Cooking for one...

Monday, February 06, 2012

So my friend's mom is in town for a month and she makes some very tasty but unhealthy southern food. Even when she isnt here Becca doesnt do healthy eating, she is more of a fast food/frozen dinner kind of girl. Any suggestions for healthy cooking for one person??

    have all the salad ingredients in your frig you can think of.. have a salad everyday for lunch or get some good whole grain bread and use those ingredients for yummy sandwiches...

    tuna is always good to have on hand

    Thanks Val. I'll definitely look online and cooking for two is a really good idea.

    I would cook for two and split the meals so you have lunch or dinner again. I would also consider checking online for some good ideas. Soup and salad is also a good option.

    If you pick up a WW magazine, they have sections with recipes for just one person. Another option is to make a normal recipe, divide it up and pull it out as needed. There's also always the soup/salad/sandwich route. Personally I like the following: one serving cooked rice/couscous (anywhere from 1/4 cup to a cup depending on my hunger level), salsa, lettuce, veggies and 1/2 cup beans of your choice. You can add chicken, tuna, whatever. It's quick, easy and it's kind of like getting a burrito bowl from Chipotle.
