5 Ways to make your meals exciting

1. Take a vegan cooking class

There’s nothing better than gathering together with like-minded eaters to learn new recipes, discover new ingredients, and try new cooking techniques. Search online for cooking classes in your area and recruit a friend or two to go with you.

2. Buy novel ingredients

Peruse the grocery store aisles and pick three to five ingredients you’ve never tried or have never used in your home cooking. The produce section is bound to have a veg or fruit that you’ve never bought. The bulk section is loaded with ingredients to inspire a different meal every day of the week. The spice aisle is bound to have an herb or spice that you’ve never tried. Search online for recipes using your new ingredients so they don’t just go to waste.

3. Try a new cookbook

Vegan cooking has become so popular that there is a delicious selection of vegan cookbooks just waiting for you to page through. Choose a general vegan cookbook or go for the specialty cookbooks that focus only on a particular cooking technique, such as slow cooking, or a particular food, such as vegan muffins. Give raw food cookbooks a read and you’ll find many tasty ways to transform fresh ingredients into satisfying vegan meals.

4. Go out to eat

Believe it or not, staying out of your kitchen for a day or two or three can actually inspire you to cook. Whether it be an outstanding vegan menu that motivates you to recreate the dishes at home or the fact you simply need a break from the daily grind of cooking, dining out is a great way to get you out of your cooking rut.

5. Invite friends over for a vegan potluck

Sometimes all you need is to liven up your mealtime with close friends and good food. Organize a potluck at your home. Assign a different part of the meal to each of your friends and let them surprise you with their potluck dishes. Then sit around and brainstorm strategies to keep home cooking an exciting part of your life. Not only will you be gleaning helpful tips to stay motivated in your kitchen, you’ll also be helping your friends get out of their own cooking ruts, if they too are struggling with uninspired meals.
