Chances are you’re doing more cooking than ever from home given the current times. It can become a bit monotonous, it’s often a challenge to avoid cooking the same things and stay motivated to prepare healthy meals.
Truth is, one of the simplest ways to improve your nutrition and health is to home cook your meals. Here’s a few tips to help you out:
Find a couple of new recipes you’re excited to try. Search for some ‘clean eating’ recipes online, search ‘recipe’ on this page or grab a healthy mag or cookbook next time you’re shopping, for some inspiration and creativity.
Try new or different foods that you don’t normally make. Try a new curry, slow cooked dish or salad combo. Experimenting with some new herbs and spices you haven’t tried before or even some different veggies you don’t normally eat are great ways to add variation to your meals.
Cook healthy meals in bulk so that you have left overs for another meal, or even freeze for when you want a night off cooking on a Friday night. This will help avoid going for unhealthy take away options.
Keep your kitchen clean and organised. Arrange your herbs and spices and keep them at your finger tips so you’ll be more likely to use them in your cooking to keep flavours interesting. If you have the time, do a pantry clean out. This ALWAYS makes you feel good.
Make cooking fun! Involve the whole family, take turns in choosing meals, or just get in the kitchen, get the tunes on and go nuts!!
