Meal planning is always a problem for me, and trying to plan healthy meals makes me even more food obsessed-what ot buy what to make etc. So for now I am relying on Lean Cuisine dinners. I'm freed up, don't have to plan as much and am no longer obsessed with meals, what to eat etc.

If you have a wegmans nearby, you need to pick up their "thai" veggie broth. It's vegetarian, and can be used in place of any vegetable/chicken/beef broth, but it has an explosive flavor - lemongrass, spice, etc. I use it to make simple dishes like lentils or rice taste out of this world!
(and when they are so tasy, it becomes easy to turn a side dish into a cheap, easy meal)
I keep a small journal style notebook in my kitchen. When I fix a quick, easy meal I jot down the ingredients and instructions in the notebook. When I am in a hurry and can't decide what to cook, I can just flip through the notebook to remind myself of quick easy meals
