I'm seeking your suggestions for easy, accessible, flexible paleo-ish meals. Snowflakes!

I'm starting Crossfit foundations tomorrow (yay!). My research so far shows that a zone or paleo eating style is greatly encouraged. I don't want this to derail me from learning to be strong.
I eat mostly vegetarian, but more importantly I eat cheap and boring. Recently I've been eating pretty much the same thing everyday with occasional meals out (I usually get salad or a veggie burger). So it looks like this:
Breakfast: Oatmeal, maybe a banana and lots of coffee with lots of almond milk
Lunch: Egg salad (1 egg, 1 egg white & 1 tbsp olive oil mayo) with lettuce & tomato in a Flatout
Dinner: Lentils & rice with Greek yogurt
Snacks: liberal hummus and baby carrots
I like this because it's cheap, reliable and I've got all the points right for Weight Watchers. I do not like to cook, I do not like to grocery shop, and I really, really do not like the idea of going paleo and eating meat three (3??) times a day, but it's already obvious to me I'm going to need more protein.
Can you suggest your best meals that closely resemble my current diet? They would ideally be:
Fast and easy to make
Complemented your Crossfitting awesomely
I'm just not going to be grinding my own almond flour for organic-blueberry-paleo-gluten-free muffins. Thanks!!
