Meals Matter
This website is a great resource for meal planning and focuses on creating healthy options for shopping as well as for preparation. The Meals Matter site allows you to use recipes that are available on the website to create grocery shopping lists to ease the struggle of deciding what to eat or buy on the fly.  Additionally, the meal planning "help you establish a pattern of healthy food choices each week by providing a range of features to make planning healthy meals easier, such as nutrition articles, recipes, personalized cookbooks and shopping lists, as well as a meal planner to help plan your meals over time."
