a pack of portabella mushroom caps....put em in a frying pan with a little olive oil...cook on high heat approx. 5 minutes each side or until browned...YUM (these guys are filling)...you can top with tomato/cheese slices and fresh spinach leaves for that "burger" feel

A healthier eat-out options for a college student budget is Subway. (it's healthier than fast food)

don't feel bad! This whole last week, I only went to one days worth of classes because ive been so sick

Avoid anything greasy, try to eat bready things (whole wheat would be even better), and make sure to get enough vitamins. Also, drink plenty of water! If you are getting to a point you are throwing up, you are losing tons of water and you could get sick from dehydration.

Not sure.. ive just had a horrible cough and have felt crummy all week. It's like, if I wasn't doing much I wouldn't feel so bad. But it was when I was out and about, being active, that it got worse and really.. just blah.

I don't blame you about not wanting to eat college food. However, if you are on campus there might be a general store that sells decent food. In the Union at my college they sell subs, wraps, salads, smoothies, sandwhiches...

Some virus is going around. My brother had it, James has it (has had it for over a week now), and several of our clients come in with it. Uck. Be careful not to come in contact with sick people.

wash your hands whenever you can or carry that gel stuff that kills germs. this is good *especially* if you are living on campus. I remember my first year (omg! I can't believe it has been three years since I started!!!), and I got something nasty from the food on campus coupled with the change in lifestyle. Just make sure you eat healthy, drink water and orange juice, eat a good breakfast (I like Life cereal) every day if you can. A lot of the advice that has been given is stuff I ignored and I'm sure I've suffered from neglecting myself.

Something else to do, get out and exercise. The weather is probably going to stay nice for a little while longer (depending on where you are) and getting outside is the best thing you can do, imo. It gets you away from large quantities of germs and allows you to breathe clean air and get nasty germs out of your lungs. Plus, exercising will help you overall (prevent the freshman 15, for some people it is more like 20-30). You don't need to go run three miles, but just walking can be good for you. HTH!!
