Covid-19 Treatment Myth

I’ve been reading online some “treatments” people are suggesting to prevent covid-19, which in reality are myths. I talk about one of the myths I read about recently in my latest video. Hint: Hot water is better used for tea or coffee 😊. Stay safe everyone!

Social Distancing in my back yard…beautiful day!

Easy Mediterranean Inspired Healthy Lunch Plate You Can Make in Under 15 Min!

I LOVE Mediterranean food and try to get some Mediterranean food at least once or twice a month. Unfortunately, during the quarantine period, I can’t go out to eat at my favorite spots. To satisfy my craving and put my home cooking skills to use, I came up with this easy, Mediterranean inspired healthy lunch plate that I wanted to share with all of you!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tortilla or 1 wrap
  • 4 tbsp canned black beans
  • 4 tbsp of canned corn
  • Frozen meatballs
  • Hummus
  • Hot sauce or sriracha (optional)

Warm up the tortilla or wrap in a pan with no oil. You can also put the tortilla or wrap in a microwave for about 10-20 seconds.

On your plate, put 4 tbsp canned black beans, 4 tbsp canned corn.

Cook 3-4 frozen meatballs as directed on the package, and cut them up into smaller pieces.

Put 2 tbsp hummus on the side and drizzle with hot sauce or sriracha (optional).

In under 15 min, you have a healthy, filling lunch that has about 500-600 calories and about 20 g of protein! Enjoy!

One of the BEST ways to avoid Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a major health concern around the world today. One of the BEST ways to avoid Coronavirus is also the BEST way to avoid the flu – handwashing!

Handwashing often, ESPECIALLY before eating or touching your mouth, nose or eyes, is the best way to prevent getting sick from a virus or bacteria. Currently, the CDC recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you are not near a sink, you can also clean your hands with hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, as long as your hands are not visibly dirty.

Check out my videos on handwashing and cleaning your hands with hand sanitizer. The one I filmed in the parking lot was done recently…and I wanted to show off my Philadelphia Eagles lunch bag (go Birds!) haha

The other video was done about 5 years ago on Halloween featuring 2 of my coworkers, Mimi and Julie! Some of the nurses and medical assistants decided we would dress up as Star Trek.

The Halloween Star Trek video was fun because we filmed it unrehearsed and during a brief 5 minute break in between seeing patients, which is why at the end I ran to turn off the camera because we all had patients to see. Not to worry, none of our patients were kept waiting 😉

I hope you enjoy my videos, and I hope all of you stay safe during the #coronavirus quarantine!
