I cook both oatmeal and cornmeal (polenta) in the microwave. You can stir nonfat dry milk powder into either one for calcium and protein. Potatoes, onions and winter squash will keep several days in a cool, dry place. Apples, oranges, bananas and raisins are good fruit choices and will last a while without refrigeration. Dried beans are the cheapest protein, but unless you have a hot plate to cook them canned are a good second choice. Most are a bit bland, but they might make good cold salads with a little garlic, oil and vinegar or lemon. Don't forget peanut butter! I like it on store-brand whole-wheat crackers.
