Do you have trouble eating when you are home alone?

I do. Even though I have a deep freezer full of things I can heat up easily. Some days lunch is just really unappealing. My go to foods when I'm like that are spaetzle with pesto sauce, chalupas or tacos, or a cup of chicken broth.

What do you go for when you're hungry but nothing sounds good?

  1. Peanut butter on a toasted English muffin, usually.

    If I'm feeling a little energetic, I'll make tuna salad for the English muffin.

    1. I live alone, but I understand about "go-to" foods when nothing appeals.
      Cheese n crackers; cottage cheese & fruit; or PBJ are usually the options when I'm in that place.

      1. No, usually don't eat. I may graze a bit but sit diwn and eat a meal, no.

        1. I like scrambled eggs. Not overcooked. With a mix of butter and extra virgin olive oil.

            1. re: ferret

              I too have trouble eating. The trouble is I eat anything and everything, apparently like ferret. But that is not to take the OP's question lightly.

              It's sort of an extension of the teenager standing in front of the open refrigerator saying "there isn't anything here to eat." Some days nothing sounds good. Sadly I just eat whatever it is anyhow. so my advice is just grab something, anything, and make the best of it.
