Eating fresh usually means a bit of veggie prep. I find that doing all the prep in the morning/afternoon and putting it in a bowl w/ a lid saves me tons of time in the evening. I marinade my proteins then too. In the fridge w/ it, & when I get home from work late in the evening dinner is a snap!
Prepping vegetables and precooking quinoa and yams for example, once a week allows me to choose wisely when it's mealtime. I have divided my fridge into healthy carbs on one side, and healthy lean protein on the other. Also, I keep a small food scale on the kitchen counter so I can always portion my food. Every morning I fill 2 water pitchers that I can drink throughout the day.
