Sometimes it’s just got to be done. Do you ever feel as though you’re eating the same foods over and over again? Well, chances are you are. There’s just no variety left when it comes to food. People cook what they find easiest, which often leads to them eating the same meals each week. The same applies to drinking. We’re so happy with just eating what we know that our kitchen cupboards just get so bland. But since we’re heading into the New Year, it’s time to spice things up once and for all. Here are a few ways in which you can spice up your cupboards, both ingredients and food-wise.
The first thing you need to think about is trying something new. It is the New Year and all that. One of the best ways to spice things up a little is by going healthy. Yes, this might be a scary thought to a lot of you, but your health should always be your main priority. There are plenty of healthy foods out there that are bound to tickle your tastebuds as well. Let’s start with something easy, ingredients for a steak stir fry. It is something a little different, but something that is bound to taste amazing. Usually, people go for chicken, a good tender piece of steak is going to work wonders. All you’ll need is a flat piece of steak, they’re usually a lot cheaper. Beat it with a rolling pin to make it a little more tender and season it with salt and pepper. Leave it in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Then you want to start lightly frying it off in the pan. After around 3 minutes, start to add in your vegetables. Asparagus, mixed leaves and vegetables, and small sweet corn are going to be perfect. Throw in some soy sauce along with a packet of sauce of your choice from the shop. Add in some thin noodles and season with some more salt and pepper. You’re now in for a really tasty treat!
The next thing you can spice your cupboards up with is a bit of alcohol. We’re not trying to turn you into alcoholic, but there are some really tasty drinks you can try to help you wind down after a long week. All you need to do is get yourself a nice brand such as Everclear and pick a nice tasty cocktail to try. Find out which alcohol suits you best and experiment with different cocktails. There is plenty for you to try if you look for some online guides. You can also spice things up a little with still drinks such as elderflower water. It is so refreshing and adds a spin on the usual squash or fizzy drinks you’re used to having.
So there are just a few ways in which you can spice up your cupboards this year. There are so many more additions you could try, you just need to be a little more adventurous than you usually would do.
