    Depends what you're goals are?

    Recomp? Bulk? Cut?

    How "clean" is your cafeteria food?

    if you want a cleaner diet how about bringing some food from home? beef jerky, protein bars or drink, pb & jelly sandwiches just to mention a few.

    well if your worried about not knowing what your eating, the best is to make your own..

    couple pb+j sandwhiches, bananna, protein shake..always makes a nice filling lunch.. chicken, tuna, fish..all lean meat is a good choice

    If you're bulking dirty or have a fast metabolism, I would say everything in sight.

    Otherwise I'd say have 1/3 of the plate be veggies, 1/3 meat, and 1/3 carbs. I'd substitute milk for water if you're not already doing that.

    EDIT: On an added note, if you're trying to bulk you should be forcing yourself to eat at the end of the meal. That way you're going past the signs of physiological satiety, meaning you're consuming more calories during a meal than your body "needs."

    by clean we're talking about ingredients not clean/dirty. particularly talking about things like how much sugar, bleached white flour, types of fat used, etc

    i could almost guarantee that the food served at school cafeterias are among the ''dirtiest'' you can find.

    You've got some good suggestions so far

    Tuna, chicken, PBJ (w/ natty PB, low sugar jelly), jerky, oatmeal, etc.

    i would go as far to say any protien (meat) is good for u! at 6' 170 u have some filling out to do. Always remember to bust your ass training and eat....... a lot..... and you will get bigger/stronger.

    i just graduated h/s in may of '08 (**** i'm getting older it seems) and our caf. food was pure dog crap!! full of processed junk and hardly any lean protein/ clean carbs. so beginning with my junior year I began cooking all of my food at home and bringing it to school. sunday afternoons i'd cook a big pot of brown rice/ whole wheat pasta and 1-2 pounds of ground beef. mix it all together with olive oil, shredded cheese, and black pepper and i'd have my meals for the whole week. also steam some veggies. but pb&j's, beef jerkey, baggies with assorted nuts, RTD protein shakes, tuna packs w/ the crackers already in them, fruit...etc. there are tons of different types of food you can cook easily and bring from home to eat rather than school garbage. but if you must eat it....then find people who don't want their lunch and see if they'll give you their skim milk, veggies, and whatever else you want. good luck bro. btw what grade are you in? glad to see another young gun on the forums w/ me, lata
