Meal plans for a busy lifestyle?

I am constantly running around during the day and that has led me to make horrible meal choices. Usually in the morning I would grab a slim fast bar or sometimes a poptart and for lunch i ran through a drive thru to get something quick and easy. I am bound and determined to be done with the fast food for good, but then that requires me preparing something ahead of time. What are some very quick and easy meal plans that don't require a lot of time?

Well healthy cereal in the morning is quick and easy, you can t eat it in your car though. Or put some fruit in a blender add a little milk and make a smoothie.

you can grab some fruit, nectarines are really good, and for the price of a burger, you can get a few kilos worth, or get some yogurt, and drizzle on some oats, and dried fruit, these actually take less time than a fatty fast food meal being prepared, and its better for you

What I did alot was cook the night before.. so when I got home the next day, I just had to heat it up. Otherwise I get too hungry to wait for food to cook and would get Mc Donalds.

you must eat more in the morning,so get up a bit earlier. lunch the way you are doing it now as you have no time but dinner should be at least a steak and salad,which doesn't require a big expertise.

I like big salads... I buy the bagged lettuce, carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes, any pre-chopped veggies for that matter, cubed/shredded cheese for the basic part of the salad. For the meat/protein, I use the little tuna cans, imitation crab, shrimp, or any deli style meat in cube form. (You can either buy it pre-cut or... More
