Obviously cooking ahead is not working for you.

Given you work evenings, you could prepare something simple for yourself during the day for an early evening meal before you go to work, and on days off fix something to eat that is not time-consuming at all. On days off, perhaps make a simple pasta dish (or other casserole) in the morning to be baked in the oven later, or put on a pot of chicken soup, spaghetti sauce, etc. and allow it to simmer in a crock pot / slow cooker all day. If you don't have a slow cooker, one can be purchased very inexpensively and far less costly than throwing away food week after week.

It doesn't appear that you are in the right place on your search for recipes. You won't get the information you described from the Recipe Exchange, you will get recipes!

You may have to adapt some of them to your own tastes and triggers, though that isn't difficult to do at all.

Unless you are making soups, sauces, chili, etc that you can freeze, it's best to prepare your main meal fresh every day and keep it simple. This way you can also manage what you can and cannot handle on any given day.

There are many staple foods you can keep on hand in your pantry (bedroom, if necessary) that work well when seasoned to taste. Rice is a good staple for starters. I cook rice 1-2 times a week and put it in a zipper bag in the frig so that I always have cooked rice on hand for recipes or eating on the side. It keeps for days and warms nicely in the microwave.

There is no point in wasting money on fresh foods when you don't know how to prepare, don't have all of the ingredients, nor if you will be able to eat them before they spoil.
