i use a calorie counting app. So no matter what I eat, I can get an idea of how much (portion control) and to see any obvious gaps. Some veggies like spinach have small amounts of protein, for example, so you can have some if you are low on protein. Helps you know over time how your doing as well. I use the Nutrition app for iphone.

Also, at home, since I'm still living w/ my parents until i graduate, my mom graciously makes meals for my family, what should i do to get the proper nutrition?
