    -Whether or not it’s possible to emotionally prepare for death
    -Why it’s so taboo to talk about death in the United States

    10 Foods You Didn’t Know You Could Freeze

    10 Foods You Didn’t Know You Could Freeze

    Coronavirus has complicated food shopping, and you may find that items are sold out, foods are overpriced, or that you have to spend a ridiculous amount of time on checkout lines. There are also the aggressive shoppers that want to race you for the last carton of eggs (if this sounds really specific, it’s because it legit happened to me yesterday). Usually we make a supermarket run every week to grab essentials, but needless to say, we’ve been trying to limit those runs because the experience has become so unpleasant. Also, social distancing is a real thing.
    Freezing is an excellent way to preserve foods, and can be especially useful during these chaotic food shopping times. Tune in to today’s episode to learn:
    -Our tried and true top foods for freezing that you may not have thought to freeze
    -How to package these foods properly 
    -Creative ways to use these foods when ready to cook
    -Plus how we’re holding up with everything that’s been going on
