Two simple points I would like to live by:
2. quality over quantity
My unofficial mission is less microwave foods and more freshly cooked things. I eat way too many carb-y things (oatmeal, bread, bread, bread, pasta, couscous) and microwave things. Nothing beats the convenience of a microwave meal on a busy work and school day, but (also) nothing is quite as satisfying as something cooked from scratch (or assembled mostly from scratch).
