Best bet for healthy prepared meals?

If I wanted to eat only healthy prepared meals daily in NYC, what would be the best option to do so with as little thought, effort, and cost possible? Weight watcher's or Amy's frozen meals? Prepared meals and soups from Whole Foods or Trader Joe's? Nu-kitchen's expensive -- any cheaper but high-quality alternatives?

Hitting my eye like a big pizza pie (and bagel)

I am in NYC for the first time and I've done nearly everything that was on my list to do. The only things I am missing are a great slice of pizza (new york style, of course) and a bagel that will knock my socks off. For an added bonus, I'd like to do it on the cheap. I'm staying in Brooklyn, but the neighborhood isn't terribly important.

Where can I find deep-South groceries in New York City?

My wife and I live in New York City, but she's from the Deep South (Alabama). She's often miffed that when she goes to a grocery store in the city, she can't find food and treats that she grew up with (i.e. Goo Goo Clusters). I know you can order a lot of stuff online, but I was wondering -- since there are Korean grocery stores and Indian grocery stores (and even British grocery stores) in NYC -- is there a Southern U.S. grocery store? If not, is there a central website for ordering Southern food products (rather than multiple websites of various product manufacturers)?
