Hate Cooking at Home? Practical Tips for Doing It Anyway

How To Start Cooking at Home

  • Cooking at home isn't much of a hassle when you plan things ahead. Weekly meal plans exist and are a trend that's easy to follow.
  • Schedule it so it happens.
  • Home cooking includes investing in the right tools like quality knives, pots and pans because it makes cooking essentialy more fun to do. You can pair cooking while listening to music or a podcast, anything you enjoy doing.
  • Keep it realistic. You don't have to cook 90% of the time, set aside 30 mins for cooking and 10 mins for decluttering your fridge.
  • Keep it simple. Repeat often. You don’t get bonus points for complexity or variety.
  • Have 3-5 go-to recipes. The more you make a recipe, the easier it will become and the less mental resistance you’ll feel when you think about making it.
