Ahhh, the single life. There are certainly pros and cons to being single. Eating habits are one of them. I happen to have a slew of cookbooks on my shelves and the tools and hardware to make most anything I want, but I haven’t really been using them. And no, frying eggs over hard doesn’t really count as cooking. Neither does making waffles using the box mixes.
Despite the fact that I know what I should and shouldn’t be including in my diet, my eating habits have definitely slid back to what they were in my early twenties. I still try and eat organic and non-GMO when I can, but I must admit I’ve gotten lazy. Cooking for one sucks the big one. I have absolutely zero desire to eat leftovers for four days or clean a slew of pots of pans after spending the time to make a proper meal that is usually sized for 2-4 people.
I’ve started eating out more, ordering takeout or delivery, or going for quick “meals” that consist of an odd mashup of cereal, triscuits and cheese, nuts, and random fruit that happens to be in the fridge. I used to feel really guilty about not eating better, but I’m starting to get over it, Sometimes it’s just awesome to call an order of spicy boneless chicken wings and a beer “dinner”. Beats cereal (most) any night.
