I mostly cook Indian food at home with occassional treats of pizza/noodles for the kids. So my meal plan will be mostly rice/dal/sambar/rasam with roti/dal/paneer and legumes.
Meal planning, something i have been doing from last year. I feel less tensed when i have a plan chartered to sail through the busy mornings. Also at the same time, meal planning saves a lot in grocery shopping. You will not buy anything unnecessary. I usualy buy the grocery and then plan the meals, so it is easy for me to work with whatever i have at home.
I try to make a balanced meal at home, but that doesn’t mean it is boring. Sandwich/burgers with cheese and veggies at home is lot more healthier than the store-bought. Homemade pizzas tastes equally better than the store ones. It is about the choice you make, we made a choice of less processed, less take-aways or eatouts, though we still eat out, but it has redued drastically.
