When you cook regularly, even if it's just for yourself more often than not, cooking can become mundane. When you fall into a routine, it can start to seem like more of a chore than anything, but it doesn't have to be that way with your culinary experience! Read on for how you can shake things up in your kitchen to make the process a little more enjoyable.

Experiment with Herbs and Spices
Experimenting with any ingredients is an awesome way to kick the routine to the curb. But something about herbs and spices can take things to the next level. There are virtually endless combinations and uses of herbs and spices, and it can be really fun to see what you get from mixing different things together. It's also a healthy way to toss things up -- herbs and spices originate from different flowers, fruits, seeds, barks, leaves, and roots. In addition to helping mix things up, they also have antibacterial and antiviral properties and are full of B-vitamins and trace minerals. For example, the fennel bulb has Vitamin C which boosts the immune system, plus fiber which cuts down cholesterol. The health benefits of pollen are undeniable as well.

Make it Fun!
Maybe the health benefits of pollen aren't enough though. In that case, try to make your routine fun. If you live alone, this could be as simple as trying out a new recipe for the first time in a while, or maybe even making a cooking playlist to jam to while you cook.

Put a Twist on Tradition
Herbs and spices pack in incredible flavor, and many are very versatile. Fennel, for example, can be used in breads, salads, soups, sauces, and as a dry rub for meats. Take one of your traditional dishes and add something exotic to it. You'll be surprised at how much just one addition makes a difference.
