In every single round I’ve gone I’ve had a few days where NOTHING is appealing, usually around day 20 or so. Seriously, you could take my biggest food weakness (it’s chocolate by the way!) and put it in front of me and I wouldn’t touch it.
Each time that this has happened, I’ve found something that has helped snapped me out of that. If you’re at that stage, I hope one of these recipes will tempt you.
Tostones – Be still my beating heart, these are AMAZING! If you’ve never had them before, run to your grocery store and get some. No, they don’t taste like bananas–it’s more starchy like a potato. You can get the recipe here.
Smashed Potatoes No complicated recipe here. Just grab some little potatoes and toss them in some EVOO. Add some seasonings of your choice and roast them. When they’re almost done, take something flat and squish them (you don’t have to get all crazy and actually smash them!). Brush a little EVOO on them and put them back in the oven for 10 minutes. They’re crunchy and perfect with pesto!
Chicken Chili This recipe from the Whole30 Slow Cooker cookbook (I did it in the Instant Pot instead) did the trick–food boredom gone! It’s taste hint of lime that did the trick for me! If you haven’t got the book, it’s worth getting–lots of great recipes to choose from!
So, these are my food boredom busters. What are yours?
