I've recently started "big batch" cooking using modified recipes from a 30 day cooking book and recipes from my own healthy cookbooks. I spend one or two days cooking, freeze each meal with cooking instructions, and I'm set for two weeks at a time. It really helps eliminate those last-minute runs to the fast food place because dinner is already done!
Even though the book that inspired me is for once-a-month cooking, I only do once every two weeks. It fits my time schedule and budget better.

One time every week, alow yourself to go off your food tracking diet plan. Still eat the kinds of foods you know make you healthy, but dont worry about tracking the foods or staying on your diet. I stay away from fried foods and high fats, but allow myself to follow my cravings. It really helps!
Meals cooked to help you eat healthier throughout the week
I cook three meals on Sunday, that I know will be good til Wednesday. Sometimes, the meals that I cook Sunday evening can be converted to another meal, for Thursday evening. It helps on the budget and on eating out
