Amidst the outbreak of the novel coronavirus Quarantine food, the poor and the middle-class people are stuck with Quarantine food. Most of the people in this section don’t have a maid for household aid. As public transport has been shut for quite long, you can only rely on local stores.

Smear one spoon serving of peanut butter(preferably non-sugar and fat removed) which is rich in proteins. Cut a banana in nice small circular pieces and stuff it inside the bread and sandwich it.

Take some peeled and over-night soaked almonds and blend it in a blender for a minute or two. Add one spoon of cocoa powder or dark chocolate.
