Here's How to Make Cooking More Fun


If you don't love cooking, maybe I can help to make it more fun for you?

I know that sometimes I don't find cooking to be all that fun. I can get into a rut just like everyone else.

So that's way I've listed my best "fun" cooking tips for you.

Tip #1 - Fun Cooking

Check out new recipes.

Sometimes just seeing the beautiful food photos and reading the recipe can spark some inspiration and fun in your kitchen.


You can head to our local bookstore. Or look up your favorite nutritionists, chefs, bakers, and other online foodies. Maybe do a quick search on Google or Pinterest to see thousands of new ideas. Like this one: Twenty-Five Clean Eating Recipes

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/610237818236628474/

Perhaps you have some ingredients in your fridge that are just waiting to be eaten.

Pro Tip: Searching through recipes can be so fun and inspiring, and can also end up taking way longer than planned. So, consider setting your timer when you start browsing. The last thing you what is to take too much time looking, that you don't leave enough time for cooking. Or you can send me a message to help you with a few weeks of recipes, to match your cooking style, along with a grocery list and nutritional values. See below how I can create recipes for you.


Tip #2 -

Make grocery shopping fun and inspiring.

When you're at the grocery store, try something that you haven't had in a while. Is there a seasonal fruit or vegetable you haven't had for months? What about a childhood favorite? Did you come across something totally delicious at a restaurant or get-together lately?

Or, browse around the store looking for something you haven't had before; something that is completely new to you. Be adventurous and fun. Then you can go to tip #1 to find new and inspiring recipe when you get home.

Tip #3 -

Keep it simple!

Sometimes I see great food picture, I immediately get inspired to make it. But if I look at the ingredients or instructions and they're too long, I stop. While there are times when I'm inspired and dive into a new great recipe; when I'm not all that inspired, I need to keep things simple.

A few ways to keep things simple are to:

  • Search for recipes with 10 or fewer ingredients, and five or fewer instructions;

  • Search for recipes that can be made in one pot or pan;

  • Buy ingredients that are ready to cook with (pre-washed salad greens, diced squashes, frozen vegetables, etc.)

Tip # 4 -

Put on some music and invite someone to join you.

Do you have kids that need to learn the critical life skill of cooking? Perhaps your partner would love to join you? What about having a "cooking party" when everyone brings something and pitches in on the process?

Tip #5 -

If none of the other tips work for you, invest in some kitchen swag!

Having proper kitchen tools makes cooking so much easier and faster. When's the las time you sharpened your (our bought yourself a new) knife? Could dicing carrots with a dull knife be draining the fun from cooking? Or is blending a smoothie with a crummy blender, leaving it too chunky to enjoy, making you feel less excited to try new smoothie recipes? I know it does for me.

Conclusion:

You know that cooking is key to healthy eating. And, yes, it does get boring from time to time.

Try one (or all) of my fun cooking tips to inspire you to get over to your kitchen and cook yourself some great dishes.

You already know your health will thank you.
