I enjoyed listening to Dan Barber and Krista, but commiserated with those who have little time or energy to cook for themselves. I work full-time and am usually tired and hungry when I get home, so what I've been doing for years is spending a few hours on Saturday or Sunday cooking for the week. It usually gets me through Wednesday and then I switch to a healthy frozen dinner or something easy to throw together, or do take-out.  I live by the 80% rule, so it's not always the healthiest, but the stress from trying to be a perfectionist isn't healthy either! The food I prepare is very simple, with lots vegetables. It's harder when you have picky eaters in the family, but I cook for just myself, so it works.
