Cooking is either a chore or a passion, there never really seems to be any in-between. Recently we have all had to adapt to the fact that our favourite restaurants, take-outs and cafes have been forced to close during this pandemic. With the UK lockdown meaning we should only leave the house to purchase essentials it can be difficult to plan out what to eat.
We have put together a list of a few easy, healthy meals to make without having to purchase fresh food daily. Whether you are taking a packed lunch on the road or looking for something healthy to eat in isolation, we have some ideas for you!
Buy frozen vegetables - Buying frozen vegetables means you won’t have to leave the house regularly to buy fresh. They also come pre-chopped so you can skip the faffing and get straight onto cooking.
Meal plan - planning your meals means that you will only buy in what you need. This means you wont have to run back out to the shop to buy forgotten bits and pieces. Something which definitely helps with staying isolated and staying home.
Freeze meals - It’s always good to have some plastic boxes handy to freeze leftovers for another day.
