During the COVID-19 isolation period it is important to stock up on pantry and freezer food items to last in your household. However, this is not a call-to-action to stock up on confectionary and fried snacks. In fact, now more than ever is a great time to fill your cupboards and freezers with healthier foods and try out some new recipes. As mentioned in our first blog, it is important to consume macro and micro nutrients from all food groups to maintain health, keep our immune systems healthy, and continue to manage or prevent chronic disease.
