  1. Carolina is a fantastic person to advocate for once a month meals. She has used them to better her diet and health.

  2. Carolina is a busy woman, giving so much of her time and talent to benefit others. Yet, being healthy and living a lifestyle of wellness is also important to her. So, I know how genuinely excited she has been about her freezer meals for one. I also know she truly WILL share her wining meals with a family who can benefit from them. I vote for Carolina.

  3. Well done, Carolina!! I know cooking for one is hard, and i hate when food is wasted. This sounds like great, easy action and solution.

  4. A great inspiration Carolina! Cookingonce & freezing is such a great option & I love that you’re doing it for 1 person too when not everyone thinks of that. Go Carolina!

  5. Carolina is right. Cooking for one can be a challenge. But she’s got a helpful perspective here. Go, Carolina!

  6. As a 78-year-old widow living alone and trying to be motivated and have the energy for cooking for myself, I was impressed with Carolina! I hope she wins!

  7. I love how you’ve made it work well for you, Carolina! I know my MIL has trouble, so this might be a good idea for her too.

  8. Carolina is always looking for innovative recipes to allow her to eat healthy while only cooking for one. I applaud her for using Once A Month Meals!
