One suggestion I have is to visit SavingDinner.com - Leanne Ely has put this site together with menus, recipes and matching shopping lists. Another idea I've had and used it to make a list of my favorite entrees. Turn the list into a grid to include side dishes. Then it will be easier to incorporate a variety of foods.
BBQ chicken -- baked potato Teriyaki tuna -- brown rice Beef fajitas -- left over potato or rice, salad with avocado
Good luck! Rachelle

This is an area where I struggled too. One thing I do now is to eat the same breakfast most days. Just one serving of high fiber "O"s cereal and plain european style yogurt. Yes, sometimes I will make a veggie omelet but this did make one portion of my week a bit easier.

Hi, I am in desperate need of help. I'm trying to plan my meals for the week, but am having a hard trouble doing so. Any tips as to where I should start, or complete meal ideas that pack a lot of flavor but not a lot of calories? Thank you!! :D
