Covid-19 has caused us to question many things, including the way we eat. One of the questions many of us are currently asking ourselves is whether what we eat will impact our ability to survive the respiratory disease should we come into contact with the virus.
While no hard data currently exists about the exact impact nutrition has on our ability to survive the newest threat to our health, common sense dictates that making smart food choices improves our immune system, which in turn, better equips us to survive Covid-19.
Dr. Inci Turkoglu who is a well-respected lecturer at Hacettepe University’s Department of Nutrition stated that, “we recommend normal healthy individuals should include a variety of foods in their diet including milk, meat, vegetables, fruits, and cereals.”
So, this is a great time to wean yourself off fast food and start focusing on preparing delicious and nutritious foods in your own home.
Your Meals are Only as Good as the Products you Use
During the Covid-19 pandemic, you want each meal to be jam-packed with all the nutrients your body needs to keep your immune system operating at peak efficiency. The only way you can be assured that each meal is as nutritious as possible is by making sure you’re cooking with top of the line meats. The best way to get those meats is by purchasing them from Meat the Butchers.
Every single time you place an order with Meat the Butchers, you can rest assured that the meat is fresh, was raised sustainably, and is full of the nutrients your body requires during this worrisome time. Not only will you taste the difference when you prepare the beef, fish, and lamb you get from Meat the Butchers, you’ll also notice that it’s more filling than what you get from the supermarket and that after making it a regular part of your life, you also feel better.
Fresh is Better than Processed/Frozen
Every single day, it grows harder to find good, lean, fresh meat at your local grocery store. What is available sells quickly, leaving only low-grade cuts or heavily processed choices. Eating this low-quality meat is just as bad as not including any meat in your diet. Not only do we refuse to ship you any meat that hasn’t earned top marks from the USDA, but we also make sure it’s as fresh as possible. The result is that you get the full nutritional impact your body requires with each meal. The higher-quality, fresh meat also means you will be satisfied with a smaller portion.
Make Sure you Pair Your Meat the Butchers Order with High-Quality Produce
The great thing about the beef, chicken, and lamb you get from Meat the Butchers is that it packs a fantastic nutritional punch that helps you kick Covid-19 to the curb, but that doesn’t mean you should make it your entire diet while you shelter in place. It’s still important to eat several servings of fresh fruit and vegetables during this stressful time. Make sure you pick out produce that is healthy, has been raised locally, and thoroughly clean it when you get home.
