I need help learning to plan meals, both to improve nutrition and cut down on costs. I don't want general advice or strategies so much as specific guides and menus. What's out there? [more inside]

Does anyone have any suggestions for quick and easy organic

My watercooler at work has a hot water feature which I would like to take advantage of. What are the best healthy substantial "meals" that require me only to add hot water?
(Relevant info: At a cafe I used to frequent, there were packets of Bear Naked blueberry oatmeal that were outstanding. Now, Bear Naked's site doesn't list this as one of their products. Does this product still exist? I don't like Quaker Oats.)

I'm a health-conscious college student who would like to spend less money eating out. The problem is I don't have much time, or resources (like a full scale kitchen), to prepare "real" meals.
Ideally, I would like something that I could cook in bulk and then take with me to microwave at work for lunch, or at home for dinner. But I'll need some variety.
Keep in mind, I prefer vegetarian dishes and maybe an occasional fish meal. Absolutely no red meat. :) Low in saturated fat, and easy on the budget.
Any ideas are welcome.

I have a four year old son who simply refuses to eat his meals in a timely fashion. This has been an ongoing problem since he was two years old and we've been trying various approaches, but have mainly been hoping that he grows out of it. But it's at the point that every single meal has become unpleasant because of his refusal to eat. [more inside]

It's late, you're starving and the only store open within striking distance is a 7-11. Is it possible to throw together a decent and fairly healthy meal exclusively from your local convenience store?
