What Do My Friends Eat?

Whenever I go grocery shopping, I like to peek into other peoples carts to see what they’re getting. I find that it can be endlessly fascinating. How exactly can a guy survive on just gatorade and frozen pizzas, I wonder. I feel like you can tell a lot about a person from what they have in their cart. In mine, you’ll find it loaded with lots of fresh produce tangled with sweets (like it’s business in the front, party in the back) ;) This idea is what inspired this post. I wanted to investigate into what a typical meal looked like for others and so I began with those around me. So with an enthusiastic, peeping-foodie (sure, that’s a thing) spirit, join me in discovering what they eat.

Faith and Dustin, college students/husband-wife team.

Their main objective is to eat well while on a budget. Chicken Alfredo with roasted tomatoes and garlic bread.

Aaron, the personal chef.



“I cook what I have a taste/time for most nights. Tonight it was pan seared chicken, fried green tomatoes (from my garden), and steamed broccoli.”

Troy, the professional photographer.



Constantly on the go while maintaining a vegetarian lifestyle, but what is this you ask? A CLT, he informed me (which I thought was just named after our city). Nope. It’s like a BLT but with chips instead of bacon ;)

Katie, the gardener.




Eating well and eating fresh is her motto. Pearl couscous.

Trevor, the IT specialist.


photo For someone who’s often on-call, Trevor says that “these {egg and kale /quinoa patties} are easy enough and not too heavy for nights when I find myself eating dinner at 2 am.”

Jenn, the burlesque dancer.





The life of a dancer ain’t easy but somebody’s gotta do it! On the healthy menu? Salmon, corn, broccoli, and kombucha.

I’d love to know, what does a typical meal look like for you and what do your friends eat?
