I used to cook a batch of spaghetti in a BIG bowl and munch on it for a week. The the next week I'd cook up a bunch of chicken and eat on that for a week. The girlfriends parents on Sunday's and back to the "not really interested in food week." boy I was skinny then, still am. Oh well but I eat much better these days. It's survival man!

Well for days you want to be quick, there's the ever popular spaghetti night, just buy a pack of noodles, sauce, and and meatballs from costco. Cook the noodles, defrost the meatballs, and heat and mix in with the sauce and you're done.

If you have enough time and are into curry (this one is made really easy if you have access to a rice cooker). Cooking rice and a large pot of curry is always good. Depending on what area you are in, it may or may not be easy to get some curry mix, I prefer the golden curry brand myself. They also have the pre-made packs with vegetables if you are truly lazy, if not, just cut up potatoes, carrots, and onions and your favorite protein, I prefer chicken, and pre cook them, then boil water with the stuff in it, add in curry cubes and you're good to go for a few days.

My apartment's secret indulgence is cooking chicken thighs...chicken breasts just get too dry sometimes :-P marinate the chicken thighs in garlic salt, garlic powder, soy sauce, black pepper, onion powder, and a generous helping of sriracha sauce, then cook, eat with rice and it's awesome, if a bit more on the unhealthy side, you can try it with chicken breasts if you want. This one is pretty lenient with the seasonings so just trial and error until you find some combination that suits your tastes.

Velveeta Mac n cheese, ground beef, diced onion. Good to go!

Subway everyday is fine as long as you don't eat the bread every time. Switch to salad bowl every so often.
