Making Tasty Meals Daily - Overcoming Repetitive Dish Syndrome

February 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 164

Do you have a difficult time coming up with new dishes to make for breakfast, lunch and dinner? You are not alone because many individuals are dealing with this same issue each and every day. If you are not a culinary chef with access to the finest foods, spices, and cooking utensils in the world, how can you prepare distinctive tasty meals for two or three times each day, seven days per week?

This is a tough question to answer because most people have busy lives, and the time and energy to cook just does not seem to be available. This is why most households are dealing with Repetitive Food Syndrome. This pattern comes from making the meals that require absolutely no thought. This usually includes any pre-packaged food that you can boil, fry, or bake in 20 minutes or less.

People will get into the habit of making repetitive dishes if they have small children or very demanding jobs. As making a living becomes more important, making tasty meals regularly becomes less important to them. Some people may feel as if there is no way around this, but by making a few adjustments, these individuals can create a variety of tasty meals that will not take up much of their time.

Purchase a Cookbook. Purchasing a cookbook does not mean you cannot cook. It will not hinder your creativity in the kitchen either. All it will do is give you ideas so you can add variety to the meals you currently cook.

Expand Your Ingredients. Experiment with ingredients and spices that you would not normally use. You may find these ingredients at farmers markets and specialty stores. This will help you add a different taste to the foods you cook.

Take a Cooking Class. If you enjoy ethnic food or, like many people, want to learn to cook healthier meals, consider taking a cooking class. The main dishes, side dishes, and desserts that you will learn to cook will surely allow you to add variety to your regular menu.

Use Creative Presentations. Making a dish look pretty is part of adding variety to the meal planning. Using garnishes and other decorations can make the meal look more appetizing. This is a good strategy, especially when it comes to kids!

With these strategies, you will slowly be able to overcome Repetitive Dish Syndrome. As you gain more practice and implement your own ideas, making tasty meals everyday will be much easier.
