Taking care of one’s health is imperative especially during these trying times. Boost your immune system and make your tummy happy by preparing these simple yet delicious meals

Cooking may be challenging and intimidating for some, especially when one is tasked to prepare a hearty yet scrumptious meal. Now, with more and more restaurants closing, deliveries facing a tremendous bulk of customers, and having to stay indoors to combat the spread of COVID-19, we list down five delectable recipes that you can easily do at home:

Banana Nut Smoothie Bowl

Making a smoothie bowl requires minimal effort and takes very little time to make—which makes it a good at-home meal. Give yourself a dose of fibre and protein by recreating this simply delectable recipe from Creme de la Crumb:

Green Smoothie Bowl

This next smoothie recipe from Natasha's Kitchen is packed with antioxidants to combat free radicals as well as Potassium, Fibre, and vitamins A and C. And to make your smoothies extra rich and creamy, it is suggested to have your fruits frozen a day or two prior to making this meal. Plus, having your fruits stored in the freezer keeps them from going bad fast and keeps all their nutrients locked in!

  • 2 tsp. chia seeds
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries blueberries and/or raspberries

Red Quinoa with Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, and Poached Eggs
