Mix Your Diet Up

I recently got sick of most of the food that I make for myself, so I opted to mix things up by buying a few cookbooks. Cookbooks are awesome, because you can sprawl out on the couch with them and decide what looks good to eat.

I opted for one paleo cookbook and one vegetarian cookbook. Conflicting philosophies, but those styles most closely mimic what I make in my everyday life. I love that the paleo cookbook includes lots of cheese-less recipes. I also tried replacing tortillas with lettuce leaves, something I’ve always mocked in the past. Now I get it. The lettuce is crisp and doesn’t leak or get soggy. I recommend it, regardless of whether it’s part of your diet or not.

If you’re stuck in a rut, get a new cookbook. Look for one that includes lots of healthy foods that you eat. and make a point of actually trying out a large number of the recipes. It will help break things up and make your diet more interesting.

    Good tip! I usually have a couple of things I really like to cook for myself but I get bored rather easily. Might consider buying a nice – healthy – cookbook soon!
