What to Eat During a Pandemic!

Into week two of social distancing. I am having lots of fun in the kitchen while I’ve been working from home.

I decided to make a youtube video about low-ingredient meals with ingredients that you probably already have in the house.

Check it out below:


2-ingredient pancakes

Makes 4 pancakes


  • 1/2 cup PC Blue Menu buttermilk protein pancake mix

  • 100mL water

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

  • Maple syrup

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries


  1. Mix the pancake mix and water together

  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat.

  3. Pour pancake batter into the pan to make 4 pancakes that are ~3” in diameter.

  4. Add blueberries on top.

  5. Flip pancakes once the underside is brown.

  6. Once brown on the other side, serve with maple syrup and strawberries.

Eggy Avocado


  • 2 slices of whole grain toast

  • 1 fried egg

  • Sliced cheese

  • 1/2 a ripe avocado

  • Handful of greens

  1. Lay sliced cheese on top of one slice of toast.

  2. Place egg on top of cheese.

  3. Spread avocado onto the second slice of toast.

  4. Add greens on top of the egg.

  5. Add sriracha (optional).

  6. Place second slice of toast, with avocado, on top of greens to form a sandwich.

  7. Enjoy!
