In the majority of cultures all over the world, eating is regarded as an activity that is best enjoyed in a group setting, but there are some great reasons to eat alone too. A family dinner on a Sunday night, a trip to a restaurant with your partner or brunch with your friends on a Saturday morning; when we eat it is nearly almost always with other people. However, eating along is becoming more and more common thanks to our busy schedules. Recent studies have proved that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing for our health and our happiness. Here are all the best reasons to eat alone.
1. You Can Eat Whatever You like!
Being able to binge on your favourite junk food isn’t necessarily a good thing, but if you have the chance to eat alone when usually you eat with somebody who has a shellfish allergy, then you can treat yourself for once and feast on things like shrimp or mussels! When you only have yourself to consider, you can also splurge on a slightly more-pricey dish than normal, or purchase more expensive ingredients to make yourself a posher dinner than usual. Freedom to eat what you choose is one of the best reasons to eat alone.
