Cooking for one

Cooking for O N E 🍴


👶🏼👩🏻👵🏻Eating well is important at any age.

♥️Healthy eating can help prevent diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancers.

👩🏻‍So many times in clinic, I hear my patients say they don’t cook because what’s the point in cooking for one.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦It’s fun to cook for friends and family, so invite them over and make meals a social experience.

For other days

Make big batches of meals (like this roast dinner) and use the leftovers for a meal@another day or use as lunch box food.

🍝Find new recipes that are quick and easy to prepare.

📻Eating alone doesn’t have to be a lonely experience, turn the radio on, play your favourite music, watch TV.

🏖If weather permits, pack your meal up and head to the park, beach or woodland for an alfresco dinning experience

💰Cooking from fresh at home is cheaper than eating out.


🎨Use cooking as a creative outlet, don’t be scared to try new flavours, textures and foods.

❌Cooking from fresh natural ingredients means you are aware of what foods go into your meals.


Ditch the “why brother” syndrome and make yourself the priority. Treat yourself to a delicious well balanced meal.
