A favorite issue among retirees today is the difficulty of cooking for just two people. For the most part, I find it easy to cook for two, maybe because my husband is a big eater. He is not fat though – I just serve a ton of veggies, and he eats everything.
There is always a lot of chatter about what to eat for breakfast and the importance of starting the day with a healthy choice. Many people feel if they skip breakfast they will lose weight.
