Please help me plan my daily meal times/menus given my long work hours.

I'm running one of my family's stores and work from about 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. , Monday through Friday. This means I often dont' get home until after 8 and I still have to have dinner. I've got a sensitive stomach and generally, eating this late results in me waking up the next morning with tummy ache.
Is there a way I might schedule my meals so that I don't wake with the sour stomach? Anyone have any suggestions on light, wholesome and easy to prepare meals that I can make when I get home? Also, I'm thinking that I might resort to frozen, organic meals for lunch during the week. Maybe something like Amy's Organic? I know they're packed with salt but honestly, I just don't have time to cook and I figure the frozen meal option, coupled with a green salad, is at least slightly healthier than eating out each day.
Cooking large meals on the weekends is out. I have to have a life some time.
