What is the hardest part about being an adult? For some, it’s paying bills (seriously, they suck). Other people might find the responsibilities that come along with having a job to be the worst part, and we can’t say we blame them. If you ask us, the hardest part about being an adult is neither of those things, it’s cooking. There comes a point when you realize that while delicious, an In-N-Out only diet isn’t going to sustain you forever (let that sink in for a minute). You have to start incorporating vegetables, grains, fiber (whatever that is), and a whole lot of other things to your daily diet. As if that wasn’t enough, you have to take all of those ingredients and cook them in a way that tastes good. If you don’t have any go-to recipes or are simply looking to try something a little different, we’ve included a few of our favorite recipes down below. The best part? They only require 3 ingredients to make.

Let’s begin.
