Q: In a couple of weeks, I am going to be participating in a dance intensive at my school in Ohio. I have a limited budget, will be cooking in a dorm kitchen, and will probably be too tired to cook full meals at the end of every day. What are some low-budget, high-protein, make-ahead meals that can keep me going in cold, wintry Ohio?
