Let’s be honest, our mealtimes can get repetitive and boring at times. We can all get stuck in the routine where we are serving the same meals, face the same battles and objections from our children, and find that we can get a little disheartened by the food we serve. But mealtimes should be all about coming together as a family or at least enjoying the food you are preparing and making. With that in mind, here are some of the top tips to help you enhance the food you eat. Making your meal time far more interesting and enjoyable.

Try out new kitchen gadgets

Sometimes using different tools in the kitchen can help to make our cooking experience more enjoyable. Not to mention the different textures of food it can create and the more flavour that can be added. Of course, you don’t want to be filling your whole kitchen with gadgets, but there are a few to consider. Things like a pressure cooker, slow cooker and also the right equipment for cooking in the oven or on the stove can make a big difference.

Get inspiration from different recipes

Sometimes simply looking through some recipe books or browsing the internet online can identify some great meals to try. We can all get used to eating the same meal week after week, but this can mean you become complacent with your cooking style and what you eat. It may seem daunting at first, but trying new things can often inspire you to keep on trying and perhaps even more complicated recipes and techniques. It maybe looking online for a recipe for how to make baba ganoush, it might be trying to find recipes that include fish, or vegetables that you haven’t used before.

Don’t be afraid to try new ingredients

There are often ingredients that we are just too scared to try. This can be for a number of reasons. You may be unsure on how to cook the ingredients or what they may be used for. But you never know what something may taste like until you try it. So why not try something new each week? You may be surprised to see how it could diversify your cooking. Sometimes hiding different vegetables in foods your family are familiar with is another way to pack in the nutrients into your meals.

Get more involved in meal planning

Meal planning is a great way to up your game with your mealtime choices. It requires a little forward thinking, but it could take away any stress you may have at meal times and even save you some money on your food shopping bill. Try it and see for yourself. One afternoon, surround yourself with recipe books and decide what to cook each night. It may even be worth getting the family and children involved. This way they may be more inclined to be a little more adventurous with their eating habits.

Let’s hope these tips and tricks help you to enhance the food you cook at mealtimes. Not just for yourself, but the whole family.
