Tips to End Food Boredom + 3 Recipes


“This mean plan is boring.  I’m tired of eating chicken (or fish, or steak) and vegetables,” said EVERYONE who ever transitioned from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to eating clean as a lifestyle.Funny-Memes-About-Being-Bored-9

Healthy eating honestly tastes fantastic when done well.  Seriously, how many times have you heated up a frozen dinner in the microwave and thought, “EXCITING!”  Me neither.

But if I’m eating grilled bison burger with a side of fresh spinach and almond salad, there’s a taste bud party in my mouth.

People fall into ruts, and that includes the way that you prepare dinner.  Spice things up with herbs!  Add some mustard!  Experiment with apple cider vinegar on your salad!  Whoa! 

Sometimes you just have to think outside the box.  Let’s say you were going to eat one ounce of cheese with your meal.  You could cube it, grate it, melt it or eat it whole.  It’s the same amount of cheese but since the texture is different it seems more interesting.

Likewise the way you cook your food can impact the taste.  Chicken doesn’t have to be boring.  plain-chicken-bodybuilderHere are some different ways you can prepare it:

  1. Bake – helps lock in juices to make it moist
  2. Grill – for that smoky taste
  3. Dry-fry in a skillet with some butter flavor spray
  4. Boil – in a pot of water with a little salt
  5. Microwave – when you’re in a rush

Where there’s a will there’s a way and healthy food can be as adventurous as you choose to make it.
