If you're looking for books, I recommend Cooks Illustrated cooking for 2 (or whatever they call it). The thing is they're not "healthy." That's not to say they're bad, just you might need to check nutrition info first and make some subs.

Also, if that doesn't work- have a dinner party! Make it a weekly/monthly thing where one friend cooks something for the crew.

Currently working and going to grad school. Given my stress level and time constraints (and with my doctor's blessing), I'm not trying to lose a lot of weight, just be healthy and not gain. Once I get my degree I'll pick things up again.

there is a SparkTeam called cooking for one and two, perhaps you could join that?

I use a menu planner that is made for two-person servings. There are many out there (for a fee) Dave Ramsey endorses one and Flylady endorses another. What's great about both of these is that they come with your grocery list too.

If I can't cut it in half, I'll cook the whole thing, portion it out before I serve it, and freeze the extra for future meals. An 8 serving recipe usually yields 3 meals for me and hubby - 1 serving for me, and 1+ a little more for hubby.

"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord,, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

So many of the recipes are for 8 servings. Is there a place to go for single-serving meals? Cutting meals in half doesn't always produce a great tasting meal.
