    It's not that hard to make your own fresh foods from scratch. Takes less time than it does to earn the money slaving away at some soul-sucking job to purchase the frozen dinners, nuke them, peel off the plastic (which has now saturated your food with little bits of polymers and resins) and burn your tongue on the reconstituted dehydrated vegetable particles.

    This is kind of philosophical but the convenience itself is a trap in my experience. Eating a container of non-specific "beef", "onion", etc. might fool my tongue but the rest of me feels cheated and preoccupied until I have a proper meal so I end up with excess anyway.

    I highly recommend avoiding those things at all costs. Highly processed, full of salt and other preservatives. Cooking might take a bit more time, but with preparation and planning in advance, you shouldn't have too much of an issue.
