How timely, I have a rotisserie chicken on my list for today's weekly trip grocery shopping. It makes fixing dinner much easier since I'm already getting home late due to shopping after work.

“I wish I had time to cook, but takeout is the only thing that works with my insane schedule".
Pick up a healthy main course and add quick sides at home. On days dieters eat out, they consume 226 more calories and 10 extra grams of fat, according to a study from the University of Texas at Austin. So try this smart twist: Head to the supermarket instead. If you look carefully, you’ll find several healthy options. Buy a cooked rotisserie chicken and serve it with five-minute whole-wheat couscous and frozen vegetables you make at home. (If you’re really time-crunched, grab veggies from the salad bar.) Or try a grilled salmon fillet from the prepared-foods section with a bagged salad and quinoa, a high-protein whole grain that’s ready to eat in 15 minutes. “Just steer clear of the ready-made casseroles, pasta dishes, and mayo-based salads,” says Elizabeth Ward, R.D., author of The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to the New Food Pyramids. “They tend to pack in hidden calories.”
Want a lighter meal? “Try a whole-grain roll and a broth-based soup from the deli counter (it’s lower in sodium than canned soup because it doesn’t need salt as a preservative), then toss in extra veggies or canned beans at home,” says Malia Curran, a nutrition consultant for Whole Foods Market.
