Isn’t it much easier to stay in and order food than to strain yourself and cook an elaborate meal?
Guess what? This is the third year in a row, when McDonald’s McDelivery is being celebrated around the globe, and so, on 19th September, 2019 we encourage you all to enjoy ‘McDelivery Night In’.
Whether you can cook or not, irrespective of your gender, we’ve come up with nine compelling reasons for you to take a break from cooking this season! Here’s why:
- Break the monotony
Everyday meals can often get monotonous. Cooking the same old daal-chawal or a boring nihari consumes so much energy and time. And to top it all, if the taste doesn’t turn out to be the same as your mom’s, you’ll only end up getting disgruntled.
- When you can’t decide what to cook
Thinking constantly about what you have to cook everyday will never let you be more productive in life, unless you have your life sorted (which most of us don’t). Won’t you love to indulge in a ready-made meal than to browse through various recipes all day long?
- Change is important
Studies suggest that change is essential to cut the clutter from daily life. You can explore your other-than-cooking qualities that will ultimately benefit your new ideas and increased commitment.
- It’s okay to spend on your favorite food chain once in a while
Are you thinking too much about the size of your wallet? Just know that guilty pleasures not only satisfy your growling hunger pangs but also give you the liberty to do what you really want to do in life in the longer run. Small steps matter.
- If you’re a perfectionist
Average food menu might not appeal you and it’s impossible to work things out perfectly when you have so much up your sleeves. You’re still going to end up hungry and get fast food anyway.
- It’s time to get a dose of mindfulness – Do nothing but eat
Sometimes it is important to sit back, relax and do nothing. Don’t you really crave for those five extra minutes just for yourself?
- Spend quality time with your friends and family
The time you spend running back and forth cooking for everyone leaves your loved ones unattended. You can instead use that time to build stronger, healthier bonds with your friends and family.
- Don’t exhaust yourself in this heat
If a box instructs you to stir something 50 times, every 30 seconds or any of that nonsense, are you seriously going to? You will try to find a shortcut. Unfortunately, with a lot of dishes if you do this, the results don’t turn out right. It’s too hot these days anyway, so don’t overburden yourself sweety!
- You get more time to scroll on social media 😉
OK, it is one thing to go grocery shopping for the essentials, but to go shopping for ingredients is mind-numbing, and there is a 100 percent chance that you will forget something or the other. The idea of navigating through a supermarket just so you can get 20 ingredients that will only make one recipe? No thanks, how about you scroll down your newsfeed or tap on to the stories you’ve missed lately?
