The 73 million Americans who live by themselves need to make sure they’re getting their essential vitamins, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). Because singles tend to cook fewer of their own meals, they’re more likely to eat out often and eat too much, or skip meals altogether, rather than going through the trouble of making a nutritious meal for one.

That’s why the AICR has recently published a free booklet, Cooking Solo: Homemade for Health. Including information on recipes for one, standard serving sizes for the average adult, and how to make cooking and dining enjoyable, Cooking Solo can be downloaded from the website, or call for a copy, 800/843-8114.
