One of the best ways to improve your life is to take tasks that have to be done anyway and make them a source of fun and learning. This can work in many aspects of your life (with the possible exception of cleaning – nothing can make cleaning fun).
No what I am talking about is cooking. Everyone needs to eat. Heck we do it three times a day. So it is a major task. And if you look at it like a task, it will become an odious chore. But if you look at it as a way to try new recipes, experiment with new flavours, stimulate all your taste buds, it becomes a wonderful source of fun and learning.
Most people get into the rut of eating the same five meals over and over again until it just becomes too tedious. But small incremental changes will make huge improvements in the quality of life.
For instance, people eat fried eggs. All well and good. Very functional. But with just a little more effort you could make scrambled eggs. A tiny step above that and you could add some salsa to the plate with your scrambled eggs. A little more effort and you could be enjoying a lovely cheese omelette. Next thing you know you could be cooking up a veggie and cheese omelette with some basil on top. Oh my can croissant be far behind?
Small incremental improvements such as this can be applied to all aspects of your daily meals. Suddenly eating is a lot more flavourful and a lot more fun. And the good news is that all of this can be accomplished for a lot less money than eating out. Not only are you saving money on food, you’re saving money on gas driving to and through restaurants.
So give it a try and see what small changes you can make.
