'06 WPO champ Matt Kroczalewski. on cooking/eating while in school:
"Make pre-cooking your food and tupperware your best friends. I often prepare an entire day's worth of food all at once and then package all of it into tupperware that fits into a large cooler that I take everywhere with me. If you were to talk to people I work with they would all talk about my cooler and food intake.
In pharmacy school I was intially known as the big weightlifter guy that sits in the back with his cooler and gallon of milk eating and drinking all the time. When someone doesn't know me people just say "You know the muscle dude that carries that cooler around all the time." And people immediately know who they are referring to.
Some foods I frequently package up and take with me are round steak, baked potatoes, cottage cheese, yogurt, sirloin burgers, oatmeal and whey protein (if you have access to a microwave or you can put it in a shaker cup), chicken or turkey breasts and eggs.
I often have had all four burners on my stove going while I take a shower and get ready for work. I time it so that I start everything, hop in the shower for about ten minutes and I'm back right on time to turn everything off and put it into tupperware.
Really it just takes planning, preparation and making it part of your everyday routine. After a while you just do it without really even thinking about it. I am able to get out of bed, cook my food, shower/shave and pack my cooler in thirty minutes and be out the door."
