Eating Healthy for One

My boyfriend recently got a second shift job, therefore I eat dinner alone now 😦 But rather than taking this sadness and alone time to craft amazing and wild dinners, I started exploring with different stir fries, salads, and much more light and healthy options that I usually just don’t do because I am feeding a male. I’ve had a few great meals that were super light but filling and delicious! I thought I had to share for any others out there that want a good and healthy dinner on the lighter fare. I don’t have any pictures of the ones I’ve made so far but I will start taking pictures soon.

Fun Fact: Spinach is the only vegetable that is more vitamin rich when cooked!
