#QUARANTINEMEALS | Volume 2
Welcome back to #QuarantineMeals! We hope you all had the chance to enjoy the meals we posted last week! If you haven’t had a chance be sure to check out Vol.1 of #QuarantineMeals.
While last week we featured meals that included beef and seafood, this week we are introducing healthy meals with chicken and a variety of salads….. We even included a Dessert! It’s all about balance right? Lol
Because we have shifted to a more stay at home lifestyle, the possibility of not getting your exercise has increased! That being said, this week we want to share more recipes that include veggies and chicken.
*Quarantine Tip* mix these recipes in with last weeks and you’ll have a more balanced weekly menu!
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!
I hope you all enjoy these #QuarantineMeals. Please let me know how they taste and if you’ve enjoyed creating them! #STAYHOME
