Here is my problem… I like big yummy comfort food! Mash, gravy, pizza, pies, pasta all not bad in moderation, but they end up saturating my diet with huge amounts of calories which is a down right pain! Conversely I also enjoy healthier options too but ease of cooking and portion sizes are a bit of a constant issue. My mum has said for ever that my eyes are bigger than my tummy. Well yes they clearly are! I just never get it right unless i measure it out. My brain cooks for 4 when its just for myself.
I do think that supermarkets don’t make it easy for cooking for one. A lot of the good value options are huge packets of stuff, especially fresh food which unless I plan to eat the same thing for a week (which I get bored as hell with and go seeking snacks) there’s not much good in buying.
I have to have a final hurrah to get rid of things from my cupboard, fridge and freezer. I think my flatmate will be the recipient of some gifted random foods which he will devour in due course.
Anyway this is where I am starting from. Lets see where I end up.
