Solo suppers

What does ‘food for one’mean to you? A tasteless microwave meal, flavourless pasta with cheese, baked beans eaten from the tin? The new book Solo Food is leading the food-for-one revolution with easy, inspiring ideas to show there’s no greater act of love than to feed yourself well

When Dutch cook Janneke Vreugdenhil split up from her husband, her life was turned upside down. After surviving for months on smoothies and shop-bought soups, the turning point came when Janneke found herself simultaneously crying and laughing on the kitchen floor, realising that ‘it all sucks big time and everything is down to me from now on, but I’m still alive’. From that point, she realised that she could live on her own and actually enjoy it, too. ‘As the rawest of my grief began to recede, my interest in food returned, and with it, myenjoyment of cooking,’she says. ‘It was my way of giving pleasure to others and I was learning that I deserved that kind of pleasure, too. Now I know that cooking for yourself is nothing less than an exercise in loving yourself.’

About Psychologies

When we change our minds, we change our lives. This issue explores what happens when we do just this. What if you didn’t resign from a job, but could change the way you feel about it? Or what about finding a new way to open up to love? Or, what happens when we challenge the judgements we make about ourselves and each other? Read the astonishing life-changing effects of what happens when you think differently.   Change doesn’t always feel positive - you're made redundant, or your relationship breaks down, or we lose someone we love. And it's awful. Yes, we don’t always have control over what happens out there, but we always have control over how we react to it. This issue explores how to change our perspective to create the world we want.
