Tips and recipes to cook for one

Are you one of those who lives alone and you do not know how to organize yourself? Do not worry! We bring you the best tricks and recipes to cook for one.

If you live alone, you cannot give up a healthy and varied diet. We already know that cooking for one person is sometimes lazy and just entering the kitchen becomes a mountain for us. If you order fast food, take out or pre-cooked food, it will surely be the fastest way but it is preferable that you cook yourself to follow a healthy diet.

Cooking a complete menu with a first and second plate is sometimes practically impossible, either due to lack of desire or time. A little trick is to make a single dish that is complete and nutritionally balanced. In this way, we will save time, save money and have a lighter dinner. Because generally when you have to cook it is usually at night, since during the day you are in the office.

Tricks to cook for just one

Offers always help

When you go to the supermarket it is essential that you control the expenses and the portions that you are going to buy. This way you will not waste money or waste food. Opt for non-perishable or late expiration products, products with a short expiration date but that you use regularly, or products that you can freeze to keep them properly.

Create menus and… give food a second life!

On Sundays you can choose to plan the dishes, shopping and menus for the week. To avoid wasting food, you can alternate day yes / day no. That is, if you eat hamburger with salad on Mondays, you can repeat the protein on Wednesday by cutting it into pieces and combining it with a delicious rice.

If you eat between meals ... make them healthy snacks!

Snacking is one of your worst enemies ... as long as the snacks you take are not healthy. If, after work, you come home and open a beer and snack on French fries, you probably don't want to have dinner. Error! Opt for nuts, fruit, or a mini snack.

The pantry can get you out of any trouble.

Rice, pasta or legumes are very versatile and easy-to-cook ingredients. If you are short of time and you need to eat something quickly, these foods together with asparagus or a vegetable stir fry can be delicious, balanced and complete dishes.
