Oh I just love finding others who are having difficulties cooking for just two people. My husbands food tastes are so different from mine I end up several days a week cooking two separate meals because he won't eat my nourishing healthy rabbit food and I won't eat his fat loaded carb and cholesterol foods. I'm the Jack Sprat who could eat no fat and he can eat no lean. He has a fast metabolism and never gains weight of gets sick and I just look at a chocolate bar and put on half a pound. I can go up and down within 3 lbs. a week if I am not carefully considering every mouthful I eat and I get so frustrated with having to plan every thing I eat to make sure I have the right amount of nutrients and balances figured out. I wish I could be more like him and eat anything and for years that's just what I did. I topped up at 223 and realized I looked like a sumo wrestler than an attractive woman I used to be. So for the last 14 years I have been slowly working my way back to the within normal range of weight. I'm getting closer but it has been a long road and at times I have given up and just let myself go. This is my second try with SP after trying so many others I came back to what I felt worked the best for me. I hope to learn some good healthy recipes for two that my husband will enjoy eating with me and that will still give me the nutrition and balance to fit in with my weight loss needs.

To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

Welcome, I have found several good recipes here. I learn to cook once and morph it into something different. If the recipe serves 4 there are leftovers for work lunches or the next nights supper. Still you can't make homemade lasagna for 2 so I know your dilemma. Best wish for a healthier, you!
Every day is a GIFT!
