You may live alone and enjoy your independence. But it can be easy to let your health go if you’re not fully aware of your needs. The infographic below, from Lakeshore Convention Centre, shows you how to stay on top of your diet if you live alone.

Living Alone And Poor Nutrition

The first thing you need to do is understand the type of person you really are. If you’re okay with eating the same thing every day, you can consider making one big dish that will last you an entire week. However, if you’re someone who absolutely needs variety, be aware of this as you do your shopping.

Other things to keep in mind are if you like eating in or eating out. For instance, some people absolutely love to order a sandwich from the local deli at lunchtime and if this is you then there’s no need to stock up on bread at home.

Check out the full infographic now to get an idea of what to keep in mind when you’re shopping for one.

  1. Great information. If I lived alone, I would definitely use one of the farms to table services like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh, because taking the time to shop healthy for one is easier said than done. So tempting in the store to pick up the quickest options for a meal (speaking just for myself).

    1. I understand what you said here about how it’s tempting to pick up the quickest meal options. I definitely have my go-to recipes I like to make so I try to be conscious about trying new ones as often as possible.

  2. This is such an important topic! When it comes to living alone, sometimes we sometimes forget about our own nutrition.

  3. Weirdly, I don’t know why I find cooking for one easy. I meal prep on the weekends and it makes for the easiest week to eat. I really like it.
