2. Learn New Cultures Of Food

My second tip is to try out new cultures of food. Whether it’s Mexican, Korean or Indian, try it out! You will never know what flavors you will end up loving if you don’t try something new.

Different cultures use a different set of flavors and spices so you will surely experience some new tastes that just may become your next favorite.

3. Don’t Deem Plant-based Fats As Being Bad

In the high-carb plant-based community, plant-based fats can be deemed as detrimental to your health. Including some plant-based fats in moderation is definitely and should be included. Foods like avocados, tahini, nuts and seed are great examples.When you include these foods you’ll have tasty satisfying food that will surely add to the variety of what you normally eat.

4. Watch ‘Cook With Me’ Videos

I think that watching ‘Cook With Me’ videos are a great way to learn how different foods and flavors work together. Check these videos wherever you find them. I’ve listed two excellent YouTube channels below where you can find these types of videos often.

5. Shop At New Places

The last and final tip is to start shopping at new places that don’t have the same groceries that you are used to. Try out farmers’ markets or Asian markets. Immerse yourself in these places, ask questions about the different foods and learn about how you can incorporate them in to your diet.

These are the 5 best tips I could think of for introducing more variety in to your diet. If you have any yourself, leave them below.

  1. Thanks for the coupon code guys! I’ve been debating about buying an instant pot for the last little bit and I think I might take the plunge. My husband has fallen in love with refried beans without the refry and the idea of making it even faster … Save me so much time cause ain’t nobody got time for dat. Anyways loved your Fullycooked Ebook and looking forward to getting the instant pot one as well. Kudos to all the hard work you do and the tiny house is also looking amazing. …. peace!

  2. I absolutely love this! I did watch a video of MommyTang and she said that the best way to lose weight is to eat simple, but I get bored way too easily! Once I started to develop a serious love for curries–Indian, Thai and Japanese–I really began to experiment with vegan cooking and realized that you don’t need tons of thick milks or even full fat coconut milk to yield a creamy consistency! I actually use pureed cauliflower which is very mild and almost feels like a really thick stew. Otherwise, I agree with everything else in this post! I even found a local Asian supermarket where I can purchase my favorite Japanese sweet potatoes and Okinawan sweet potatoes for a wonderful price!
