|Basic, Everyday Food Choices Should Not Get Boring
My DIY Approach to Keeping Everyday Edibles Not-that-BoringTake the example of eggs and this is how I can sustain a novelty value on them [largely because of my wife also]:
Saying NO can Help
Reserve a no-egg day. Expel it from your day. Create a aspirational value in some way. You can reserve certain days in a week for this. Due to purely religious reasons, I cannot have eggs on Tuesdays. You can keep a bread-free weekend or have no cereals on the first two days of the week.
Manipulated the System, Create a Shortage
Don't rush to the market every time eggs are exhausted. You can wait a day. Allow yourself to be slightly famished. These are simple ways to create days of not having the means to foods that have become more like everyday supplies. Don't shop for them so regularly. If you feel irritated when you run out of your favorite sandwich bread, just think of it as a time for a short break...not the type that Ross took and wrecked havoc. A more sane approach please!
Get Creative, Have It Every Day, in a New Way
Never have the same type of eggs every day. Mix the grand preparations with the most fundamental options. Juggle scrambled, veggied-up, highly-peppered, hard-boiled, cheesy eggs and sauteed boiled eggs. You can also change the time of having your daily eggs. Swap between morning and evening unless night-time eggy things make you gaseous
- have eggs with different types of breads [swinging with different partners]
- have eggs with different type of pickles [egg swinging is legal]
- expose eggs to overwhelming ingredients like ginger or garlic on different days [kill the primary taste]
