How to eat healthy and fresh when cooking for one?
Healthy and fresh food (vegetables, fruit and poultry) comes in such large packaging that since I’m only cooking for one and can only eat so much, I end up throwing a lot of it away. Any tips for how I can use it all or save it or buy small amounts so it’s not wasteful? Thanks.

Purchase a jucier. When the veggies start getting old, juice them. You can also use veggies in stews, soups, and even stir-fry when they have refirgerator wear. Old tomatoes can add zest to marinara sauces, for example.
As for poultry, you should be able to freeze chicken breasts, turkey burger and a number of other items. If a recipe can only be done in large quantities (e.g. chili), simply freeze the remainder in small containers and heat up just what you need.
You can also eat frozen vegetables, which are just as healthy for you (if not more healthy) than what you find in the produce aisle.
