Shopping is becoming a stressful thing under quarantine but here are some top tips to help!
Buy half your veg frozen, half fresh
Mixing this up allows for everyone to get access to different products. Frozen veg and fruit is not less nutritious and is a great way to ensure you are getting those colours in.
Half your meat and fish serving and combine other protein
Everyone is talking about pantry staple recipes but the bloody pantry items are not in the shops! Again being mindful of other shoppers if you halved your meat and fish serving and combined beans, pulses or greek yoghurt this will bump your protein intake up to the normal serving size, and allow us all to have access to more variety.
As much as possible try to shop at small veg stalls, newsagents, markets etc. You will be surprised what you can buy in these local places and keeps you out of the large supermarkets.
Use alternative online suppliers
Lots of suppliers and companies are doing food drops that may help with getting some of your usual foods. This may take a little research but well worth doing.
Use supplement companies to buy "food"
Bulk powders, MyProtein and Protein Works all sell “food” as well! Check them out and stock up on nut butters, oats, seeds, bars and all sorts.
It is also a great time to get a good protein powder to stock up on. Great to ensure you are hitting your protein targets by stirring into oats, yoghurt, smoothies or to bake with. We recommend WHEYD
