Eating for Life

You can get weak if you don’t eat while staying indoors in the time of the pandemic.

I have the opposite dilemma. Most people snack on comfort food in times of stress. I don’t ordinarily feel like eating in this time.

Though I’m Italian I eat to live I don’t live to eat.

I urge everyone who must stay home to keep up with eating as healthfully as you can. Should you need to compromise remember that this is only a temporary setback.

I’m not a fan of having soup for lunch every day. I’d rather make a salad.

Since the availability of a food delivery is unpredictable I understand the need to make temporary adjustments.

In New York City you can dial 311 to request that food be delivered to you.

Though I miraculously was able to score a FreshDirect time slot I was shut out again after that.

Since living life in this pandemic is a week-by-week and often day-by-day reality this is where I say it pays to adapt and be flexible.

If readers can do only one thing, I would urge you to eat as healthfully as you can.
