Do you ever get bored with food??

Just what it says.

I cook all the time, and try to stay diverse and not to eat out too much, but lately, its just become like I don't even care what I eat.


I don't spend tons on food, but i do eat a variety of things, but I just feel like I'm getting to a point of "yeah, had that....next" and there really hasn't been anything I want to cook.


I'm just wondering if others reach this point?

almost thinking maybe I should go for a month or two eating simple things like sandwiches and basic dishes just to see if it makes a difference.....

i TOTALLY agree.

seems my wife and i get into ruts sometimes. i really want to learn to make more complex meals, but i never have every ingredient for some of the recipes i see. patience is a factor too...with the kids, i just want to get food on the table and not spend hours prepping dinner.

worst part is...the wife is a creature of habit. she'd be happy if we had chili dogs, tuna helper, soup and cereal everyday. kills me sometimes.

loved that jumbalya thread you posted recently, budha...awesome prep and looked tasty.

I get bored with it sometimes....especially eating out. We sometimes eat out every day, for like weeks....it gets disgusting after a while and starts to taste the same. Then, we'll make an effort to cook at home, and we'll go out and spend like $250 on groceries. We'll cook for a few days, then get lazy, and after a few weeks most of the food gets tossed. It is a never-ending cycle...

I could eat rice just about every day though, and never get tired of it. I like rice and tuna, rice with sausage, beef, chicken.....

Like you guys, we do try to break up the type of food we eat. Chinese one night, then cook traditional at home, then mexican.

The other day, we went to this place called Boston Market. It was like home cooked food, chicken and cornbread, yams, greens etc... It was cheap, and SOOO good.

It's funny, there are probably 100 places to eat within a 5 mile radius, and we get stuck on where to go. Last night was TGI-Fridays, and I left disappointed. Not sure what I was expecting.

Bottom line, I guess we are all fortunate. Some people would kill to have these "problems." lol

Mike, you just need to watch more Molto Mario, lots of good ideas on that show.

you just need to go live out of a backpack for a month and you will relish food again. Take a hike In Yosemite or Utah, you can find some pretty remote places. After 3 weeks of eating freeze dried foods and rice I bet just about any food will seem alright.

This happens all the time to me. I do the cooking and try not to repeat a recipe for at least a month and a half if I can. It gets hard to come up with news stuff all the time. I must have a couple dozen cookbooks, and tried almost every recipe in them. Gets mighty expensive, buying some ingredients.

You guys should seriously try going on a strict diet. No processed, refined, sweetened foods. Just fruits, veggies, meats. Then every week pick 1 day and give yourself a 1 hour cheat window.

You have no idea how good food can really be until you do this. It is really fun actually Its kind of how I imagine taking heroin. You're freaking out all week and crabby and then you take that first bite and ahhhhhhh nothing else matters.

try it for 1 week its fun.

i think everyone has this problem. i don't care how diverse of crap i pull out of my ass to cook or of neat places to go out to eat at i still get bored.

one thing i've tried before is doing liquid diets for a week- kind of like what stone said. except it's just liquids. i'll do carnation instant breakfasts, diet coke, diet dew, crystal light etc till i'm blue in the face. then i go back to the regular food.

the only problem is doing this when you have a family. cooking food sucks when you're doing the liquids and you're trying to figure out meals for everyone else. if you can get around that- it seems to work.


oh, and when this fails- i've been doing the "Let's Dish" thing... where you go to the place and make your dishes you chose off the website. this has helped with the boredom, too and it's super convenient because even if it's just you eating or you and your woman you can divide the regular meals into smaller containers at the store for no extra charge.
