Chowhound approved convenience food

My husband has started working longer hours and I have two children two and under and for the past month we have been eating a lot of fast food. WELL I'M SICK OF IT!!! I'm sick of feeling guilty everytime I give my daughter an overly processed chunk of something that was once chicken, I'm sick of thinking about how many thousand calories are in the one burger I'm eating, I'm sick of thinking about how the food I am eating was processed.

So....since I don't want to eat fast food and I don't have the time to make a whole meal from scratch like I used to (or do all the dishes...I don't have a dishwasher)...are there any good convenience foods out there that are fast and easy to prepare with little prep work, little mess, and good for flavor? I have tried a few asian tv dinner type things that were good, but I otherwise, I'm at a loss. Any ideas?
