Make a meal for 4 (more or less depending on what you feel like), split it into portions and freeze and/or refrigerate what you don't eat. That way you can potentially save money buying ingredients (and not waste them), it's easier to make a larger meal than just for 1 and you will always have something on hand to eat if you don't feel like cooking. Invest in some good containers for freezing and maybe a food saver or other vacuum packer and you're all set.

Diane, First Many times I buy frozen homemade dinners from our local hospital. The do diet meals for seniors, handicap, and some that aren't able to prepared there own meals. My mother would eat anything I would, but when I started dialysis alot more restriction were on me. It wasn't fair that my mother would have to restrict so much from herself so I order 7 meals a week, one to eat everyday. I got diabetic and renal diet. The meals were $2.50 each., already frozen at pick up. All I had to do was take out of frezzer and put in oven for 45 mins. The meals were homemade and actually great. Also We have what we call meals on wheels. They delivery lunch daily except Sundays for $17.00 a week There not bad either. Its just a few suggestions. Hope it helps…Debe
