8 Impressive-But-Foolproof Recipes to Switch Up Your Mundane Meal Routine

I’m the type of person who can’t eat the same thing two days or two weeks in a row. I get tired of certain meals and food items quickly, and I’m constantly looking to switch it up in the kitchen!

As a therapist who values her spare time (and energy), quick, healthy, and easy-to-prepare meals are of the utmost importance for me from week to week.

If you’re looking for fresh, new, and EASY meals to spice up (pun intended) your usual food routine, look no further!

I’m not going to reinvent the wheel.

I’m not a food blogger, whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I am a proud consumer of food blogger content. I appreciate them and their craft! (I even included this as a fun fact in my About section, haha!)

Below are some of my favorite foolproof Pinterest meals. Click the links to follow to the recipes! (Recipes and photos are not my own, but adopted from Pinterest.)

1. Lasagna Soup

Lasagna SoupOne pot, you say?! That is probably the feature I love most about this recipe; fewer dishes to wash afterwards!

This soup is my favorite! It’s loaded with flavor and a great way to switch up your traditional lasagna dish.

I usually add about double-to-triple the amount of suggested red pepper flakes, to give it the kick that I desire. And don’t forget the mozzarella and ricotta cheese for topping!


2. Cajun Chicken & Sausage Alfredo

Another one-pot meal = more time in your day that’s not spent washing a mountain of dishes.

This pasta is another one of my favorites that is packed with flavor.

You can even substitute and try different meats! (I use a turkey sausage.)


3. Thai Shrimp Soup

Skip the takeout and try making this easy, delicious soup from home! It’s another one of my absolute favorites.

I typically have to add in a good amount of salt to achieve the flavor I most enjoy. But after that, it’s gone within minutes! Yum.


4. Garlic & Lemon Chicken with Green Beans and Red Potatoes

Love this one! I typically opt for fresh green beans instead of the canned ones, though.

And it’s only three (3) steps! Can’t get much easier than that. Give it a try; you won’t be disappointed!


5. Corn & Sausage Bisque


This faux-fancy bisque is sooooo hearty and delicious!

I complete this recipe with a batch of corn muffins. Perfection!


6. Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls

Better than takeout and made with just a few ingredients!

It’s also probably the quickest of these 7 meals.

The teriyaki chicken bowl is definitely a staple in my household, and great for meal prepping for the week ahead.


7. Creamy Pesto Chicken and Bowtie Pasta


This creamy pasta is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! There are few things I love more than pesto sauce.

The. Best.

8. Salmon with Avocado-Mango Salsa and Coconut Salsa

Last, but certainly not least, this is one of my all-time favorite meals.

It’s a great spin on the usual salmon and rice meal! The coconut rice paired with the mango-avocado salsa is to die for!

Give it a try.
