Taking care and keeping busy

In the recent announcement of the Government for us to stay home during this difficult and challenging time, I have recently been thinking about how on earth I am going to keep myself busy, happy and my brain ticking during this period. Because we are all not sure how long this would be, I spent the first week of the lockdown literally just watching catch up TV. But then I done that all...and then I started overthinking about worse case scenarios.
So I started speaking to friends and family, and then I had that light bulb moment...I decided to try new things that I normally wouldn't do. It was cooking.
Now you are probably thinking but I do cook anyways why on earth would I say that, but I want to cook more meals that are different, challenging but healthy as well. I really want to keep up with eating better, and eating  less processed meals
So that is what I have been doing this week.
So I started watching Jamie Oliver's keep cooking and carry on. It's a brilliant show, great meals for inexpensive price, but also you swap things for others if you don't have them. This is the difficulty at the moment because people were stockpiling stuff ( thank goodness that's stopped now because it was just ridiculous and selfish)
One of the meals is the chicken roast with vegetables. I have attached the picture. In total it takes an hour to make. Fifteen minutes preparation time, then it all goes in the oven for an hour. This tasted really nice, will definitely do this again

How are you keeping yourself entertained during this time? Let me know your thoughts

As of the 5th April 2020 the death toll for the virus has rapidly increased, so please please stay at home and only go out if necessary

I really want to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful NHS for striving on to fight this despite lack of equipment, support and funding, we wouldn't be here without you

  6. I try to eat vegetables to boost my immune system during all this situation with covid. I think certain raw foods are by far the healthiest choice, but all food must be cleaned before eating.

  8. I see everyone is eating and gaining weight, but i decided that i want to lose weight during all this. I have been making healthy meals and doing some excesses. We need to find something positive in all this.

  9. I stockpiled so much stuff that i don't know what to do with them now, those are essential but still you can't make anything without some other things that i don't have.
