Dining on $15 a Day

Okay. I am sooo excited to return to San Francisco Bay area next week! But, I'm on a shoe string budget, so I intend to make the best of my visit by eating whatever (relatively healthful) meals I can get my hand on for the equivalent of fifteen bucks per day. I've resigned myself to the fact that this will involve a little grocery shopping and cooking or sandwich-making in my hotel room, so long as I don't exceed my budget. Since I'll be in a hotel room somewhere in Alameda, I'll be dining between there and SF. I love ethnic food and vegetables, and I can get along just fine with many preparations of tofu. I don't mind heavy-duty beverages or meal-replacement shakes, either. My palette is flexible! Any suggestions?
