Have you changed the way you buy/prepare/cook/eat food? Do you think your diet has improved or deteriorated?

I definitely eat at home and cook more from scratch.

I think it has stayed much the same, however, I was on Jobkeeper for four months last year and was able to cook more which was great. I try to eat a bit more locally too.

I have eaten a lot more locally sourced foods & more fresh veg & fruit.

I'd say my diet has improved as I have the time to cook more since working from home

I think my diet has improved! I get bored so I've been cooking much more, and even when I get takeaway I tend to try and get a proper meal in order to support a local restaurant instead of just grabbing something small from a chain outlet.

Have taken advantage of take away meals to support local businesses.

My diet is still similar. I have just had to adjust to the use of different ingredients in recipes due to unavailability or cost of some ingredients.

I have been eating more fast food. Sometimes I eat even if I am not hungry, it is the way to deal with stress.

Yes, I have made a point to buy as much locally grown produce as possible.

I'm more conscious of buying healthy food and learning to modify recipes when things weren't available.
Also using Deliveroo a lot more. I'm still not game to go to packed restaurants as yet.

I defiantly take advantage of delivery services more such as Door Dash and Uber Eats rather than walk the shops near the office.

No Change, Life continues as usual is you know the Australian constitution

I think my diet has sort of become more convenient. I also eat out wayyy more and cook less. However, I have found peace with food during covid which has been beneficial.
