Meal planning and living alone



Recommended Posts

I think meal planning is easiest when you're alone/only preparing for yourself. No need to pay attention to any likes or dislikes except your own.

tupperware like stuff and the microwave are my best kitchen friends since a long time because I don't like to spend a lot of time for meal preparing. I steam batches of mixed vegetables and cook rice in the microwave and can store it in the containers I used for cooking in the fridge. I buy prepared mixed salad greens so I don't need to do the chopping and cleaning.

I agree, but I have always lived alone as an adult.

My grandmother was the opposite. She always cooked for an army, even when it was just she and my grandfather. She had a very difficult time once she was alone.

I have the same problem as you original poster! Also, my sleeve surgery enabled me to follow my dream of moving into an RV and traveling all over the country, and an RV is no place for leftovers LOL… The refrigerator and freezer are small and the kitchen is tiny. This has been a problem. I recently decided to go back to basics, which for me are primarily: yogurt, cheese, nuts, fruits, veggies and meat 2 to 3 times a week. Feeling better already!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
