Maryland Woman Loses 15 Pounds During Quarantine Cooking All Meals at Home Using This Service

For the past three months, the coronavirus pandemic has changed life as we knew it. Arguably, one of the places changed most by the virus has been our kitchens. With grocery stores facing supply chain shortages and the majority of restaurants closed or only offering carryout options, we’ve been forced to fend for ourselves and make most of our meals at home. It hasn’t been easy for anyone, but imagine cooking virtually every meal—breakfast, lunch, and dinner—for these past few months without having a dishwasher.

Americans were quick to stock up on packaged foods during the first wave of the coronavirus, and some major producers felt a ripple effect in the supply chain due to the heightened demand.

Food Network is perennially popular among foodies and with good reason. It features skilled and charismatic chefs preparing stunningly beautiful dishes that you can almost smell through the screen.

Add in food competitions like the long-time hit Chopped and the recent Supermarket Stakeout and is it any wonder viewers are over the moon in love with this food-centric network?

However, there’s a discussion going on at the Reddit Food Network board and it seems some viewers aren’t as happy as they once were with the network’s offerings. Where are the healthier eating options, they wonder? Mountains of butter and cheese, gallons of cream, every kind of meat you can imagine… Where they ask, are the vegetables?

Best Smokers 2020 | BBQ Smoker Reviews

There are more choices than ever when it comes to smokers. What type of fuel? What configuration? The options might seem overwhelming, but we’ll explain how they work, help narrow down the choices, and get you pointed in the right direction.

“If you’re going to smoke, an offset—the traditional Texas-style smoker—makes the best food,” says Jess Pryles, live-fire cooking expert and author of the book Hardcore Carnivore. “Offset is the purest way.
