I like getting tips from the 2-week eating plans in "Clean Eating" magazine. I don't follow the plans exactly, but each meal seems to be geared for one person (though sometimes, each meal has far more food than I can eat in one sitting).

Depending on what the food is, I often cook a whole recipe of something and save the rest in the fridge or freezer for later. Or I'll do the math and halve or quarter the recipe to make enough for just one or two meals.

Hi Tera and welcome.

I agree with Birgit, soups make a great meal-in-a-bowl for one. Make your soup with rice or whole-wheat pasta, beans and or other protein, and keep in the fridge or freezer in single portions.
Casseroles are also great for that...and super easy to heat up when you get home from work or the gym.

Also, keep cooked brown rice, quinoa and/or whole-wheat pasta cooked, and packed in portions for one...you can always add steamed veggies, pan-fried tofu, tempeh or seitan for a quick and healthful meal.

I don't feel like cooking sometimes and just make a lot of main dish salads with lots of raw veggies. The other thing that's always easy to make is soup. Put in whatever veggies you have, the more variety the better.

Hey y'all, I'm new to this team and trying to eat clean. I've done it in the past but I always ate the same thing over and over; chicken breast with veggies and brown rice, bison burgers with veggies, turkey breast on flat bread...and it got boring fast! I'm single so I'm only cooking for one which is good sometimes but when I cook from recipes I always waste food because it makes so much.Do y'all have any tips or ideas for cooking for one? Needless to say, I'm not much of a cook. :-)

Any tips welcome!!
