To keep myself on track for the week I cook several items on Sunday to use for quick meals during the week. I boil 6-8 eggs and keep them at eye level for quick breakfasts or snacks. I cook a couple of chicken breasts and cut them up for salads or wraps. I cook some dishes like salsa chicken and turkey meatballs. This has really helped on busy weeknights to know there is a quick meal at home and no excuses to pick up fast food.

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
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!
