A Complete Guide to Meal Planning for One

I’ve never actually lived alone. I had roommates all through college, moved back in with my parents for a year, then got married and immediately moved in with my hubs. However, my husband doesn’t eat potatoes, marinara sauce, any vegetables other than lettuce, soy sauce, apples, or bananas. I on the other hand have started cutting back on dairy products, processed cereals, and meats. Since there’s not a lot of overlap there, this often ends up with me creating two individual meals every night. So I’ve become somewhat of a pro at creating meals for one person since I do it twice a day.
