There are some parts of healthy meals that take much longer to cook than the rest and reheat well. For faster meals when you don't have much time you can pre-cook things like brown rice, wholewheat pasta, or dried beans and store them in the fridge in appropriate portions. If you do this on Sunday you have your staple items that take the longest to cook ready for the week so all you have to do is saute some veggies and lean protein to add to it!

I recently went to Sam's Club and bought frozen vegetables; chicken; cereals and breads in bulk of course. I vacuum sealed my breads in 2 or 3 bagels; 2 or 3 sandwich thins; frozen broccoli in 1 cup or 2 cup portions; precooked baby shrimp in 1 cup packages; and chicken pieces 4 per pack.
Saves money , saves time and will last longer if vacuum sealed. 128
