    OK, to get things started I cheat. I'm single, diabetic, and lazy in a good way. I am sensitive to carbs (keep it to about 35g a meal) raising glucose levels too fast or high. So, Breakfast is 8oz whole milk, banana & some kind of protein - usually egg whites in my poacher thingy. Snack - apple. Lunch Half ham sandwich w/ cheese & peanuts. Snack - apple. 2nd snack - banana. Dinner 2-boiled eggs whites only, peanuts, the other sandwich half. Snack - apple or banana with peanuts. Before bed snack cup of ice cream or mini bag popcorn. And, water, water, water. But, I cheat sometimes and then it is fast food like my greatest weakness - small pizza (2-slices thin crust, so it is really 3 meals).

    Easy -- I married a chef. While I don't have to stress about any meals (or cook them), he doesn't either. Most of our meals are relatively simple, and he generally plans out for a week or two ahead when we go shopping. That way if there is anything in the freezer that needs to thaw, he can get it out first thing in the morning when he's already in there getting out coffee beans. He thoroughly cleans the kitchen every morning, so by dinner it's just a matter of setting out all of the ingredients, all of the necessary dishes, and throwing it together. His favorite spices are already in the rack right by the stove, and those seem to be decided on the spur of the moment. I have yet to see him stress out about any meal, and he thoroughly enjoys doing the cooking. We also get our produce from Bountiful Baskets (a rapidly-growing co-op in the US) so oftentimes what we get in our basket dictates the choices we have for upcoming meals.
