Best of luck!

You said with your schedule that it seems like fast food is sometimes an option. Lots of them have salads, and if you skip the dressing aren't half bad for you. Some of them also have lower calorie sandwiches, like the BBQ Chicken at Carl's Jr., etc. Just skip the soda and sides.

Don't forget the HEALTHIER deli stuff at the grocery store! There are sandwiches there. You can also buy some fruit (apples have fiber for a filling snack, bananas are portable), and baby carrots, and it doesn't need much.

I like to eat tuna straight out of the can with celery sticks. It's yummy. Add a handful of almonds to that snack for "healthy fats", and you'll stay fuller, longer.

Best of luck!

Thanks for all the great advice! I am making it work and just trying to plan more for nights that I get home late. I have even lost some weight and my weigh-in isn't until Friday! Woohoo!

You have gotten some great advice. I can't think of much to add... get some zip n steam bags and you can cook all your veggies that way. You can steam meat in them as well if you don't want to have to dishes after. And while I am not ever really in favor of take and toss kind of things, sometimes, paper plates and disposable cookware are our friends. But, use paper over plastic or at least get the recyclable plastic dishes! They just take a quick rinse before tossing them in the recycling bin!

Imperfection is important. If we were all perfect, then there would be no such thing as growth, and everyone would be extremely boring, which is, paradoxically, not that perfect.-- Dr. Matt

Frozen meals ,, tuna on the go, buy a premade salad or get the salad mix and add stuff and use paper plates.. subs from subway are great as well.. or go and splurge and get a nice meal out that is within your dietary needs.. hope all is back to new fast!

You can make a really nice lunch/ dinner with just crackers, cheese and hummus and cut vegetables too. All things you can by cut and prepackaged and just put together on a paper plate or a baggie to make it portable!

Salads don't take cooking, either. Just a place to wash and chop! And you can augment them with canned tuna, those chicken strips that come pre-cooked, beans, lite cheeses, etc. for protein sources.

Jester has a great idea! Also, so that you don't load up on sodium, try some lettuce wraps with some chicken from a local Greek restaurant/deli. They're great!

When you really live, there's just no time to be bored.

Yes, we do have a fridge and freezer and we relocated the microwave to the garage. We were trying to cut down on dishes since we have to wash them in the bathroom but the frozen meal containers are disposable so that makes it easy! I will go buy some. I will just have to tell the boys (my boyfriend and brother that live with me) that they are on their own for dinner because they always want the convenience of fast food and I can already hear them complaining about frozen meals! haha.
I guess I rely on my stove so much for heating up soup and frozen veggies that I forgot it can be done in the microwave! Thanks for the advice...time to head to the grocery store!

I'm assuming you have a fridge and a freezer? Maybe try some Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice tv dinners, keep some frozen veggies around to augment them. You can relocate the microwave to anywhere! Also, Progresso Light soups are super yummy!

Do you have a refrigerator? How about a microwave?
Because I'd go the frozen dinners accentuated with salad and/or frozen veggies route. TJ's has pre-cooked brown rice, and some rather yummy frozen dinner entree stuff.

If not then yeah, Subway will be your best friend. Try and find a fast greek restaurant because chicken kbobs on a greek salad is yummy and pretty healthy.

Not gonna be fun on your pocketbook, but I imagine the demolished kitchen already took care of that...

Our kitchen has been demolished (no sink, no dishwasher, no counters, no stove) because we had a leaky pipe that caused a bunch of mold...no fun! Anyway, it won't be fixed until Friday and for the most part we aren't eating/cooking anything at home except for cereal. I work and have school at night and don't get home until 9-11 depending on the night and I am having a hard time finding healthy meal options. The only places that seem to be open are fast food. Not having a kitchen and my abnormal schedule is making it hard to eat healthy! Any advice for what I can do until Friday?? Thanks Done Girls!
