Stuck in a meal rut? How to rejuvenate your weekly menu
Research shows that more than half of us are ‘stuck in a rut’ when it comes to cooking meals, with 59% of Brits tending to rotate the same dishes every week*! People lead busy lives and a lack of time is one of the major constraints cited when it comes to cooking a wider variety of dishes. But with the winter nights drawing in, now is the perfect time to spend some quality time getting more creative in the kitchen.
Take time to explore new recipes
Allow yourself a little time to find your cooking inspiration – the perfect weekend chill-time task, if you ask us! If you want some inspiration, take a look at the Cooking section of our website where you’ll find recipes from simple suppers to indulgent desserts, all using Creamline’s ingredients.
Aim for one new dish a week
If you’re struggling for time, cooking a new recipe every night of the week is not going to be achievable. Instead, challenge yourself to cook just one new thing each week. To help you, plan before you shop so you know exactly what you need before you place your order (our preference, of course!) or visit the supermarket. By setting yourself a realistic goal, you’re more likely to be able to introduce new dishes into your weekly routine.
More Taste & Less Waste
You may be worrying that by introducing new meals into the mix you’ll be running the risk of wasting leftover ingredients. We love this new More Taste & Less Waste cookbook from Dairy Diary, which shows you how to create delicious food whilst minimising food waste. Each delicious recipe has a stunning colour photograph, cook’s tips and information on preparation, storage and freezing. Plus, boxes to write your own notes and tips on shopping and meal planning, storage and preparation and using up ingredients.
