In a snack-size Zip-lock bag place 1/2 cup instant oatmeal, 1/8 cup raisins, 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, seal the bag. Prepare as many as you wish and take to work (keeps well in desk drawer). Empty the bag into a cup or mug, add 1/2 cup hot water, stir well and have a satisfying meal or snack for under 300 calories and less than $1.00.
Simple kindness to one's self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.

When I was single I often made things that would freeze well at the regular quantity and then froze them so I could just take them out and have them again. It kept me from having to eat leftovers for days, gave me a variety, and kept me from eating out so much.
Don't make someone a priority when your not even one of their options....
When you feel like giving up remember why you held on so long in the first place.
What a great idea, my husband and I still cook for 4-5 and end up with leftovers forever!

Single serving recipes are easy to make for more & still not have leftovers........unless you choose to have. Since I live alone, I try to find single serving recipes that I like. I usually make two servings & save one of them for the next day. I will share a couple of them now in case you're interested & will share more later. I hope you will also share some 1-2 serving recipes.
