Piggyback- getting food out

Just my opinion here, but I think we should all be only eating at home right now. I told my dd not to even ask for food out.

My ds 19 is a kitchen manager and their kitchen is super strict and clean and he told us we should not get food out nor is he. He said in his restaurant at least 10 people are in contact with your food before you are.

Stay home friends. Hopefully we can prevent ourselves from becoming Italy.

10 day ago. I miss it so much! But a very small inconvenience in the big picture of things. Just feel sorry for people in the food industry for their livelihood.

I am only eating at home as well, which I'm not too happy about it. One of the reasons I did have to buy a lot of "extra" food is that I'm not used to eating at home for every meal at all- not even close!

We eat out too much, so I told my husband weeks ago we need to eat at home. He had a hard time sticking to this but now that there are confirmed cases in our state, we will not be eating out for a long time. We bought some convenience food like would and frozen dinners to help us out at times we don't have time or maybe can't cook. I want to start freezing portions of each real meal for a later time. It's going to take making new habits but it's worth it.

Yes it will hurt the food industry workers. If restaurants shut down my ds will not have income. We just have no way to know what is coming. Scary feeling.

I just ran to the store to stock up on pet supplies and beverages (if I have to eat at home every meal, I need my diet pop/sparkling water!)

Traffic wasn't any lighter at all and I saw tons of people in line at fast food restaurants. I also heard the bars were still packed for St. Patrick's day yesterday. I always go out and was so disappointed to miss it, but I stayed home. It seems like people aren't really taking this seriously.

We get takeout quite a bit too, so it will feel a little odd fixing our own food at home so often, but we'll do it.

I try to always keep a few lemons and salad ingredients, but if you don't eat it up quickly, it goes bad fast. I don't always feel like eating salads for a few days in a row.

We have ingredients for ground turkey tacos and potstickers.

We live rurally and we have a 20 minute drive to resturants and fast food so on weekends and break we ALWAYS eat at home almost exclusively.

This was why I had to buy extra food last week -I wasn't trying to be crazy and do a run on the stores but when we stay home we eat A LOT MORE groceries. While at home we don't eat out And in my daughters case she snacks/eats more just becuase at home we have more access to food she is willing to eat. i probably do too but I like to think I don't since I put all my food in myfitnesspal and I eat the same mount of calories regardless but I definitely feel more like snacking.

I have eaten out a few times in the past week. I won't be doing so anymore. I stocked up on groceries and will be eating here.

I reevaluated our eating out after a friend pointed out restaurant workers are one of the groups most likely to go to work when not feeling since they only get paid if they show up for their shifts. There are just so many things to consider with this social distancing!!!
