thanks for sharing
Apartment has refrigerator/freezer side by side. No room for storage
Good article. Thank you.
I often enjoy cooking, even if for just one. I often challenge myself to make several meals out of one cooking time and freezing meals for those occasions when I work later than planned or may not really feel motived. Plus if I have a ready made meal at home it is easier to talk myself out of stopping somewhere unhealthy for a quick meal or ordering delivery. Some good suggestions in this article. Thanks
I always do batch cooking for myself. I love having leftovers and it’s so easy to add vegetables to protein that’s been cooked ahead. When all else fails, soup is a great way to convert all those odds and ends into another meal. With good planning and advance preparation I am rarely tempted by takeout
Thanks so much for the great planning ideas! I will definitely buy in bulk and separate as well as cook for more than one and freeze and measure the leftovers. This info helps me a great deal!
Great article for the single person.
Good ideas. Thanks.
Healthier than eating out / take out!
