Help! What Are Some Simple, Healthy Meals for My Picky-Eater Dad?

Good Questions

Q: My father, after years of unhealthy eating, has agreed to let me dictate the menu for our upcoming family vacation. His only caveats are no black beans, hummus, or guacamole, and he wants meat in some form. He's essentially a meat and potatoes guy, and vegetables are only tolerable in salads. He's willing to try new things, but often doesn't like them. 

Our vacation suite will have a limited kitchen, a stove top and fridge, but no oven. I would greatly appreciate any ideas for introducing healthy but simple-to-prepare meals and ways in which you have had success in convincing picky eaters to try, (and like!) new foods.
