With over 7, 325 dinners for one under my belt - I've developed more than a few tips!
Added to that I've talked to and gotten tips from a huge number of solo cooks. Hopefully that means you will find anything you need help with right here. If not, I've probably thought about it, just not written about it yet!
If you can't find information that helps you, use this form to leave a note and I'll make it a priority.

Unedited, real meals! Each week I do a round up of meals I've cooked and eaten during the week. It helps keep me on track (there are only so many times I can post cereal for dinner in a public forum!) - and might provide you with a few ideas.
The message out of this week’s menu plan is that it’s never too late to start. I didn’t get around to doing any menu planning or meal prep until Wednesday, but it was still totally worth it.
This week's menu plan is super simple as I’m out 4 nights this week. Luckily I still have a store of freezer meals so I’m going to rely on them. Means I don’t have to shop much, but will still eat healthily.
Healthy, somewhat hearty and interesting are the drivers behind this week's plan. After last week's poor effort at following through on my menu plan, I want to increase my chances of eating well.
