I am single and still batch cook and use large crockpots (batchcooking saves kitchen time), and create freezer meals (like 2 lasagnas instead of one, to bake a frozen raw one later etc). I only cook from scratch. I rarely eat the same thing every day though. Usually I portion the soup from the crockpot, or the lasagna from the oven, into one serving and freeze.

When the freezer gets full, then I stop cooking, and don't buy anything but fresh produce til I empty the freezer. This saves sooooo much time and money . . . my grocery bill is practically zero those weeks. Let me tell you, I LOVE those weeks.

After awhile I learned what I did and didn't like to eat, reheated or baked out of the freezer.

Then I gave myself permission to never batchcook that again and never put it in single servings in the freezer again.

And I don't.

If I'm craving it, but find it unappetizing from the freezer, I remember that and I make the regular recipe, or, half the recipe; no doubling etc. So then it becomes a treat, something nice I do for myself as a pampering thing.

But 99% I batchcook, make double and triple for freezer meals, use the largest crockpot, etc.

My problem is eating healthy when I am the only one in the home now. When I make white turkey chili, for example, I am eating it for a WHOLE WEEK. It gets tiring. I know, I should half the recipe, but I tend to feel like if I am cooking, I am cooking a bunch ha. HELP.

My friends call me Beegee. My best friend has the same first name as me (high school buddies) so they call me by my initials ha.
