I’m afraid of the germs in there so I’m thinking I want to cut grocery shopping down to once a month.
I’m also seeing if there is food delivery or pick up still being offered by the supermarket but I’m not sure during these times.
How low-carb is low-carb?
I have several great soup recipes that are or could be vegan, though some of them involve squash or sweet potatoes or carrots or beans. You could make a big batch and then either eat it over the course of the week or freeze some so you don’t get sick of it.
Most of my other low-carb recipes involve chicken (though that’s been cleaned off the shelves, so looks like we’ll be eating strictly vegetarian for a while).
For low-carb snacks that don’t go bad too quickly, I like almonds a lot. Lentil-based pasta seems to be more available than wheat-based pasta, and it stores well. And of course, actual lentils and garbanzos and quinoa store well.
I tried to take advantage of Amazon’s food delivery — but while I could put everything I wanted in my cart, they didn’t have any delivery slots available. I’m hoping that that will ease up after the initial food-hoarding panic wears off.
