69. Ditto. It's not even hard.
I'm single, a full time student, work about 20 hours a week and don't have a dishwasher.

It takes like 10 minutes to make a huge batch of chili. Chop everything, bang it in a pot, let it cook for an hour while your study. Divide it into six things of tupperware and you have food for three days. That's less overall time than you would spend in line at McDonalds and is cheaper and healthier.

Dhal with rice takes even less time (like two minutes to pour things into water and then forty minutes to cook), freezes well and you can eat for the whole week on one batch for like .90 a meal.

Even if you don't batch cook you can do pasta in less time than it takes to get fast food once you add travel time and waiting in line.

And when you get off the fast food/junk food treadmill it's shocking how much more energy you have. It's like doubling the number of hours in the day.
