Grilled meat on salad is good for the hot weather. Steak sliced thin on a salad with mustard dressing...

I also do a lentil curry, two cans of lentels, a can of crushed pineapple (all drained) and carrots, onion, peas, and some fat free sour cream and curry powder etc. on rice.

Meatloaf in the crock pot - get a big batch of ground beef, do all the mixing before hand and form into loafs/lumps and freeze. Put it in the crock pot in the morning, turn it on and it's done.

Meatballs, same idea, make a big batch and freeze.

You can get some good ideas on the once a month cooking sites, things like making a big batch of taco meat (taco salad is fast that way) etc....

The pizza kits from costco (the crust and sauce) in the bread section are awesome too, load up the veggies!

Okay, so I don't really no how healthy this is (it isn't terrible for you, though?). It is SO delicious though - especially the salad thing, I could have eaten the whole thing. It was just amazing.

Oh yeah, I used Chicken for myself instead of Salmon (I'm not a big fan of Salmon) and it turned out really good.

Seriously, I can't tell you how delicious I found this meal. Publix has some awesomely delicious other recipes too! I have more, but can't think of them.

Souvlaki, greek salad. Veggies, olive oil, grilled meat. Healthier combo there isn't.

My friend makes meat balls with Teriyaki flavoring. It's just ground turkey with ginger and some onions.

Usually just the meatballs with a side is pretty filling. It may not be the healthiest but it's pretty filling without needing to eat a ton.

Slow cook boneless skinless chicken breasts, whole tomatoes, finely sliced peppers (we use some hot, some mild but it depends on what you like), finely sliced onions, minced basil/anise/parsley and sliced mushrooms. When it's done, pull apart the chicken and tomatoes with a fork, mix it up and serve it over either pasta or for a healthier option, barley or brown rice and top with cheese (I think romano is best) We make a bunch of this and freeze portions for easy dinners, it's actually best when it's reheated.

Not sure how healthy this is (my guess is not very) but spaghetti tacos are easy and AMAZING. Mac and cheese tacos are even better.

I usually try to stick to only have a meat + veggie at dinner, no sides or anything. Sometimes I do make a baked or mashed potato. A lot of it though, is portion control (but I am watching calories and I'm not sure that's what you're looking for).

Crockpot meals are also good. I need to find some more low-calorie recipes to make. I also love having the steamed veggies in a bag. I have no patience of cooking them on the stove and I can just throw them in the microwave and forget about them until they ding lol.

Just cooked up some onion, carrots with a touch of oil, added curry paste and then frozen peas and about a half cup of frozen pumpkin puree. A cup of chicken stock to help that melt down, then two cans of lentils (drained) and half a can of crushed pineapple. Served on rice.

You can season as needed and make it how you'd like, just did a big batch and some will be going into the freezer for dinner during the week (working a 40 hour week in 4 days, plus another job...).

dinosaur/dragon tails
take a ginormous zuchinni and slice into 3-4 in sections. cut out the spongy seeded core. stuff the center. set on end in a baking dish. pour tomato sauce over them all. bake for about 20 min. pull out and add a little shredded cheese to the top of each one. return to oven until cheese bakes into slightly browned crust.

stuffing is usually rice and some kind of leftover meat ideally shredded beef or pork from making enchiladas. you can add any combination of cheese, chili peppers, sweet peppers, corn, cooked black beans, tomato, spinach, kale, or peas.

i season the tomato sauce w/ garlic & some combination of rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, marjoram, cilantro & paprika.
