The best advice i can give you is to stick to cheap ingredients (especially meats i.e. chicken) then learn a few basic recipes before u leave for uni. Once ur at uni start to advance on the recipes or get a cook book with simple but flexible recipes so that you can cater for everyone (after all not everyone likes spicy food lol) but as you go on you'll get a taste for the flavours and know when something needs more of one thing or more of another. It really is only practice and experimentation to get the balance of flavours right, the rest is timing. The longer something takes to cook the sooner you start to cook it e.t.c

look in your fridge and cabinets. make a memory of what you already have. go on the internet. type key items that you have and get the recipe. pick the recipe with ingredients you mostly have already. and then see if the leftover ingredients are really neccessary. if so, just go to the supermarket (before going, search for other recipes that have any connections with either your key items or the leftover ingredients...so you can use it more than twice). if not, then start cooking and worry about tomorrow's meal some other time =]

i suppose my gf has her own way *points the post on top with my username*.

3 things i would give u - onion, garlic, and tomato. tha back bone for most delicious meals. other than that, try to minimize the size of the food ur making- a) teaches how to handle size and proportion b) most of the time it comes tastier unless u an expert.
i recommend u go for fish and beef over chicken, kno how to make pasta sauce from scratch(onion, garlic n tomato.........), make rice n such.
know limits n have a plan to eat certain kinds of food.

like sometimes before i go for my martial art training-
i make pasta as main dish with little mashed potatoes, fresh carrots, broccoli, maybe cucumber or lentils as sides. and a salad with tomato, blueberry, goat cheeze n olive oil. and a cup of ice-cream

by doin this i get this
pasta- MUST HAVE CARBS. for me its a necessity i get carbs anytime anywhere possible because my training requires twice the normal amount.
potatoes- potassium for attaining optimal muscle performance and improving the nerves' response to stimulation. lots of B vitamins and sum protein as well for red blood cells which = more Oxygen uptake
carrots- O.O
broccoli- Iron n lots of it which most essential for locomotion and thyroid(ur throat health thus indirectly help ur immune system=good if u get bruised alot
lentiles- proteins which are good for DNA and more importantly ur enzymes(metabolism o.0) as well as another form of energy if needed.

salad(green leaves)- r good source of minerals and vitamins already
blueberry- antioxidants
tomato- prostate health for men >:D
olive oil- fats and good hair bwuahahaha


see i get all this benefit from on simple meal and its still be healthy and be top of my game.

Carbohydrates DO NOT cause weight gain and obesity
Carbohydrates DO NOT automatically cause blood sugar "spikes" and insulin "surges"
Carbohydrates DO NOT cause diabetes, heart disease or cancer.
Carbohydrates are the body's primary fuel source. Muscles prefer them and the brain relies on them. In fact, carbohydrates are so crucial to the body that if you severely cut them from your diet, your body will begin to breakdown muscle and other protein-containing tissues-your heart and other vital organs-in order to make them.

just need to make this clear cuz i kno lots of female friends tend to not really research.
