  • When cooking for one, I make a point to use plates and cutlery.  I was starting to eat out of the pan because it was easier.  Of course that meant that I had no portion control and I ate without enjoying it.
  • When cooking for one, you should be thinking about cooking portions for four. Eat one portion at once, save one for the next day and freeze two portions.
  • When shopping for one, try to find smaller packages so foods don’t go bad. Even if it is cheaper to buy in bulk, you waste money when you throw out food that has gone bad.
  • You can buy meat in the family pack and re-package them in smaller portions to freeze.
  • Buy reusable freeze containers that are the right size to freeze your meal portions in.

You deserve more than a quick meal out of a can or take out food.  Take time to prepare a meal and eat at a nicely set table.  It takes some effort but it reinforces that your meal time is to be enjoyed.  A meal is always better when shared with friends – so invite some friends over and have some fun.

    Oh my, this is so wonderful! My husband died Feb. 2015 and I have not been eating healthy. I know I should. I am constantly checking sites for recipes for two. Hopefully this year my meals will improve as I do like to cook, except I just can’t be bothered to do so just for me.
