Do you take a specific time to eat lunch, or do you eat whenever? If you have a home office, do you eat at your desk or do you go into your "house" to eat?

I eat at my desk in my home office. It's a bad habit I'm trying to break. Going out for lunch or eating with co-workers in a separate room is one of the things I miss about not working out of the home.

I definitely do not take standard lunch breaks. Especially in my time zone, Mountain, I'm working with people who have already had lunch by the time it's noon for me; so, I usually snack a bit earlier and then again later in the day. By the mid afternoon I'm usually wanting something with protein if I haven't had that already. I don't eat in a specific place at home either, but I should start doing that, especially for dinner with J.
