Cook healthy food during the pandemic and you’ll notice a big difference in how you look and feel. Although COVID-19 is a pandemic that’s caused a lot of changes to our daily routines. We must try our best to take care of our diets and health. It won’t make a difference practising good hygiene if you’re compromising your immune system and gaining unwanted weight because of poor diet and food choices. With limited space, it’s also tricky to get in as much physical activity as you may have got before.
However, dieticians explain that with some extra thought you can stay fit and healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. It’s also important to learn how to cook smartly.

Avocado Smash On Toast
This has got to be one of the most classic, Instagram meals in existence. However, it’s a really easy-to-cook option that is really healthy and only takes about ten minutes to prepare.
