In the effort to replenish my daily stock of free time I've decided to spend 5 nights a week sleeping over at the office. For the record, my higher-ups are totally comfortable with this (and, for better or worse, encourage it). Looking over my expenses for the past month, as well as the ever-expanding circumference of my waistline, I've come to the realization that eating take-out 5 days a week for lunch and dinner probably isn't the most intelligent way I could be spending my money. Especially when I make peanuts per/hr.
So, we have a mini-fridge here, but no stove, no oven, no microwave, no toaster, nor nothin' else. However, there is a well-stocked supermarket just 50 feet across the street. Hmm...
For the survivalists and spendthrifts out there, as well as other creative minds of all kinds, I ask you: how would you nutritionally sustain yourself under such circumstances?
And, bonus points!: in the absence of being able to cook raw meat/poultry, how would I best consume adequate amounts of protein for a weight lifting regime? I'm looking at you, vegetarian and vegan mefites.
All tips, suggestions, pointers and recommendations are most welcome, even if they may seem absurdly obvious. To me, they probably are not so obvious. I've never lived all on my own (in a sense) before, so this is crossing more than one threshold for me.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, all who may contribute! :)
