Lunch from Trader Joe's

A brand new grocery store opened up near where I work! Yay! (Previously, there weren't any nearby.) I want to get my lunch there. What should I buy?

My goals here are three-fold: I want the things I buy to be 1) cheap, 2) healthy (ideally fresh), and 3) sized for one meal (with a few exceptions—I can keep something like a bag of tortilla chips around for a few days, for example). I have access to a microwave and hot water at work, but my only dishes are a bowl, fork, spoon, and knife (I plan to get a vegetable knife soon).
I am horrible at bringing packed lunches from home, so please do not recommend that.
The grocery store is a Trader Joe's. What should I buy from there for immediate lunch consumption?
