A few suggestions that might be along those lines...

Quick marinaded chicken in pitta bread with peppers and yoghurt

Super quick spaghetti and meatballs

Rice with prawns/chicken and chorizo

Hope this helps : )

Big green salad with chicken or fish

Green beans
Courgette slithers
Spinach wilted right at the end
Dress with a little oil and lemon

Ooh also, one pot chicken dinner. Cook chicken in a frying pan with stock, add peas, broccoli, onion, veg etc then sliced par boiled potatoes at the end and pop in the oven for a bit. Just sit and let it cook, chucking in the odd ingredient. Think there is a recipe for it on the Jamie Oliver website under French food.

Roast sausages and veg- shove cubed veg- peppers/squash/carrots/potatoes/parsnips in a roasting tin with sausages, add a tbl sp wholegrain mustard, a tblsp of oil and bake, turning once for an hour.

baked risotto worksshock ! Really, it does, google the many recipes- changed my life- just don't add too much cheese.

Roast a full red pepper and stuff with feta, mint and cous cous- two dishes admittedly, but delicious.

Soup- shove veg and lentils in pan with veg stock, leave for half hour, and blitz.

Red lentil and chickpea soup from BBC website is lovely.

Is easy cook rice okay? Because a packet of easy cook rice, peas and, broccoli, takes twenty minutes (adding peas and broccoli later) add soy sauce ang spring onions, and quickly wok with a whisked egg- egg fried rice smile yum

Sandwiches were my staple, but not that healthy tbhwink
