I've been posting a few all-in-one meal ideas, lately. Busy life, no time to plan, cook or eat! I have to keep it simple! I haven't been able to eat a whole day's worth of any of these dishes, yet, so I have a nice little stock pile in my fridge and freezer. Rice dishes, tuna/pasta salad. Hoping to make some chili today and lasagna tomorrow. :-) Added bonus, now my son asked if he could have some of the tuna/pasta salad. He's eating healthier already, too, and doesn't even know it!
The key is to keep the portions in check with recommended daily allowances. Portion it well, while making it, then the only thing that needs to be kept in mind is how much is being eaten through the day. :-D

I've started using the "Nutrition Notes" toward the bottom of the "My Nutrition" page to (a) track what times I eat my 5-6 meals a day, and (b) track what new foods (or in my case, protein bars) I've tried and whether I liked them or not. This makes it easier when trying to remember whether I liked a particular flavor, and whether I should buy it again or not. WAY easier than scrolling through each day because you can print a "Nutrition Notes Report". SO HANDY!!!
Simply click the "See Notes Report" button and select the dates you wish to view.
I try to eat only things that are pretty easily quantifiable. If I can't log it into my Nutrition Tracker or determine the nutrition value, I don't eat it. Of course, this doesn't always work, but if I make it my general rule, it simplifies my nutrition tracking, making it easier to watch my calories.
