Cooking, eating and shopping solo

Lone eaters seem to be at the biggest risk for poor eating habits. Over 40% of those who live alone don’t even prepare one meal a day at home and both eating out and take away meals seem to be often turned-to options. But one of the biggest problems is not a lack of skill or motivation, but that fact that a lot of fresh foods and recipes are just not designed for one serving. Milk spoils, loaves of bread mold and salad greens wilt before they are fully utilized. Recipes have to be cut down from 6 servings to one. As a result, eating out is easy. Shopping and bringing food in is hard.
