Pandemic restrictions may make it a little more difficult to follow our typical dietary routine, but it’s now more important than ever to stick with what works — regular balanced meals, eating a variety of fresh food and drinking plenty of water.
We need to nourish our body with good nutrition and keep ourselves active to have a strong immune system and maintain our overall physical and mental health.
