Welcome to our new normal. I’m a mom of two young boys in elementary school in Westport, CT, and due to a big outbreak of coronavirus here, we’re pretty much on lockdown. Schools and gyms are closed and restaurants are open for pick up/take out only. So, in addition to being a working mom, I’m now a homeschooler of two kids, a speech and occupational therapist, and a music, art, and Spanish teacher. One thing that’s keeping me sane (at least a little?!) during this unprecedented time is MOVEMENT. I am super grateful that it’s almost spring, and the weather is allowing us to get outdoors and PLAY. Even while social distancing, there are so many ways to keep moving!
As we spend more time at home doing our part to slow the spread of coronavirus, many of us are cooking regularly—for stress relief, because restaurants may be closing, and because, well, we’re home. But once our stock of fresh fruits and veggies dwindles, that doesn’t mean we have to resort to plain canned soup or rice and beans. Here are 12 delicious pantry recipes you’ll want to keeping making well after coronavirus is behind us!
During these times, nothing gets us through like sweet treats – and baking! Check out this delicious – and easy – flourless peanut butter cookie recipe from Dana White!!
Meatballs are one of those go-to meals that every mom needs in her tool bag. Not only do kids love them as much as adults, but they can be customized to everyone’s preference and dietary restrictions. Celiac disease? Use gluten-free breadcrumbs. Trying to limit white carbs? Put over spaghetti squash noodles or chickpea pasta. Don’t have time to cook? Use your slow cooker, or make a big batch and freeze for a later meal. This Whole 30-approved version comes straight from Whole 30 founder Melissa Urban!
