By now, you’ve definitely heard a lot about social distancing and why it’s necessary. When you have a break from your third Zoom class of the day, there are many things you can do to pass the time. Obvious activities include taking a walk outside, learning a TikTok dance, completing an online workout class or reading that book you’ve been trying to finish. With the current world we are living in, it’s important to  make a conscious effort to do things that bring us joy and peace, no matter what that may include.

Another activity to take part in is cooking! If you’ve been wanting to work on your kitchen skills, or are just bored of your typical bagel for breakfast, why not learn some new recipes?

There are so many different food blogs online for both cooking and baking with easy, healthy and most importantly, delicious recipes to make at home.
