It's funny you mention this. As I absolutely despise cooking, the only thing I eat is frozen food
My diet includes lots of white rice two times a day mixed with canned beans. I need to change this. I have managed to stay healthy so far thanks to exercise, but as I have developed runners knee due to excessive jogging, I haven't been able to run for 6 months now! I am trying to compensate by weight training though.
lol your diet sounds terrible (sorry)
Well I actually love to cook. I love to eat more though
But I have good discipline when it comes to picking healthy foods over unhealthy, as well as portion control. I feel like diet has a lot to say for overall health and well-being, this is something I notice especially because I have been suffering from chronic fatigue for a number of years. I noticed this over Christmas that when I had been eating crap for a while I felt so much worse. When I started eating more healthy again my energy levels rose and I felt much better. But of course, I don't like being too strict. If I feel like having some ice cream (which I love!) I'll have a scoop or two, but I won't down a whole Ben&Jerry's by myself to put it that way
I try to find healthier alternatives to unhealthy foods as well. For instance I just got a Philips Air fryer for Christmas, so now I have been cooking myself oil-free potato fries and chicken nuggets haha
I can really recommend it if you love things like McDonalds but want to try a healthier alternative.

That's very sexy. I like girls like this. Can cook and eat healthy but are not afraid to eat a Pizza. Just not every day. Its also called common sense but not many people have it anymore. My ex-girlfriend was just eating the same 1-2 meals because she couldn't cook. And going out with her was a pain because if it's outside her "meal range" which included a few things, she didn't like it. I'm glad I found now the opposite I can chain in the kitchen and she likes it.
I think food can really bring a couple closer. Going out together, trying new meals, or just cooking together at home. A man that can cook or is willing to at least try is sexy. But yeah, like you say, it needs to be a balance. Healthy for the most part, then indulge every now and then. I think most people can manage to both stay in shape and love food if they put in the effort. Really, it doesn't even have to be that much effort. There's a lot of healthy meals out there that's great in taste, and there's a variety of foods to try.
