I have become a pro at cooking healthy meals for myself, but when it comes to cooking for a man this can often be difficult. I try to find easy ways to make a full calorie version for him & a lighter one for myself without making two completely different meals.
When I made Sloppy Joe's recently, I made a regular version with ground beef, onions & Manwhich sauce. And then, I took some of the meat into a separate pot & added tofu to my portion. This lowered the calories and kept the protein level high for myself. I also served my portion as an open faced sandwich to save on the calories from the white bun.

How do you eat healthy while cooking for your boyfriend/husband or your entire family?
