Battling Dinner Boredom
The age of social distancing started over a year ago.
And a few hundred days later, we’re still pretty distant and kitchen fatigue has fully taken over. To help defeat the kitchen boredom busters, we’ve put together a few hacks that can help you break out of your culinary rut.
Think about Meal Prep
Mapping out your meals is not only an excellent way to break up the kitchen boredom, but also a wonderful way to reduce waste at home. Take a simple chicken for example. Roast a whole chicken on night one, but don’t discard the bones! Use the bones to make a chicken stock, perfect for Chicken, Quinoa, Vegetable Soup and use any leftover roasted chicken on top of a salad like our Chicken Caesar Freekeh Salad.
What’s in a Meal?
For many, a meal often means cooking with lots of pots and pans, but it really doesn’t have to be. Preparing a nutritionally balanced meal can be much less complicated than a whole roast, starches, and a vegetable. Some ideas to consider:
- Breakfast for Dinner: When in doubt, breakfast for dinner is a delicious, nutritious option that’s family-friendly and often very little mess. Try Sweet Potato, Kale, Garam Masala Hash with a Fried Egg or Kale, Caramelized Onion, Goat Cheese Barley.
- Take a Twist on Your Staples: Tired of Taco Tuesday at home? Twist your traditional taco shells for an avocado with Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocado with Pico de Gallo and Cheddar. Bored with chicken salad? Make it buffalo! Buffalo Chicken Blue Cheese Stuffed Avocado makes a delicious lunch.
- Dip Night: Who needs a whole meal when you can make a healthy dip to enjoy for dinner, lunch, or a snack. Serve up any of our delicious dips like Black Bean, Cheddar Tomato Dip or Greek Yogurt, Spinach, Artichoke Dip with toasted pita chips and fresh veggies.
Search Social Media
If you’re in need of dinner inspiration and your favorite blogs/foodie websites aren’t cutting it, search social! Use hashtag searches on Instagram for specific ingredients to uncover new and creative ways to cook them at home. We won’t say #FLIKatHome is one of our favorite hashtags, but we defiantly recommend giving it a look at.
