sb kinda nailed it. there are some cured meats that are fine at room temp, since that's how they are made -- like prosciutto. but most whole foods are perishable at room temp, especially animal proteins, and eggs are not safe at room temp for more than a few days.
buying take-away from places like whole foods is rapidly going to add up to way more than what you'd spend on a small fridge.
good luck with your transitions.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
