We are about to embark on a lot of building work at home which involves us being without a kitchen for several weeks. I'm not entirely sure what facilities we're going to have duing this time or how long exactly we'll be in this state but i want to continue to eat as well as we can during this time instead of reaching for the takeaway menu. Can anyone advise me where I can get the best ready meals from that are healthy and nutritious?

do you have a slow cooker and microwave? i set these up in the garage when we had kitchen redone. it was pretty easy to cook. worst thing was washing up.

When we were in the same boat- only a microwave and a kettle, and no room to chop anything or do any prep at all- we had the Cook ones and some from M and S. I noticed yesterday that Abel and Cole now do ready meals, and quite a few different ones too.

If you are going to have a freezer accessible, you could be super organized and batch cook? I can do 10 double portions of ragu in the one pot, just bunged in the oven for 3 hours. Also, chicken beasts done in a tarragon sauce for example. Or a huge strew with loads of veg and pulses in it?

We didn't have the freezer available, so it was good old ready meals, and bacon rolls from the local greasy spoon on a Saturday morning. Those bacon rolls almost made up for the 8 weeks of hell we had to endure!
