So, I'm vegetarian and I can't cook due to multiple disabilities. Does the following food meet all my nutritional needs? If not, what other no-cook foods could I add in?

(When I say I can't cook, I can't even slice cheddar cheese off the block due to chronic finger/hand/wrist pain. I also have pain, fatigue and balance problems that mean I can't stand up. I can give a piece of fruit a quick rinse under a running tap, though.)
My diet at the moment is:
unsweetened cherry juice;
presliced cheddar cheese;
mung-bean and pumpkin salad from the farmer's market;
fruit yoghurt from the farmer's market;
pumpkin and ginger soup from the supermarket;
lentil and kidney bean patties from a local vegan cafe.
On top of this, my Dr gives me B12 injections every 2 weeks; I am on a brand and dose of iron tablets recommended by my Dr; and a magnesium supplement.
Does this meet all my nutritional needs?
