I think what helps me the most is just routine. Eating the same thing for lunch and breakfast most days helps keep me on a routine so I don't have a lot of choices or have to think too much about what I'm going to eat. Might sound boring to some, but generally works for me. And Barb, I do the same thing with my salads. I cut up my lettuce for the week. Sometimes I go ahead and chop up my green peppers and carrots and go ahead and mix it with my baby spinach ahead of time, but other times I mix it the night before or that morning, but somehow having that lettuce already washed and cut up helps. I really don't cook a whole lot, so when I do, I cook larger quantities and freeze it for meals later. I often just pull out a piece of chicken I cooked at another time and cook a baked potato and some veggies to go with it. I do try to vary my dinners some since I eat basically the same thing for most lunches and breakfasts.
Count your blessings!
