We are trying our best to take things one step at a time and not stress out (heck, my mom has been telling me that the word stress is not allowed in our house for the next few weeks), but it is difficult balancing our work and personal life with everything that has been happening.

Something that we have been focusing on a lot lately are simple meals— those that are healthy and easy to make! We have been cooking these in large batches at the start of the week to meal prep no not only make more time for packing but to also stay on track with our meals because if not, we would definitely gravitate towards takeout and lots of vegan snacks. An easy and filling lemon olive oil pasta that requires just 7 simple ingredients and less than half an hour to make.
