Soba is one of my staples. Soba are Japanese buckwheat noodles. Cheap. SUPER easy to make. They are even simpler than spaghetti... no need to heat up a big batch of sauce. The best complement to soba noodles is dashi.. a kind of mild soy sauce.
In the past, I shunned cooking because it seemed too complicated, messy, and time consuming. But Im finding that food can be simplified, just like other areas of my life. No need for complex recipes. No need for time-consuming preparation.
Raw foods are the simplest, of course. An apple requires no prep whatsoever. Noodles, especially wholewheat, buckwheat, and the like.. are also very quick and easy.
With a tiny investment, you can buy a cheapo rice cooker and greatly expand the possibilities. When I cook rice, I usually add a package of tofu to the pot... and maybe veggies & soy sauce too. Hit the "on" button, and in thirty minutes you've got a meal...
This kind of cooking is far healthier than using over-processed microwavable crap. That shit is loaded with salt, sugar, and/or fat. Same goes for fast food restaurants.
Also, cooking like this is far cheaper. You pay a big price for processing. While organic whole foods may be a bit pricier than their pesticide-laden counterparts.. they are much cheaper than the packaged/processed stuff most people now eat.
Eat simply. Live simply. Be healthy.
