Chef Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.There's no doubt that eating by yourself and eating healthy can be a challenge. There are a few considerations and first and foremost is that there's no one to share the shopping, cooking and cleaning up. With couples and families often one person will cook and the other clean up. Or sometimes people will switch off making different meals on chosen days. With a larger group of 4 or 5 in a family it can be easier to cook because most recipes are scaled for two or more.

Back when I first started helping people build menus to eat healthier it became clear that these issues were important for folks living alone. At the time I was also living by myself. Here are a few tips for making your life easier, delicious and healthy if you are on your own: Eating Healthy Alone

Featured Recipe

Mustard Glazed Salmon with Lentils

Coarse Ground MustardThis is one of my favorite dishes. It's a variation of one created by a chef friend of mine that he used to serve in his restaurant. It is an almost perfect meal. High fiber, legumes, salmon full of monounsaturated fats, rich flavors and veggies make it a complete Mediterranean Diet meal. Best of all it's really easy to cook and the whole recipe is less than 30 minutes start to finish.

This recipe is safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users, is low in sodium, and is gluten-free provided that your ingredients are gluten-free. Those who are lactose intolerant and those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it.
