Ben Brown explains…

If you’re lacking motivation to cook and prepare foods, setting goals can be very helpful. A great goal that simplifies things is to eat more variety in your diet, it will get you eating more healthy food, widening your nutrient intake, and push poor food choices out of your diet without you realising it. Try aiming for four different fruits and vegetables daily, and four different types of fresh or dried herbs and spices each day. Write them down and make it a personal daily challenge.  If you want to really get some culinary inspiration, then why not go global?  Choose a different country for each day of the week, and learn about some new cooking traditions and methods, not to mention new flavours and textures. Food variety is so important because research shows that those who have lower variety and lack the motivation to cook consume lower levels of important minerals, vitamins, and antioxidant nutrients. All the best!
