Being stuck at home led many Americans to embrace cooking, but after months of eating their own food, some are finally fed up with it.
A new survey conducted by Sun Basket finds:
- 55% of Americans say doing so much cooking at home has left them feeling fatigued.
- Most people cooked an average of nine meals a week.
- But apparently there wasn’t much variety, with the average person admitting that since the start of the coronavirus crisis they cooked the same meal 28 times.
- So, what’s got folks fed up with cooking? Well, the survey finds the most fatiguing aspects of cooking include:
- Prep work (46%)
- Clean up (43%)
- Planning meals for the week (42%)
- Cooking (35%)
- Collecting ingredients (34%)
- Waiting for food to be ready (28%)
- Because of this fatigue, 53% of Americans say they are eating more takeout and delivery.
- For this reason, 55% say they are eating more unhealthy foods.
Time is apparently a big issue for most home cooks as well.
- 69% say they wish it wouldn’t take so long to make a healthy dinner.
- If they had it their way, it would take the average person only 12 minutes to make a healthy and delicious meal.
