I cook all my meals on Sunday for the week ahead. Everything from the main meal to the veggies.... (for veggies I just par boil them so that when I re-heat they are perfect) I make a HUGE salad too and store it in Zip lock baggies with a piece of paper towel to soak up the excess moisture.
This helps me immensely during the busy work week and gives me more time to get out and exercise. My Teens can start getting dinner ready while I get my run in and when I get home its all ready.

The number one thing that worked for me was cooking ahead on weekends so that I have food prepped for the week, having breakfast ready the night before, packing my lunch & snacks, and have dinner menu planned ahead of time. It keps me from the drive-thru & mindless eating!
