Honestly, this piece, and all the times you’ve written about taking breaks during work, is getting a little navel gaze-y. Taking a break for lunch truly shouldn’t take this much back-and-forth “I could do x, but y”. Also, these issues aren’t really exclusive to people who work from home? It’s not like offices have lunch bells like some kind of old-timey factory. Occasionally I’ll work through the day at my office drone job and forget to eat until late in the afternoon. It’s not a big deal, and certainly not worth this much self-flagellation.
