Hi I'm new and also eat alone. I don't have a car so I do my shopping once every two weeks, I also work and have to brown bag every thing. I shop at Costco quite a bit. Any resources?

I thank Creator for the ways of creation.
For eyes to see the beauty of creation.
For ears to hear the sounds of creation.
For the heart to understand the ways of Creator
For hands to touch
For words to teach little ones the ways of Creator
I pray for love for all our relations.

One thing that helps me tremendously is the bags of chicken breasts. Each breast is individually frozen, so can be thawed one at a time. This is great for cooking for one. Other options are to go with a simple recipe that feeds more, but can be changed as the week goes on. For example, grill or broil 2-4 chicken breasts. The first night have them as made. The second night melt a slice of tomato and cheese on it in the oven (2-3 minutes only because it's already cooked) and serve with whole grain rice. The next night take the third one and make chicken fried rice. Just cut the chicken in bite sized chunks and cook some frozen peas in a skillet. Add the leftover rice and chicken and some sauce and you have a totally different dish. If you cooked a third, make chicken salad and serve in Bibb lettuce wraps.

I live alone and I would like to be a menu planner, however it is hard to cook for just one person. if anyone knows how to menu plan for one and have good but cheap and healthy recipes I would like to hear from them. I am on a fixed income and need all the help I can get. I am trying to lose 50 pounds and I work out 6 days of the week. feel free to send me anything just as long as it will help and does not cost that much and is healthy. emoticon

slowly but surely I will get to where I am going.
