In that case, we have 5 quick and nourishing meals for you to make on a sick day, so you can get in all the comfort and nutrients that you need while still using up food that’s in your own cupboard.

We take a look at how buffets are adapting to Covid in order to stay afloat, and what changes have been made in order to keep a sense of the traditional buffet.

In this article, we take a look at what restaurants are doing to prepare for the winter season, and how they will enable physical distancing as outdoor dining declines.
