Lisa Faulkner tells WW podcast that even celebrity chefs are running out of lockdown food ideas!

“I have lost the motivation to cook three meals at home every day.”

Can’t think of what to cook for supper? Are the kids moaning about your offerings and asking for takeaways? You are not alone, because Celebrity MasterChef winner Lisa Faulkner tells the Wellness That Works podcast by WW (WeightWatchers) that she and her classically trained chef husband John Torode are in the same boat.

Lisa, 49 who has written cookery books and creates food alongside her husband in John and Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen on ITV, says this is the worst of all the lockdowns and that many days have been saved by a humble fish finger sandwich.

“We were so proactive in lockdown 1 - going for regular walks etc and we said ‘We’re going to cook everything from scratch and try new ingredients to look after our wellbeing’ but now it feels very different. I have lost the motivation to cook three meals at home every day,” says Lisa.

“Tacos are a big family crowd pleaser for us, along with nachos and wraps and now the kids say ‘Are we really going to have that again?’ We try and support local restaurants and enjoy it when somebody else has cooked for a change. A man dropped our food off the other day and John answered the door in his pyjamas and the guy went ‘Oh it’s you!’”

• Lisa confesses that she didn’t want to do Celebrity Masterchef at first
