Is there is too much of this in your life?
Microwave dinners and fast food may be quick and easy meal options in your busy life, but these eventually take a toll on your physical and mental health.
With less money and just a little more time, you can have fun creating your own healthy and nutritious meals for one!
Make A Plan
Identify what you have and plan your meals before shopping for groceries.
At the grocery store:
Stock up on non-perishable staples.
Look for shortcuts like washed and pre-chopped vegetables.
Buy ingredients you can use for multiple meals.
Get familiar with some easy recipes for quick and no-fuss meals!
Do a quick Google search for simple, fast, healthy recipes to fall back on. Yummy!
Adapt & Experiment
Don't be afraid to mix it up with:
whatever else you have on hand!
You don't have to please anyone but yourself!
You are tired and hungry after a long day at work. You find leftover roast beef and a bag of chopped veggies in the fridge. You already ate out for lunch. What do you do for dinner?

Keep this accessible in your cooking space or your phone.
Make a two-person meal and eat the leftovers the next day
Cook multiple portions and freeze the leftovers
Invite a friend to join you for dinner
