Healthy Lifestyles: Getting Creative in the Kitchen

IMG_1812.jpg

We’re into the second month of the stay-at-home order. For many, cooking and eating have shifted with the change of season and since the pandemic first began. Last month it was hard to find yeast, pasta and flour. Now we’re seeing limits on chicken, pork and other meats. On The Point, listeners tell us what they’re cooking and eating, and how they’re feeling about it all. Shortages have inspired some to explore new recipes.
