How are you holding up? COVID-19 has sure turned the world as we know it upside down. Social distancing and social isolation have become our new reality. In fact, our current realities are much different today than two weeks ago and may look much different in weeks to come. In the words of Tom Hanks when he was diagnosed with Coronavirus, “Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?”
We are all trying to navigate this new world and doing the best we can. Part of that means cooking all of our meals at home and visiting the grocery store less frequently to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
As a nurse turned chef, it's always been important for me to share healthy recipes. Now that we are stocking our “pandemic pantries” we wanted to help you with your menu planning so you can enjoy cooking your way through this quarantine.
