During this global pandemic, both the way of cooking and purchasing food have taken a full turn. The difference is pronounced by more people having to work from home and having to stay home with a full house meaning you have to have enough food at any one time.

You'll need some hacks to help you out, especially if you don't want to go all extra. After all, not all of us have the luxury of shopping in markets or grocery stores, which is where the cooking actually begins.

Keep the recipes easy

This is definitely not the time to try out recipes that take hours of your time. Not only will they actually stress you out, but also time seems to be so limited. Look for easy recipes or prepare meals that don't need strict recipes.

Make a balanced diet

A balanced diet is all you need to ensure your immune system is on the high. Know that, since everyone is at risk of infection, food is your first defense on offering natural medicine. Ensure you get some of the items through online grocery shopping and come up with healthy, balanced meals.

Meal prepping

  2. 1. How to clean your aluminum cookware without ruining them
  3. 2. Four eating habits to embrace for easier budgeting
  4. 3. Ingredient of the week: Chia seed oil
  5. 4. Kitchen gadget: Tabletop swirl spice rack

This saves you time and effort. In truth, staying and working from home can get boring and lower your morale for cooking.

As such, you can set aside a day where you actually prep your ingredients that will last you, say, a week. Pack these in zip long bags or freezer Tupperware, then store. This way, when you want to make something, it's as easy as possible.

Use wilting greens

No wastage is allowed. Not just to save on the finances at the moment when the economy is under performing, but also because no one wants to keep replacing items by always going to the store. Use your wilting vegetables to come up with creative foods like smoothies of blanch them and save for later use.

Use meal apps for inspiration

There are many meal apps currently available for your exploration. From quick-fix ideas to recipes that take ages, you'll find them all there. During this season, lower your stress by following a short step by step tutorial on these apps. They offer great inspiration for you and your cooking.
