An Interesting New Find

It’s pretty easy to find negative news right now. It sometimes feels like everywhere you look there’s just so much negativity. And I understand why- it’s important to spread awareness and make sure people understand the seriousness of the situation. However, personally I don’t like spending a lot of time looking at negative stuff because it does tend to effect my mental health sometimes. If you have anxiety or depression you can probably understand where I’m coming from. That’s why I was kind of excited when I found a blog that’s trying to spread some positivity during these difficult times.

The blog is culinaryschools.org and it seems like they’re trying to bring some positivity at a time when it’s pretty negative out there so I thought I would share the blog with you guys. One of the things I loved about their blog was that they created games for kids to show them how difficult culinary-related work is so that they can learn to appreciate those working in this industry when they grow up. I thought this was super cool. I think there are certain things we need to teach children from a young age and this is a fun way to teach them to be grateful for those working in the service sector. It’s a fun way to keep your kids occupied while they are at home that also teaches them to value those around them.

They also realised that most of us are stuck at home right now which may mean that we may not always being super healthy. I’ve definitely relied on running from one class to another as exercise so far and now my body is just like girl what are you doing. That’s why they created a body fat calculator, a weight loss calculator and a workout calculator for those of you who want to workout from home and track how much weight you’ve lost and how many calories your workout is burning.

And as you guys know I’m a big fan of cooking and I’ve been trying to experiment with food since I’ve been stuck at home anyway. I was happy to find that they have an ingredient converter which basically helps you convert the amounts from the metric system of measurement to the imperial system or vice versa. That’s super helpful for me because I only know the metric system and when people are like add 2 pounds of blah blah blah I’m like whatttt?? So I really found this helpful when trying out new recipes.

So yeah, thought I would share that with you guys. Hopefully it was a nice distraction from everything going on right now. Let me know in the comments if you’ve started baking bread because apparently that’s a thing now?!? And let me know if you’ve tried any new dishes!!

  1. Baking my own bread is my ultimate goal but im taking it one step at a time. One thing’s for sure, I’ve finally had the motivation to learn new things to cook. Thanks to online recipes and tutorials.

  2. This is amazing. Having to do the conversions really suck. This is a great post. This lockdown has got me into cooking chicken. Until not, I used to be terrified of cooking and always used to eat out.

    1. Yeah I know but personally I would rather support a fellow blogger who’s trying to spread some positivity in a negative time. It’s much harder for bloggers out there to get an audience and users than it is for apps/app creators. Just a personal opinion and choice of course.

  3. Oh yes I agree….I’m quite good at having a negative little rant myself but it’s certainly better for my mental wellbeing to focus on constructive things instead! Thanks for sharing the website, my kids will benefit for sure.

  4. I think we all needed this time ..Just for ourselves, of course those who got infected and died may rest peacefully, and those who live can have finally time for things what they wanted to do. This is the time where ideas and creativity takes the turn and youre very right that in times likes this, positivity is needed. Thanks! 🙂

    1. Yeah I think one of the few positive things about this situation is that we get to pursue some things we have been putting off. Thanks for the comment!
