No Time To Cook?

Between being away for the 4th and moving to a new home, I've spent nary a second in the kitchen except to pack it up. With my pots, pans, favorite knife and various cooking tools scattered and wrapped in boxes, I've had an "opportunity" to rely on preprepared foods from around town.  I was familiar with the vast options at Whole Foods (they have detailed ingredients labels so you can make sure there isn't a bunch of sugar lurking in an otherwise healthy looking vegetable medley) but I just discovered a lovely little spot called Lemonade.  If you're lucky enough to live close to one of their locations (downtown, beverly, venice) you should definitely give yourself a break from cooking at some point and enjoy any one of their delicious Gundry-friendly options.
Below is there full list of salads (some work, some don't, but you see my point), with the ones I tried bolded.  With the cheese, avocado and nuts in many of the choices, you don't really need extra protein, depending on which phase you're in.  Well, Movers are on their way... I'll "see" you in my new kitchen.
