Cooking for two can be tricky, especially if one is eating healthy and controlled portions and the other--isn't. I look for healthy, well-balanced one-dish meals like casseroles, soups and skillet meals that feed four. My hubby requires nearly twice as many calories as I do, and could stand to lose a few pounds too, but hates me trying to manage his food. When I cook a meal for four, I carefully measure the portions, putting away one for tomorrow's lunch (secret #1) and serving my plate with
another. Now I can put a dish in front of him for him to serve as much as he likes. He usually cleans it up, and thinks he's getting away with something. But he's losing weight steadily too, even if it is slow.
