Want to make mealtime more fun this year? Or perhaps you’re looking to improve your cooking skills?
From cooking meatless meals to learning a new cuisine, be inspired by these New Year’s resolutions for your kitchen.

Go vegetarian once a week

Going meatless once a week offers plenty of benefits for your health, your wallet, and the environment. It’s a great way to introduce more fruits and veggies into your diet, along with beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.
Introduce a meat-free day into your week and try to stick to vegetarian dishes for each meal. You’ll find endless vegetarian recipes online for plenty of variety.

Use your cookbooks

In the era of the internet, it can be easy to forget about your cookbooks. If your recipe books are collecting dust or hiding under the sieve in the bottom drawer, whip them out and put them to use. You might discover a new go-to dish hidden between the pages!

Try a new cuisine each month

Sure, tacos are great, but why not try branching out and cooking food from a wider range of cultures?
From tasty Thai curries to fresh Japanese fare, there’s a whole world of delicious cuisines to sink your teeth into. Mix things up and try cooking a new cuisine every month – extra points if you can tick off a meal from each continent.

Eat more greens

A common resolution on many a list, eating more greens is something we could all stand to strive for. But if you’re not the biggest fan of vegetables, it can be hard to stick to.
Try sneaking greens into burgers, pizzas and omelettes to up your intake. If you’re really determined, you can even down your greens through a healthy smoothie or juice. New year, new blender!

Get the kids to cook once a month (with your help!)

This is a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen and spend some quality time together. Set your children the task of choosing a recipe, buying ingredients, and preparing a family dinner once a month.
Just be sure to supervise and be in charge of any cutting.
