Hi - I have a 2 year old as well - and work full time, however, my husband is a SAHD and has realized the importance of what we eat (that's another story). Anyway, he mostly does the grocery shopping/cooking, but I can tell you a few things we do.
We've changed, for example, from sausage to turkey sausage, hamburger meat we upped from 80/20 to 85/15 (or something). He makes the turkey sausage often and we have with beans (green or whatever) and potatos (two sides). I just limit the amount of my portions. Luckily my daughter isn't too picky -she just doesn't like hamburger meat, unless dipped in ranch or bbq sauce - try that!
We also have fruit for desert - like watermelon or grapes or cantelope. Sometimes a mini choco cupcake.
Try the Carving Board meats - it's in sandwhich meat section. We've actually split one package for the 3 of us for our meat at dinner time. Just warm it up - serve with some sides. It's good. Sometimes we do grilled-cheese - try w/ ham! Get's boring, but it works for us.

I find it so hard to stay on a good eating course. My 2 year old is so picky, doesn't like any vegetables except French fries (technically not a vegetable haha) and will often refuse food that she liked the day before. Since I am so tired after coming home from work we will often eat something that we all know she likes, things like chicken nuggets or hot dogs or spaghetti. I don't have a lot of time to make separate meals for us and I don't want to say "eat this stir fry or nothing" to my daughter either. HELP, this is a big factor in why my weight loss doesn't progress as fast as it should be! Any ideas are greatly appreciated
