Stay home, stay safe, isolation, quarantine. These are all words that have been used regularly in our vocabularies lately. Although America and beyond is practicing social distancing and staying home as much as possible, there is still the need to focus on our health. This includes making healthy food choices.
Let’s explore cooking through the quarantine. Do you have a favorite dish that is your go-to meal? Spending more time than usual at home allows for exploration and experimentation, leading to edible delights. I must say, I’ve become reacquainted with my kitchen and have even pulled out the special china on occasion.
If you’re looking for inspiration or accountability with your healthy eating, partner with a friend or group. Check-in with each other, post pictures on your social media, share the journey. A fitness group that I belong to also focuses on healthy eating. We post pictures of meals we’ve created for the first time as well as tried and true go-to treats.
Below are simple meals that I’ve made and a couple from friends.
