Wondering how to cook…for one?

There’s no need to fall in that lonely rut of Lean Cuisines or canned soup. Takeout, fast food, or prepackaged dinners may be the easy option when you’re dining alone, but eating this way on a regular basis can lead to many health problems.

We know that it takes a little extra creativity and motivation sometimes to create a tasty dinner just for yourself. These tips for the solo cook will help you create the perfect dinner for one.

  • Get creative with leftovers, by using them for additional meals.
  • Use the ingredients you already have in your cupboard.
