Where's my meal in a cube?

I'm terrible at eating. I'm not bad at cooking, but I'm lazy, and the benefits (tasty food) don't balace the effort (preparation, and cooking and cleaning). If sci-fi meal cubes existed, I would be very happy. What is the easiest way to ensure reasonably complete nutrition?

I don't get particularly bored of foods, I ate the same sandwich basically every day of my life until university. I am comfortable in the kitchen, and I enjoy cooking/baking when I want to cook/bake, but I need to eat more than once every other week or so. Occasionally I manage to do things like cook a week's worth of meals at once, but I can never manage to maintain it because of the time involved.
I would like things that are simple of the open package-(possibly heat)-consume type that aren't full of crap and will help give me a reasonably complete diet nutritionally. So please give me your handy helpful meal solutions. Shelf-stable and/or long expiration would be an added bonus.
Some things in the current rotation, if examples are helpful: Can of chickpeas and a jar of butter chicken sauce; bagel, egg, cheese; baby-carrots and hummus; baked potato. I used to add in Instant Breakfasts but have lately discovered that I can't drink large glasses of milk anymore.
