I'm all about both options.

As a bodybuilder, I eat LOTS of food. I keep nutritional content hig hand calories low, as at age 36, it's too easy for me to put on unwanted fat if I don;'t control the composition of what I eat. So, I stay on the "perimeter of the supermarket" and buy mostly fresh (lean) meats, fresh fruits and veggies (organic when possible and not too costly), lowfat organic dairy products (because recombinant bovine somatotropin is posion, and tastes like shit, thank you USDA, fucking idiots), and of course whole grain breads from the bakery. With a good blend of whole, raw foods, its not too difficult to whip something together that is tasty, healthy, and even nice to look at. The more color in your dishes, the more micronutrients you are getting from the fruits and veggies.

I don't do this much, but when I do, I tend to order stuff I would not cook at home. You can save alot of fat if you do some simple things. For breakfast, ask that the breakfust sandwich/biscuit/muffin you are buying doesn't get rolled in butter. Eat a double burger with no cheese, upping the protein and lowering the carb ratio, and load it with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, etc. and hold the mayo, that's a good muscle sammich' if ever there was one. Stay away from sodas. Man, it kills me to see people slurping down 5, 6, 7 sodas a day, that stuff goes right to your waist.

Sometimes you can make something that is not exactly "cooking" but fun, like the blonde sangria I made yesterday:
