I don't just feed them microwavable food,i do cook a lot.

Well, if you're a fan of pasta, try the veggetti. It turns common vegetables into pasta. And you're getting nutritious food vs. The carb overload that it makes for a dinner meal

Im not sure about feeding toddlers, but for you a good balanced meal should consist of protein (meat, cheese, soy, beans, etc) with a carb source (rice, pasta, bread) and vegetables. Stir fries, pasta and meatballs, omelets, home made pizza and others can all incorporate those components.

A lot of grocery stores have frozen healthy options on the cheap, just check the heath labels. Frozen veggies can be a very cheap and convenient item to buy. There are a lot of sources that can help you find meals on the web, just Google things you like and healthy etc. Good luck!

Also look up the volumetric diets. You don't have to give up any foods, just a way to understand portion control and what food groups to focus on. I understand working nights it's hard to adjust to the schedule for both of you so your man can have a dinner meal while you eat breakfast. They have great recipes too.

No problem, I literally have tried multiple diets, and they work. But sticking to them was more of a challenge, especially over long time frames as part of a lifestyle. This is the only one that stuck to me. Its reasonably easy, and I understand why we eat what in a basic, non chemistry formula lol.
