Humans, in general, have very basic needs. Give us good food, clothes to wear, a roof over our head, a nurturing relationship/family, and a challenging job, and we’re pretty much feeling settled and happy. Of all this, food is the most important.
Take A Break From The Kitchen
To be fair, it may not be you or the food at all! More often than not, when we’ve been eating our own food for days at a stretch, and cooking the same meals over and over again, we tend to go into a rut. This makes our food feel soulless. To break this cycle, consider going out for a meal¾that too, to a place you usually wouldn’t go to. Look for the best restaurant in Croydon that provides your favorite cuisine. Dress up, and go have a wonderful time, not only breaking yourself from this food rut but also giving your taste buds a new experience that will hopefully inspire it.
Change The Chef
Who does the cooking in your home? Like we mentioned above, cooking every day can get tedious, so consider taking a break, or giving the chef-in-charge a break. It’s easier to handle this situation if the house members take turns cooking. This not only reduces the chances of the general chef exhausting him/herself, but also to give each family member a chance to develop and hone their culinary skills.
Try A Different Cuisine
Thanks to the internet, you no longer need to visit a country to sample its foods! Of course, the authentic taste may not come off quite right when you make it at home, but it will be worth a try! Our personal tip for you is to avoid sticking to one cuisine, why not taste the world in your kitchen? From classic British fish and chips to the more complicated Indian or Thai curries to even the complex Chinese steam bun Bao: allow yourself to taste it all.
Change The Ingredients Of The Same Recipe
Sometimes, something as simple as changing the ingredients of a recipe or the quantities of it can make a whole lot of difference for your food. Swap the ingredients for similar ones (like dry mango powder in place of citrus juice or coconut milk in place of cow’s milk) or in the very least, give a different brand a try. That same brand of mayonnaise you have brought for years may be the reason for your soulless food.
The Problem Might Be Your Kitchen, Rather Than The Food Itself
Humans, in general, crave the occasional change and upgrading. This is why we often find ourselves contemplating different hairstyles or trying out different shoe brands. Of course, many of us don’t actually go through with this thought, resulting in us sticking to the same old even when an upgrade is much needed. In quite the same way, consider if your kitchen has not been upgraded in a long time. If so, this might be hindering your creativity in the kitchen, making you stick to the same old recipes instead of trying something new.
