#QUARANTINEMEALS | You Gotta Eat This!
Living in a world facing one of its biggest threats with COVID-19, a lot of us are forced to remain in doors. Quarantined of sorts. While our day usually transitions from waking up, working remotely, exercising, Netflix, Hulu and Social Media. In between all those activities we’re EATING! Hopefully, you’re eating healthy… or somewhat healthy!
Although my daily routine pretty much consists of all of the above, I do however dedicate time to be CREATIVE. Creativity, at least for me has allowed myself to escape the crib and keeps my mind occupied on fun activities that challenge me to be creative. Whether I’m writing an article, curating a Playlist (be sure to check out Quarantine Raps: Curated by DJ EFN and Myself!), or cooking a delicious meal with my family… creativity is key… creativity is fun!
So with that being said, I reached out to the homie Premium Pete and pitched him the idea of #QuarantineMeals. I want to dedicate these articles on meals, somewhat simple, somewhat healthy, that people can easily make at home.
Whether you’re making these meals solo, with a quarantine crush, family or your loved ones, I hope these meals bring you joy and take your mind off the stress going on. Even if its only for the time it takes you to cook and eat your meals.
Along with my stories, I’ll be sharing photos, videos, recipes and continue to update the playlist! lol.
If you have some favorite meals that you’d love to share, drop a line! Hit me up and let me know what you’re cooking, who knows we might feature it next time!
With that being said, I hope you all enjoy these #QuarantineMeals. Please let me know how they taste and if you’ve enjoyed creating them!
