TOTUM Tips: The Best Ways To Change Up Your Lockdown Meals | TOTUM
Ben HaywardMay 3rd

If you’re anything like me you may have realised that your diet has essentially become a rotation of about five meals since we went into lockdown.

Pasta and pesto, chilli, stir fry - it’s easy to fall into familiar cooking habits when you’re trying to keep your food shopping to the essentials, get the most out of what you’re buying and maintain some sort of a grasp on the old purse strings while you’re at it!


But it turns out there are a few ways you can get a bit of inspiration to make mealtimes a bit more exciting again!

From savings at supermarkets to food prep delivered straight to your door, great deals on takeaways, and a new bit of kit to add some flair to your cooking, TOTUM have teamed up with some great brands to help you recapture your culinary mojo…
