Eating Alone Or In Company Enjoy It Your Way Part 2
Image by Marie Vonow
Sometimes I enjoy eating alone. I am likely to be more mindful of what I am eating
. Some people think it is sad or pathetic to eat alone, especially if the lone diner is in a restaurant where others are in couples or groups. Some feel it is not worth making an effort to cook a lovely meal for one at home and going to the bother of setting the table complete with flowers and candles. I disagree.
, I sometimes eat with my son or other family, but there are times I eat on my own. I may eat in the kitchen but sometimes I choose to eat alfresco. Wherever I decide to eat, sometimes I put a lace tablecloth on the table, pick a bunch of flowers and light a candle or two. I may even have a glass of wine. It makes the meal more of an occasion and yes, it is definitely worth the effort just for myself.

I find I take more notice of what I am eating when I am solo. I also appreciate my environment more.
Ways to make eating alone at home an 'occasion'
Although I am sometimes happy to eat alone at home and even make an event out of it, I also enjoy sharing a meal with others.
