If you’re stuck in a rut and eating the same things every day, then it’s time to break out and try some fun new foods. Read on for some ideas.
Maybe you’ve never been much of a seafood enthusiast, but now might be the time to give it another shot. Start with something simple like fried catfish Plano, and then move on to shrimp or scallops, lobster or crab. You can try these blended into dishes first perhaps rather than on their own, or you could dive right in and make them the entree.
Alternately, you might sample some foods from around the world. Chinese dumplings might be just about right or perhaps spring rolls or even Yakisoba (literally, grilled noodles). You could also enjoy the Honduran baleadas (beans and eggs in a tortilla) or South American arepas (pancakes). If you’re up for Middle Eastern cuisine, sample the dolma (stuffed grape leaves) or biryani (rice pilaf with saffron and chicken). You might discover a new favorite, and you’ll certainly broaden your perspective.
If you aren’t quite so adventurous as to try world-inspired foods, then at least indulge in some variations on your old favorites. Use a different spice on your grilled chicken, for instance, or create a sandwich or salad with different ingredients, a new variety of lunch meat or a cheese you’ve never tried before or even a variation on your normal lettuce or salad dressing.
Finally, you may simply want to occasionally sample something different. Maybe you’ve never tasted marzipan. Give it a try. You could indulge in a bit of dulce de leche on top of cheesecake or chocolate. If you really want an interesting experience, you could even taste an insect or two (properly cooked of course) or courgette flowers or goji berries.
So break out of your rut, and get adventurous with your food choices.
