Have you given any thought to meal planning? sit down once a week and plan out your meals I have the same thing for breakfast on weekdays, but lunch and dinner are usually different. Obviously, it can be flexible, so if you don't want to make fajitas on Wednesday, you can make them on Thursday. I get home from work/gym around the same time you do, do a little exercise, shower and then start dinner.
Foods I'm making this week (with links to recipes)
Daily breakfast: Eggs and oats
Modified by doubling the vanilla, adding brown sugar and lots of cinnamon
Lunch for the week (Lentil soup recipe):
Dinner recipes (can also use leftovers for lunches)
Lemon Ricotta Pasta (I also served with chicken breast sauteed in a pan)
Crock pot chicken fajitas
Garlic brown sugar chicken with brussels sprout and potatoes
**Chicken recipe missing oil to saute. Can use garlic powder if you don't have garlic.
**Used cut up yukon gold potatoes instead and frozen brussels sprouts
Chicken Kale Casserole
As for the second paragraph, think of it as a lifestyle change, not a diet. No foods are off limits- you just need to learn portion control with less-health foods. Check sparkrecipes.
As for tonight, make some frozen (or canned or fresh) vegetables, saute some chicken with salt/pepper/garlic powder/whatever you want and call it dinner. Even if the chicken is frozen, defrosting it in water and getting it on the table won't take longer than an hour from frozen to finished.
