Start with a good head cheese for the base of a sandwich and add what you like for condiments. Heated in a microwave they can be tasty.

Welcome Armed,
Could you possibly buy an electric slow cooking pot? Look online.You should find this excellent for cooking all kinds of meals while you are out and usually comes with a basic cook book to get you started. You could prepare all kinds of vegetable dishes that once cooked could be stored for later in the week that include ingredients such as chickpeas, lentils, soups (for hot or cold ) and chicken or lamb dishes. They are easy to use as well

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

Here's a good, basic list of items needed to outfit a new kitchen: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-set-...-kitchn-208432

This is a pretty handy method for making salads for the week: Put them in jars: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-pack...-kitchn-192174

And here are several recipes that show you the variety of salads you can make. Just choose the ingredient combinations that appeal to you: http://villagegreennetwork.com/17-ma...r-salad-ideas/

If you can't get canning jars there, any pint container with a lid will work; taller ones work better because they will keep the more delicate ingredients out of the dressing so they won't get soggy. You can combine a salad with soup or stew, as others have suggested, and have some bread to soak up the last of the dressing Hope this helps.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Ahmed, it sounds like time is a precious commodity for you right now. Perhaps instead of exhausting yourself in the kitchen you can go buy some lovely dried fruit and nuts and make yourself small containers of trail mix. You'll get the nutrition you need without spending so much in the cafeteria. Adding in some nice cheese and some fresh bread is easy and quick.

Don't bother with the cooking until you have some more time on your hands. Its lovely to learn, and to prepare meals for yourself, but you REALLY don't have the time right now.
