Okay the title is a little bit of a misnomer. But here are some eats for last Thursday, when I ate all of my meals – that’s right – by myself. Okay, not REALLY by myself – this guy joined me .. but I was the only adult at each meal I ate for the first time in a while. So here is what I ended up eating for today’s What I Ate Wednesday!
For breakfast, B and I got smoothies at Restore. I know- I said I ate alone. But I did – I ate it while BF’ing FW. We also got coffees – my iced coffee from Phoenix was delicious – but it took me about 3 days to drink it …
Snacks during the morning mostly included grapes. A whole lotta grapes. Only a few are pictured here.
I had lunch while FW was napping and made myself some egg whites and cheese with leftovers from dinner – sweet potato, zucchini and pepper hash. It was delicious – and again, eaten alone.
I had plans to meet up with a coworker, his wife and their new baby for an afternoon drink and opted for white wine. Yes, it was social (with other people) – but no food (minus a potato chip or two that was on the table) was really consumed.
B had after work plans – an event and then the Indians game – so I was on my own for dinner. I stopped off at the Heinen’s salad bar and picked up this. There are some more tortellini, quinoa and other goodies under that lettuce.
I heated up some soup my mom had made and brought when she visited to go with my salad – chicken and pasta.
And a peach that I had gotten at the farmer’s market that morning made for a complete dinner.
That was it! A pretty good day of eats by myself. Disclaimer- some days when I eat alone all I manage to eat are spoonfuls of peanut butter, ice cream and handfuls of cereal because I’m holding FW with the other hand all day.
Some questions for you:
- Do you eat differently when you eat alone vs with friends/family?
- Do you eat soup in the summer or when it’s hot out? Or only in the winter?

I can probably count the number of complete meals I’ve eaten in 2+ years without being interrupted by a kid, feeding a baby, or just have having one of them sitting in my lap on both hands, so I say you’re doing pretty well! Enjoy the freedom! your salad bar eats look perfect!
I probably eat a lot more when I eat alone because I’m not taking my time in conversation. I also have no shame in making weird concoctions when alone, lol. And I love making sweet potato hash, one of my favs!
