Best minimal prep food at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods (one hand edition)
March 7, 2014 10:52 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for recommendations for the best/tastiest foods (frozen, packaged, prepared) from Trader Joe or Whole Foods that require minimal prep to prepare. I have a stove, oven and toaster oven, but no microwave (please don't suggest I buy or borrow one; can't happen right now.) I have no diet restrictions and will eat most things other than extra spicey.
The big factor in all this is that they need to take minimal prep to prepare. I broke 2 fingers on my right/dominant hand (broken near where they attach to the hand), and am in a hand brace that can't get wet or get food on it (though I can put plastic bags over it.) So, to work with I have my fumbley left hand, working thumb and index finger on my right hand, and occasional use of a long hours working husband to open jars and cans for me if I plan ahead.
Thanks for any help. I'm getting tired of takeout, plus it gets expensive for the month or so healing time.
