Adults spend three YEARS of their lives cooking – but still think their meals are 'basic'

THE average adult will spend THREE YEARS of their lives cooking – but many admit they're hardly cooking up a storm with their ‘basic’ grub, a study has found.

Most Brits spends seven hours and 37 minutes a week making their meals – that is a whopping 17 days a year.

But Londoners spend more than nine hours a week over the hot rings.

The typical brekkie takes 22 minutes to slap up, while lunch takes half an hour.

Evening meals take the longest at 49 minutes, but only 23 minutes to chow down.

A quarter even feel time in the kitchen feels like a 'chore' while a third admitted their cooking is ‘safe'.

While 18 per cent dream of having more time to cook impressive dishes.

The study also found four in 10 have four ‘go-to’ meals they stick with – while the average Brit says its been 27 days since they last rustled up something new.

Almost a quarter blamed a lack of creativity and a fifth admitted fear of failure in dipping their toes into a new dish.
