I have tried planning my meals. It doesn't seem to work for me. Things pop up in my life so often that I'm not really home or am to exhausted to cook. I like to eat fresh foods and they seem to spoil by the time I have a chance or even want to fix anything. I feel like my money is going down the drain.
I know what you mean. Fortunately I have an attendant to cook for me, but the recipes are things that I got out of books I used to have. So, technically I won't do much actual cooking myself, because I have to deal with a disability that makes it difficult to control the muscles in my hands, so I can't really chop stuff for the recipes, but I can stir whatever's in the pot/pan or maybe flip food over, if it's not in hot oil. I like low-fat, low-sodium recipes personally. I have a bunch of recipes that I might be able to email to you or anyone that's interested. Good luck with your goals.

That's the real issue here. I love to eat healthy food but getting myself to cook is a real challenge, especially after a long day. My goal is to actually plan a week's worth of meals and cook several of them on Sunday to prepare for the week ahead.
