Almost 2 years into pandemics, we got sick and tired of pretty much everything. I know for a fact that for me, one big source of tiredness is cooking and meal planning.

It often feels like you need a ton of work just to make a quick meal that you and your family are going to inhale in 3 minutes, which leaves you with a bunch of dirty dishes. And a few hours later, dang it, everyone is hungry again. It is an endless cycle. I ate bananas and peanut butter directly from the jar for dinner many more times than I would like to admit. That’s an easy and well-balanced meal, right?

The worst part is that I used to love to cook. I saw it as a creative outlet, a new adventure into the world of flavors, a social event, and something that brings people together.
