How to plan balanced meals ... Probably the easiest thing to remember is this "create your plate" idea on ADA's web site (also used in the Sonoma diet, I think): http://www.diabetes.org/food-nutriti...your-plate.jsp

If you want something more concrete, you could try mypyramid.gov, Weight Watchers Points, or BFL (http://bodyforlife.com/nutrition/mealplan.asp).

An uncomplicated way of cooking is a George Foreman grill. Throw on some steaks/chicken/porkchops, steam some rice, and add a fresh salad and you have a meal.

Another good one is http://www.mediterrasian.com/.
