COVID cooking has changed the way we stock our pantry and freezer. Even the way we plan our menu for the week has been adjusted. Going out of the condo only once a week, helps us with our intention of keeping exposure to a minimum. Minimal exposure to outside elements keeps everyone safe and healthy. If I plan my menu well, and I am mindful of how I prepare our food, I can keep everyone’s immunity up as well. Thankfully, I was invited to share some of my menu planning tips and tricks for Mommy Mundo with the help of Lady’s Choice.
Kitchen Tips Made Easy
If you want to pick up some new tricks in the kitchen for your cooking arsenal, be sure to catch the video Nino and I put together for Mommy Mundo Followers. It will be released on the Mommy Mundo IGTV channel tomorrow, June 24th at 9pm.

Sure, fast food meal we grabbed at the drive-through window is a lot more convenient, but meal times with family aren’t called “magic bullets’ for no reason. As filmmaker and journalist Miriam Weinstein wrote, sharing a meal with your family “improves the quality of your daily life, your children’s chances of success in the world, your family’s health, and our values as a society.” Although meal preps require more time and effort, we can do meal planning to help us reduce meal time stress and improve nutrition.

Plus, I will be sharing an awesome recipe that my mother in law shared with me many years ago. This delicious chicken salad is usually requested whenever I attend summer pot lucks. The added bonus is that it feels really healthy with all the veggies that are mixed in.

There is space on this weekly meal plan for each of your meals, and for the shopping list on the side of your menu planner.
And because it’s always good to start with a LIST, (you guys know I LOVE lists) here is a Pantry Essentials List that Sabrina and I used for one of our events.
It just took a little bit of editing to make it appropriate for our current quarantine situation.
Tune in and WATCH!
