i need to plan; so i'm not eating shit when i get home from work simply because it's convenient. I have to wonder, is anyone else on a schedule where they're gone from home from 6:30 to 6:30 every day? I have about three and a half hours of free time before it's bed time four days a week, and let's add to that, my husband is an omnivore, so it is imparative that i cook things he will also eat. this makes for unhealthy, lazy eating through the week.
so my plans for this week are:

breakfast: cheerio type cereal with bananas and almond milk OR berry granola+yogurt OR (in extreme emergencies) Clif bar

snacks: rice cakes w/pb, dark chocolate w/hazelnuts, smoked almonds, frozen pineapple, cereal, chips and salsa or hummus

spinach/arrugala/romaine salad with broccoli slaw, asian bbq tofu, edamame, mandarin oranges, avocado and Toasted Sesame Dressing

roasted portabella mushrooms, with schzuan spinach, red wine cooked baby carrots and brown rice

small pot of spicy chili topped w/guac and corn + w/greens salad+dried berries

quinoa pasta w/spicy marinara, mushrooms, spinach and onions, small spinach salad w/walnuts and berries

jambalaya made w/spicy tofu crubles

hmmm, if you have a crockpot with very low temps you can always do soups, chili's and the like. I also used to make nut loaves, lentil loaves or black bean burgers, freeze them and then grab and heat as needed. This is great especially if you can use one of your days off as a cooking and planning day. Also some of those steamfresh veggies that you steam in the package are great time savers, and they even have some that are individual sized so you could take it to work. I also love making baked pasta dishes with vegan cheese, marinara, tvp or veggie crumbles, a little bit of tofutti cream cheese, and then mix it all together with penne put it in the oven and eat it over the week, you could add portobello and eggplant instead of tvp it is filling healthy and inexpensive. hope some of this helped!
