Its so bland eating things like rice, chicken and veg..I am trying to eat healthier and looked online for ideas and all suggestions lack flavour and would leave me starving. Also eating healthier isn’t even that cheap really.

That's what herbs and spices are for. There are definitely thousands of really tasty meals that are mainly chicken, veg and rice.

It is, you just need to find the right dishes.

A lot of Asian food is considered quite healthy (minus the deep-fried stuff) and is really tasty too.

Because it is often made by morons with no concept of seasoning.

You are not forced to eat healthy food every day. I don't do this too, but three times a week. Have five or six recipes I like to eat and the rest is food I feel good with myself.

All I eat are vegetables. They taste like heaven to me. I love broccoli. All you need is seasoning. There are also different ways to cook vegetables: Steam, grill, fry! If i’m feeling lazy (which is often ngl) I’ll pop a frozen veg bag in the microwave and with a little salt, it tastes sooo good. I hate fruits (and I don’t eat meat) so I have to get in most of my nutrients through veg.
