Do you ever feel like you don’t want to cook? Sure, you’re probably hungry, but the motivation to start a meal just isn’t there. Don’t worry, we understand. While cooking is a life skill, it’s not something everyone is excited to do. The lack of cooking motivation can happen at any time. You could be tired, but that’s not always the case. But there are solutions to this problem. You could dine out or get food delivered. However, those options add up because of the taxes, fees, and tips involved.

In a TikTok video by content creator @wellbymel_, she continues her series on grocery ideas for people who don’t like to cook. In part 48 of the series, she puts together a tasty summer recipe to satisfy those hunger pains. Making dinner doesn't get much easier than this!

That salad looks delicious! We’re all about the arugula and prosciutto. The combination of different flavors makes this a winner. Plus, it’s cost-effective and simple to make. Let’s see how the TikTok viewers responded. User @Brittney Hart Beatty wrote, “I just made a grilled cheese with peaches, prosciutto, balsamic, mozzarella, and arugula for dinner. It’s such a good combo!” @CountryboiiLoveyouuu replied, “I NEED THIS SERIES YESSS.” That recipe was fantastic. Let’s look at part 46.

Yes, bring on the homemade chicken sandwich! You don’t need to eat out when you have the right stuff in your kitchen. But are the TikTok viewers willing to try this dish? User @Abby Lewis said, “As a 4-day postpartum mom with a 2-year-old, these videos are lifesaving. THANK YOU SO MUCH.” @DKona13 remarked, “Oh my Gosh!! Trying this for sure!” That’s fantastic, @DKona13. Let’s look at one more recipe for inspiration.

We love our three-ingredient recipes. This one hits the mark because it’s simple, affordable, and tastes good. Did the TikTok community like it? User @evelynlucille said, “Frozen blueberries in Greek yogurt is just so incredibly good.” @Patricia V suggested, “This is my favorite breakfast. Add some honey, and it’s even better!” Mmm, honey sounds like an excellent addition. If you want to learn more helpful recipes, visit @wellbymel_’s TikTok channel.
