Single people-- how do you shop for a variety foods for your dishes, and keep them tasty?

chocoremedy | Jan 10, 201403:21 PM

What the title says! I'm cooking for just myself and find it hard to get variety and not get tired of things. I've been cooking soup, burritos or a casserole-- something that can be freezes easily. But then after I go shopping for the rest of my recipes, it's the same breakfast, same sandwich, same snacks... well, different fruit. But everything else is just the same for 4-5 days and then I have to do it all over.

How can I meal plan to make sure this doesn't happen all the time?

I have bought a variety of vegetables before and just eaten them with the same meat / fish for lunch and dinner, that helped. Did I just answer my own question?

Or is there some secret to effective, transportable, healthy meals for the singleton?
