"Good nutrition is crucial for health, particularly in times when the immune system might need to fight back. Limited access to fresh foods may compromise opportunities to continue eating a healthy and varied diet. It can also potentially lead to an increased consumption of highly processed foods, which tend to be high in fats, sugars and salt. Nonetheless, even with few and limited ingredients, one can continue eating a diet that supports good health." - World Health Organization

Check out these tips from the Who's WHO of health along with our recommendations of the perfect recipes to make to get through self-quarantine.

Lower Your Intake of Salt and Sugar

In many countries, 50–75% of the salt intake comes from the foods we eat.

Avoid adding extra salt when cooking and to your meals at the table. Try adding fresh or dried herbs and spices for added flavor instead.
