I’ve been beneath voluntary quarantine since March 12th. It has been a busy time of preparation, schooling, work – and checking in with buddies & household throughout my free time.
I plan to go reside in an interactive video dialogue about my choice and to share my thoughts on all the things later this week, hopefully before later. I’ll let you recognize as soon as I have it scheduled. I would love so that you can join in!
Right now although, I merely need to ask:
How Can I Help?
There is a lot complicated and contradicting info right now that it has individuals feeling unsure and uneasy. Rightfully so.
And SO much info period, that it’s utterly overwhelming.
I’ll hold this word brief, however I would love to hear your ideas and questions – and what’s happening in your life. And then I’ll share extra with you about what’s happening in mine…
Including the low carb groceries I chose, given I’m house and cooking (for awhile, I think about), what & how I’m cooking (considering ahead!), and my straightforward recipes in fact – I love easy. 🙂
Don’t panic, however DO prepare.
You’ve in all probability observed your native grocery stores are struggling to keep up with the present demand. Here’s a great learn on the Coronavirus Food Shortages and what you must know concerning the provide chain.
It’s superb to order your groceries online or from your local shops if in any respect potential. I was capable of order supply from an area grocery store myself, and have them depart the groceries on my front porch.
Like I stated, I’ll share my own grocery listing with you in another publish, together with what I’m making in case you want EASY meal ideas right now.
There are shortages in all places, even on-line, and a number of the speak about potential Amazon supply disruptions is sweet cause to order what they DO have in stock now, whereas they still have it in stock.
I additionally found some of my staples are WAY cheaper there! More on that in a second…
Again, how can I assist?
I have a number of concepts, but I would additionally love to hear yours. First, I’m planning to host a collection of video chats so we will all come together as a group and keep related.
I work intently with numerous low carb and keto corporations so I can negotiate offers and discounts for you, and host a collection of giveaways as nicely.
I thought that is perhaps helpful as one concept…
And the giveaways can be FUN! 🙂
Right now I know that Perfect Keto is providing 20% off Everthing sitewide via Wednesday March 18th (finish of day). I stocked up on unflavored collagen powder and keto collagen bars.
Their mct oil is again in inventory too, and it’s one of many highest quality AND lowest worth, based mostly on my comparison of over 50 brands.
I love their newer flavored nut butters however already have some available, so I’ll be baking with those while I’m house. Snickerdoodle pancakes and cookies (low carb in fact) sound SO good proper now! 🙂
I simply came upon that Lolli’s Keto Cookie Clusters is on sale right now too: Buy 2 Bags Get 1 Free utilizing code FREEBAG in the discount field at checkout. Just add three luggage to your cart and use that code to say one free.
Lolli’s keeps very properly within the fridge and may also be frozen. It lasts 2 weeks in the pantry, 3 months in the refrigerator and 6 months in the freezer.
Fortunately numerous our keto pantry staples and favorites are nonetheless absolutely stocked and delivering, and lots of of them are operating sales (or I can negotiate sales & discounts for you, like I stated).
My low cost code is LOWCARBTRAVELER at most keto stores online, apart from one – my discount code is TRAVELINGLOWCARB at ChocZero.
I’ll hold an eye fixed out and hold you posted on any sales I find.
Here is a quick listing of what else I’ve discovered to date, and I will proceed to look out the perfect choices and obtainable sources:
Some restaurants are closing, and others are only closing their eating rooms – or seating at half capability. It can be ideally suited to order delivery or take-out and restrict contact in fact.
Popular food supply providers like GrubHub, Uber Eats, DoorDash and so forth are offering “no contact delivery” proper now. Which means you’ll be able to have your order left on the door or at a designed location with out having to sign for it and so on.
As a response to the state of affairs, a number of restaurants at the moment are delivering meals.
So far I know that Red Lobster, O’Charley’s, Logan’s Roadhouse and Denny’s restaurants are offering FREE delivery in the meanwhile.
I don’t have any of these eating places in my space, but you’ll be able to go to Google and search: “restaurant delivery near me” to seek out extra options.
* Please depart a comment and “share the news” on any restaurant or grocery delivery options YOU find out about in certain areas, so we name have a source of options.
Amazon Deals – With a “BUT”
Amazon can also be struggling to keep up with the demand, and there are another potential considerations with that going forward.
However, you’ll be able to still order and anticipate quick delivery of things they already (or STILL) have at their warehouses – till those run out.
I posted this on Facebook earlier immediately for instance:
I comprehend it’s not 🧻🧻🧻 but all of my native shops are OUT of my favorite Coffee-Mate sugar free powdered hazelnut creamer PLUS it’s WAY cheaper on Amazon! 😲 I should have been buying it there all alongside… geez.
I simply paid $4.29 for it at Kroger and often pay $4.59 or $4.79 for it at different native stores. On Amazon, in a pack of 6, it’s only $3.27. I just saved over $6.
Amazon has my favorite espresso cheaper too, WAY cheaper than I’ve been paying regionally.
I love Gevalia Coffee Colombian Roast and pay $7.99-$8.99 a bag for it at my stores right here. On Amazon, it’s only $4.99 🤦♀️ 🤦♀️🤦♀️ WOW!
And I don’t even need to go out.
Well, not that I can now anyway. 😜
Both are Amazon Prime too, free quick delivery, right to my entrance door by Friday. ✅
– once more, that’s subject to what they still have in inventory, however Amazon continues to be a very good supply for supply in the meanwhile (as in: TODAY).
I was capable of order canine food and Slim’s supplements from Amazon and get those delivered too. Along with my lotion, which is HALF the worth on Amazon as it’s in my local shops. I use Hempz and it’s 19.99 regionally, and underneath $10 on Amazon with subscribe & save. I’ve been ordering it there for a few years now.
Back to my query…
How can I help?
I assume more than something all of us want a sense of group and connection, so I like the thought of internet hosting video chats on enjoyable informal subjects – to take our minds off the bigger points, and have some social time. That’s one factor I can do.
But speak to me. How are you?
How are things going the place you’re, and in your life?
We’re all in this collectively. 💕
