17 Apr 2020 by Anastasia Pentz

Are you at home now, either working remotely alone, with a roommate, a loved one or perhaps with your spouse and three kids? Whatever your situation is, we’re sure you can relate to the realities of lockdown, where everyday life is a rush and there ain’t no time for cooking at all!

 At KRS we’ve got your back with these scrumptious pocket-friendly, healthy and family friendly meals. From Jamie Oliver and BBC Good Food to some great Vegan choices from Wisconsin USA (Spoiler Alert: Delicious American Easy to Make Quiche), we’ve scouted out some meals to make your day a bit easier and tastier. 

Sit down, relax, have a sip of that coffee you just made and check out these gobsmackingly delicious meals.

 

Pocket Friendly

1. Mexican Bean Wraps

Missing your local Mexican restaurant? This tasty dish by Jamie Oliver brings the experience home. It takes only 40 minutes to cook and is very nutritious: half a cup of beans provides 7g of protein (the same as 28g of meat). Beans also help to lower your LDL cholesterol and cost a lot less.
