Eating is not optional. But when it’s just you, it becomes so easy to let things slide. You eat out. You skip meals. You call cereal dinner.
To some extent, this happens to anyone living alone. People Who Cook can reframe their thinking and find the joy in solo cooking. It’s harder for The Rest of Us.
For a brief, partnered time, I was sort of a Person Who Cooked. And then we split up. And I was once again a Single Girrl Eating Alone.
I’ve had plenty of time to mine the pitfalls of this lifestyle: brain fog, fatigue, fluctuations in weight, mood and blood-sugar. And over the years I’ve developed some food strategies to manage those pitfalls.
I know these challenges are not unique to me, and I’m here to share my solutions.
I’m not likely to become a Person Who Cooks for the fun of it. But I have become someone who puts together healthy, nourishing food that supports my overall wellbeing. I hope my strategies can help you, too.
