Generally, people find cooking and eating healthy boring. This is one reason why they are apprehensive about making healthy food at home, as they don’t find the process of cooking invigorating or exciting. However, this shouldn’t be a reason to stop eating healthy, because if you continue eating processed and junk food, your weight will increase and you might end up facing a number of health problems. One way you can ‘spice up’ your family meal prep sessions is adding some music for cooking. To make things easier for you, here is a look at the best music for cooking healthy meals for your family:
Focus on Variety
The first and foremost thing you should keep in mind that sticking to the same genre or artist will eventually get repetitive and monotonous, and that is exactly the things you are trying to avoid. So, what you need to do is come up with a playlist which incorporates a variety of music genres. You can include songs by all your favorite artists. This way, you will get to hear a new tune every few minutes, and even if you have to cook for more than an hour, the variety will keep the music interesting and pleasing to hear.
Add the ‘Guilty Pleasures’
There is no point in denying the fact that you might like a few songs which other people generally consider inferior or poorly written. In fact, these are the kind of songs you might feel you need to apologize for liking if someone catches you listening to them. However, at the same time, these ‘guilty pleasures’ can provide a motivation boost and make you sing along. So, it doesn’t matter if you like Achy Breaky Heart. Add it to your music for cooking playlist without any embarrassment so you can cook healthy.
Infectious Music Works
Last, but not the least, there are some types of songs which make you feel great and excited. These ‘infectious’ songs include power ballads and classical music, two disparate genres but both of them are equally effective at getting you in the right mood to cook healthy. If you love these genres, it’s even better for you.
One thing you should keep in mind is that there no one size fits all solution when it comes to selecting music for cooking. What works for others might not work for you. This is why you should mix and match till you come up with the perfect playlist you can listen to when cooking.
