Planning meals, feeding the family and thinking about food in general have become central to our daily routine during the Covid-19 lockdown. We are trying to follow the #stayathome mantra but in the process of doing so are finding ourselves in a predicament: We are almost always within close proximity of the kitchen and stress eating is becoming a temptation.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue and the Coronavirus Pandemic will end. In the mean time we need to focus on health and nutrition – in particular what to eat during lockdown to ensure we are consuming everything our body needs to keep our immune system and wellbeing in top shape.
Pass The Remote!
Celebrate Easter remotely? The upcoming holidays – meaning Easter, Passover and other Holy holidays and celebrations – may feel quite strange this year. The idea of remote celebrations is not a practice we are accustomed to. These occasions are traditionally a time for gathering with friends and family around a table or at a place of worship. However, with social distancing in place, families will need to find creative ways to get together for their quarantine festivities.
Covid-19’s Frozen Food Fallout
You may have heard the expression “old age doesn’t come alone”. The Coronavirus is not unlike old age in the sense that it has brought with it a heap of household baggage in terms of its impact on our grocery expenditure and eating habits. Never has there been a time since World War 2 when as a nation we have given so much thought to planning what we are going to eat, where we are going to source our food and how much we are going to spend on food – after of course we have reassured ourselves that we have enough toilet paper in the house. Frozen food is occupying a bigger part of our grocery budget in the quest to combat empty shelves at the grocery store by planning ahead and frozen prepared meal delivery services such as Healthy Gourmet Your Way are becoming a household staple.
