I can truly relate to your dilemma; I've been vegetarian (mostly vegan)
for almost a year, and still go through times when I just don't know what
to eat. Probably the best advice I've gotten from this list is to make
LOTS of whatever you cook, then freeze leftovers in 1-meal servings. That
goes for components of meals, too: rice, beans, etc. It's much easier to
warm them up than to cook them from scratch each time. I also use canned
beans most of the time. I'm perhaps the laziest person in the world, and
would probably just live on cereal and fatfree soy milk if there weren't
plenty of canned and frozen stuff to use!
Also, don't feel as though you have to make several dishes for each meal.
A big bowl of something delicious and nutritious will be just as
satisfying--and much easier. Good luck!
