How can I learn how to cook healthy easy stuff without having that gift that some people have when throwing stuff together? No time or money for lessons. And get freaked out when cooking meat, chicken, fish, etc b/c I never feel like they are done enough and end up over cooking.
Second, What are some simple, quick , easy, healthy things I can make for lunch for the 2.5 year old while a 2 month old is around as well?

Try and watch some cooking shows, it will help you learn tricks and techniques. Some of my favs on the food network are The Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. On the Cooking channel I love Jaime at Home... you won't like all the things they make, but you'll learn chopping techniques, how to tell when things are done, what tools to use, etc. For a beginner cook, you may have some luck with Semi-Homemade on the Food Network. And while I can't stand Rachel Ray, her shows would probably give you great tips as well. Once you are feeling confident to try something, definitely try out http://www.allrecipes.com/ they have great recipes that have been rated, I won't even try a recipe unless it has 4.5 stars...and if you read the reviews, you get tons of tips. You can search recipes all different ways, main dishes, side dishes, slow cooker, ingredients you have on hand, etc...
