Demand for grocery delivery has gotten so popular thanks to Covid-19 that Amazon had to put new customers on a waitlist. With delivery slots seemingly impossible to snag even for those who'd already signed up, lots of people are relying more on their pantries and freezers for ingredients to make breakfast, lunch and dinner.

But cooking three times a day with what you've already got doesn't have to mean boring, flavorless food. According to Talia Koren, founder of the popular meal-prepping company Workweek Lunch, all you need are a few key ingredients and pieces of equipment to zhuzh up your everyday meals.

CNN talked to Koren about her favorite ways to keep mealtime interesting. From versatile flavor combinations to toppings that can brighten even the saddest bowl of rice and beans, we'll walk you through everything you need to keep mealtime exciting even when you can't leave your house.
