Today I am eating convenience foods. That is, I cooked eggs in a microwave cooker with veggies meat and cheese for breakfast, with toast. I was busy when I needed to eat lunch so I just ate a bowl of homemade granola. There will be other easy foods tonight while I try to get some other things done around here. Maybe salmon patties. Lots of veggies and some fruit. I buy bags of frozen vegetables and can cook them up quickly for a meal too. Or maybe clam chowder as a side to the salmon patties. We shall see.

Convenience foods do come in handy when time is short. As a vegetarian, I just grab what I have around and go since I hate to cook.

Salmon patties sound really good to me. We haven't had them in a while. I hope you enjoyed your meal.

When I was single, usually I would cook the convenience food because I was alone to have dinner. It was no need to cook a lot of food. But I would change the food everyday so that my diet would be balanced.

Convenience foods are a real convenience! I love salmon patties, too. The only frozen veggies we eat are frozen peas.

I wouldn't consider salmon patties a convenience food - or do you buy them ready made? Whatever - I love them.

I love salmon patties,and I buy a lot of frozen mixed vegetables, they are so easy to prepare. Yesterday I made a beef stew, and warmed up some of it for tonight, so that was easy. I have enough left for another meal.

For me, grabbing some fruit or nuts and seeds will get me to the next meal. Love homemade granola as a meal or snack too!

Convenience meals and impromptu meals are often just as tasty as the ones you spend hours preparing and cooking.... yours sound very tasty....

I define convenience foods as like bags of chips, that all still sounds pretty healthy! I did a stir fry with homemade brown sauce, and frozen bags of veggies for lunch myself.

I love the frozen veggie bags as well. They are quick and easy to whip up.

I have a microwave but don't use it a lot. I love salmon and veggies with it.

Convenience is good but skimping on preparation of something healthy is better, I can relate to time management though so enjoy some quick food !

Our "convenience" food at home would always be pasta. We always have jars of sauce and and pasta in the cupboard. Ragu is always cheap, so we always have them. And once in a while, when Alfredo sauces are on sale, we buy them.

I am guilty of eating a great deal of convenience foods in the course of a week. This is a symptom of living alone.
