Sounds good to me.

Avoid processed food as much as possible and you can't go too far wrong IMHO.
Absolutely!

if your supermarket prepared the meal for you - BAD
if you bought the ingredients individually from your supermarket - GOOD
Cheaper, and way more yummy: mum-in-law's curry compared with microwaved curry???

A salad every day helps.
It all reverts back to olden times...an apple a day and what have you. Also, not so much a saying, more something written in somebody's letter from his mum (I can't remember who, some eminient Victorian): don't eat large meals late in the day. So "dinner" really should be eaten at "lunch" time, and only a light supper should be eaten at modern times dinner hour

Yep, it is best not to eat a large meal in the evening and best not to eat after about 7pm. Gives the body a chance to digest the food before bedtime.
Quite right, wise Sir Knight. Unless you have particularly animated nightmares, you're not going to wear off that vast pasta meal overnight!

Humans would never have developed the big brain if it wasn't for meat. We would still have climbed trees like other primates.

An apple a day might keep the pharmacist away: study
People who eat an apple every day are less likely to take prescription meds, a new study found.

An apple a day might not keep the doctor away, but it might help keep the pharmacist at bay, a new study suggests.

"Everybody thinks of the apple as a healthy food, and it is, but after adjusting for other variables we didn't find a difference in doctor visits between apple eaters and non-apple eaters," said Matthew Davis of the University of Michigan School of Nursing in Ann Arbor, who led the study.

Davis and colleagues set out to tackle a light-hearted question: is a proverb about apples that dates back to at least the 1800s really true?

To find the answer, they compared apple eaters to abstainers, using data from 8,399 U.S. adults who completed questionnaires between 2007 and 2010 as part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

Just 753 participants, or 9%, ate at least one small apple day. People who only consumed apples in the form of juice, applesauce or pie were considered non-apple eaters for the purposes of the study, Davis said.

Apple eaters in the study had higher educational attainment, were more likely to be from a racial or ethnic minority, and were less likely to smoke.


And at first blush, apple eaters seemed more likely to keep the doctor away, with fewer self-reported visits to health care providers. But the difference wasn't statistically significant after adjusting for socioeconomic factors and other health characteristics.

The apple eaters did appear to be significantly more likely to avoid prescription medications. ...
