Self-Care Challenge (Day 106): Cooking for One

spaghetti with shaved parmesanWhen my husband is out of town, it’s tempting to fall back on “easy” meals that require little effort to prepare. After all, it’s just little old me, so why would I go to all the trouble?

I’ve heard this same sentiment from many of my single friends and clients over the years. It can be hard to get excited about cooking for one.

In my pursuit of a comprehensive self-care practice, I decided that I needed to change my mindset. After all, I deserve to have a meal prepared with love too, don’t I? My health is important too, isn’t it? The simple act of preparing a meal might not seem that significant, but it felt really nice.

When was the last time you prepared an unhurried, nurturing meal for just yourself?
