5 Tips that will help you be a domestic god(dess) during the lockdown even though it's hard to get everything you need right now
1.Plan your shop
Keep a shopping list on your phone and update as you run out of things and when planning your meals. If you have Alexa then utilise her shopping list feature and then get her to email or text you the list. When writing your list it’s a good idea to separate it out by the area in the supermarket e..g all the fruit and veg first and bread last as they are usually the first and last aisles in the supermarket respectively.
2. Get the basics
- cream cheese
- frozen veg/meat/fish
- easy to cook veg to ensure you get your five a day!
3. Prep as soon as you get your shopping home
4. Cook Quit Kit
Containers – to keep your prepared food (but you can use bowls if you need to)
Grater – quick to use and a great to add more veg to your meals
Microwave – fab for everything
Scales – keep them on your counter
Post it notes and pen – put recipes you like stick it inside a kitchen cupboard door.
Freezer bags and permanent pen – to keep track of what’s in your freezer and to freeze food in portions so you don’t have to defrost the whole lot
