Solo flying? Just because you’re only feeding one person–yourself–doesn’t mean you can resort to endless takeout, or frozen TV dinners (although those can come in handy from time to time). You can eat healthy, easy meals that require little effort and don’t take too much time. We have chosen recipes that are perfect for single-serving portions, or that can be made ahead and frozen. You can make something quick or prepare a meal that you will enjoy all week. Get better at cooking!

1. The Perfect Omelet

Let’s begin at the beginning. Making an omelette is very simple. This recipe will show you how to make perfect omelets over and over again. Great for dinner.

2. Chicken Panini with Pesto and Peppers

Paninis are a great idea for cooking, no matter how kulinarika many people you are. This panini is rich and creamy, just like Panera bread. It’s also lighter, healthier, and lower in calories.

3. Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Sheet pan dinners can be a great option if you don’t want to wash multiple pans or have to cook a lot of food. If you are only cooking today, you can use one chicken breast and one bell potato. You can also make the entire recipe if needed.

4. Avocado Berry Smoothie

This smoothie is suitable for both paleo- and non-paleo dietters. This smoothie is a nutritious, delicious and healthy option to a piece or two of fruit.

5. Breakfast Burrito

This is a great trick: Make four breakfast burritos and have them available for the entire week. This burrito is hearty and delicious, with chicken sausages, eggs and black beans. You can save these to be eaten later by omitting the avocado. Use our foolproof burrito folding method.

6. Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

You might like the idea that you can make your breakfast the night before and wake up to delicious overnight oatmeal the next morning if you are a planner. If you plan to make them for the entire week, this will only make one jar.
