I need to GAIN weight

My goal: gain 15 lbs. 

I'm mid twenty, weigh 90 lbs = underweight.  BMI is 18. Aarggh! I'm considered malnourished because I don't eat enough because I don't want to eat.  Although eating at my regular calories (2,200) per day should help; however, in order to gain 15 lbs, I'd need to consume 2,700kcals/day.

Fruits: 2.5 serving
Veggies: 3.5 serving
Grains: 9 ounces
Meat/Beans: 6.5 ounces
Milk: 3

I need to 'eat' 6 times a day (just because my day runs from 9:00 AM - 1:00 AM). Eat here can be a meal or a snack. Yikes! I'm going to be broke. From today until the day I reach my goal, I will....

  1. Prepare meals at home
  2. Shop sales items: yogurt 10 for $5, pasta sauce 2 for $5 and ect. (Most markets occasionally has sales Weds-Sun)
  3. Drink milk
  4. Salad is an easy snack and so is nuts, dried fruits, seeds, peanut (if you're allergic to peanut, there's peanut allergy patch, talk to your doctor)
  5. Have a structured, regular eating occasions are necessary!
