Cream of mushroom chicken kit meal (about 5 servings)
 
1 cup dry wild or brown rice, cooked with package directions
2 chicken breasts, cubed and sauteed in a smidge of olive oil and salt
1 can condensed low-fat campbell's cream of mushroom soup.
Cooked vegetable of choice (summer squash is good)
 
When chicken is done, add water to pan to fill maybe 1/2 an inch.  Then add condensed soup.  Stir and bubble until you are happy.  Remove from heat before the smoke alarm goes off.  Divide rice into five glad plasticware containers.  Add soupy chicken, also divided.  Add squash on top.  Lasts at least four days in the refrigerator. 
 
Tuna kit meal - 4 servings  (a true kit meal, requiring no fresh ingredients. Perfect for the grocery shop-aphobic.  Also extremely cheap.  Yee hah.)
1-2  cans light tuna (or albacore, but watch the mercury)
1 small can sliced or diced black olives
1  14 or 20oz or whatever you have can diced, crushed, whole tomatoes
4 servings pasta, cooked
garlic (minced, fresh or dried)
basil (fresh or dried)
1 anchovy (really!  It melts away, I promise).
salt and pepper to taste
 
 Drain tuna and olives.  In frying pan, warm minced garlic with smidge of olive oil.  Add anchovy and watch it melt.  Fun.  Add tomato.  Add tuna, olives, salt, pepper, and basil.  Cook until thick enough for you.  Divide cooked pasta into plasticware containers.  Divide sauce into four sections and add to pasta.  Voila.  I've had this after a week in the refrigerator and it seemed fine to me.  And I have a horror of past date foods.
 
Cottage cheese and yogurt
 
1/2 cup 1% fat cottage cheese
3/4-1 cup fat free yogurt, any flavor
 
Mix.  Eat.  Yum.  Balanced protein carb, good portion size, who could ask for anything better?  Well, since you asked, if you want to get fancy, you can dice up a small granny smith apple, add cinnamon and nutmeg, and nuke it for about a minute.  Cool, then add the yogurt/cottage cheese stuff.  I got this idea from Melanie on bodyforlife women's club.
 
Shrimp Fried Rice (post-shopping trip to Trader Joe's Recipe)
5 servings of cooked, frozen shrimp (one package at Trader Joe's)
1 cup (dry) brown rice, cooked to manufacturers specifications
4 egg whites, one yolk
frozen stir fry vegetables
salt, pepper, and sesame oil
soy sauce if you like
 
Thaw veggies in microwave or steam them.  Thaw shrimp under running warm water (or you can add uncooked shrimp). Warm pan with about a tablespoon of sesame oil.  Add eggs and scramble in pan.  Increase heat.  Add rice, vegetables, and shrimp. Stir and sizzle.  Season to taste.  Makes 5 servings almost as good as takeout.  Eat over the very next few days.

*I am a terrible cook.  My first year of living in my current apartment I didn't even know the circuit breaker to my oven was turned off.  In college my favorite meal was a raspberry fig newton.  My second favorite meal was "cool whip comfort" - serving-spoon-size splat of cool whip, dash of cinnamon, granular sugar (to taste), bread crumbs (plain) to taste.  My meals are meant to be easy, quick, and divided up into glad plastic containers to take with me to work.  If that's your kind of meal, then proceed with caution.
