You could pick up some fruit from the grocery store.  I’ve done that on vacations.  Check out some of the ready to eat stuff in the grocery store as well.  Rotisserie chicken is always good!  There are also the soups where you don’t need a can opener, but you would need a microwavable dish.

Baguette and cheeses from the grocery store. Also, salads.. those kits they sell are at least healthy and I’m sure you could access a couple of forks and a bowl.

Also, I read something online that you can get taco bell vegan (???) At least its a little healthier than loading up on their regular menu.

Fruit, cereal, sandwich fixings, prepared salads from the grocery store deli? I would look at some frozen stuff, too. You can buy a box of plastic silverware to get you through the next few days.

@Mrs_Amanda:  *HUGS*  I totally feel you.  Our kitchen is being renovated and everytime I ask how much longer, it’s 2 weeks….since the beginning of May lol.  It feels like that movie “The Money Pit.”  Hopefully we’ll both be able to cook a nice meal again soon.

Agreed with PPs: fruit cups (pre-washed and -cut) and salad kits from the grocery store. Also you could buy greek yoghurt, granola, and plastic spoons. That would make a great snack/breakfast. Order salads at the restaurants, dressing on the side and use sparinkly.  You could also buy sliced bread, lunch meat, cucumber, tomato, mayo, mustard, and make your own healthy sandwich. Only thing you’ll need is some disposable knife.

It’ll be over soon! Congrats on the new home! 🙂

PS: I love frozen meals from Trader Joes! Can’t stand the regular grocery store ones.

Buy some of the disposable roasting pans.  

You can through any “normal” food in them. IE buy some chicken tenders, some precut veggies and toss with oil and through it in the oven. Buy some bagged salads and voila a dinner.

Or throw big baked potatoes in the oven and add some frozen heated broccoli and shredded cheese on it and rotisserie chicken

I did this a lot for a week when we were in a similar situation. I made sure to not pack a single knife and fry pan, and a plastic tupperware I could use for cereal, mixing etc. We ate omelettes.

@Mrs_Amanda:  Maybe a picnic in the park is in order – just some bread and deli meat (and a couple small single serve condiments – usually at deli counter).

Might help to combat the heavy, greasy feeling you get from easting out.

Feel for you babe – I work 12 hour shifts some times and when I leave the office the last thing I want to do is cook – but even worse I dont want to eat out either. lol – Catch 22!
