You definitely want a routine, but it doesn't have to mean the same food every day! Eating a healthy balanced meal for dinner is a routine. You can still have an entirely new meal every single day smile.

You're welcome to post your food journal here if you'd want, we are happy to provide cheerleading! Definitely it helps to journal, however you do it.

Even if you cook ahead, you could just cook a "roast chicken" ahead and then use that meat in an enormous variety of ways with wildly different flavors smile.
