Cooking for One: A Widow's Challenge

note: in the widowhood circles these days, the term 'widow' is non-gender specific. It's come to mean anyone who's lost their life partner.

In the two years of my journey down this new road, a huge challenge has been to feed myself properly, and with efficency. That means cutting down on food waste. I am always looking for strategies to that end. But please, no advice to "just freeze the leftovers". Already doing that.

There are days when all I can work up the energy for is popcorn and fruit. Other days I find joy in cooking "like I used to"--full blown meals with a sink full of dishes at the conclusion.

I'd love to start a conversation among those who newly cook for one here. What do you do and WHY? It may mean some repitition from old threads, but perhaps we can all glean some new insight into healthy and efficient meal prep for one, singles and widows alike. What do you say?
