Millions of Britons spend most of their lives eating the same seven 'safe meals', according to new research.
A study found a lack of time and confidence plays havoc with the typical person's meal plans, meaning 60 per cent of us eat the same dishes week after week.
One in four adults even cooks the same meal on the same day every week and has a strict rota in place.
Of those, the typical adult has the same meal schedule in place for nearly four years.
But around 13 per cent have eaten the same thing on the same days of the week for 10 years or more.
Of the 2,000 adults polled - 27 per cent said they prefer to cook British meals rather than international dishes.
I find this incredible. I will admit rarely does a week go by that doesn't feature a pizza or a curry (even then there's a multitude of options) but aside from that I can't imagine having the same meal plan day in and day out. I do love to try new flavours (I have a bit of a thing about picking up at least 1 new item every time I go into the supermarket) but even day-to-day eating, I've probably got about 30 or 40 different dinners I like to regularly cycle through.
