“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times

During this tough time where many of us are in self-quarantine to protect ourselves, our families, friends, and community. Being at home for a vast amount of time means we need to make a few modifications to our daily routine and diet. We have to take on the responsibility of social distancing by opting for coffee at home instead of going to our favourite cafe down the block. With little planning, our food and beverage choices can still be tasty and nutritious. 

Here are some must-haves in your kitchen:

Shelf-Stable Milk — Nowadays, there are is a large variety of milk options from ultra-pasteurized cow’s milk and soy milk to almond milk and oat milk. The good thing about shelf-stable milk is that they have a long shelf life and can be used as an ingredient in many home-cooked meals and of course, in your morning coffee.

Whole Grains — According to Boston registered dietitian Elizabeth Ward, she recommends having whole-grain tortillas, whole-grain bread, quinoa and other whole grains in your household. By combining these various grain options with lean proteins such as boneless, skinless chicken breasts, lean ground beef, and lean ground turkey breast you can create a delicious and guilt-free meal.

Long-Life Vegetables and Fruits — Some of the most important food groups we must consume daily are fresh vegetables and fruits. Having one that has a longer shelf life can be beneficial when being on lockdown at home. Vegetables such as carrots and celery can be stored in water, bell peppers, lettuces, and pea pods are great options. Alternatives also include items that can live outside the fridge like apples, lemons, limes, bananas, tomatoes, avocados, potatoes and onions. 

Snacks — Munching isn’t all bad when you have a nutritious snacks. Many dieticians recommend adding a variety of nuts to your daily meals. For example, having pecans, walnuts, almonds, and cashews are extremely valuable to incorporate into your diet as it adds protein and healthy fats.
