Getting All The Nutrients
First, you need to make sure that you are getting all the nutrients that you need. When you make your breakfast, lunch and dinner, you need to ensure that you are putting a mixture of fruits and vegetables in there when you can. The more you can pack in, the healthier your meal is going to be. Do some research into the specific nutrients of food that you eat regularly, and decide whether it's dense enough in these nutrients. If not, then try to find another food that you like, and see what you can do with this.
Of course, meals should not only be about nutrients. They need to be tasty or you’re not going to want to eat them. Plain baked chicken for example with some vegetables does not a thrilling meal make.
