We have a bubble with one other couple and She's had symptoms since Sunday. Her bf didn't make any preparations before he started showing symptoms last night (4 days later) and now they're both stuck in bed with no energy to prepare anything that would be good for their health.
My partner started showing symptoms late last night as well so I've made enough food and got enough groceries that we won't have to prepare too much and I feel this was the right thing to do.
Good luck out there ✌️
ETA: I'm getting a lot of responses who are misunderstanding my tip so I'm gonna try to clear this up. I'm suggesting getting groceries delivered to your door so that you don't go out and infect anyone, if you don't have this option please opt for curbside pickup and avoid going in to stores or anywhere you could infect people. And I'm suggesting doing it before you show symptoms because there is a very real possibility that once you start to exhibit symptoms then you will be stuck in bed or too exhausted to do anything.
My friend had ample time to make any kind of preparations like food delivery or meal prep and he chose to do nothing and now wishes he also had done something, so I'm providing you his cautionary tale so that you don't find yourselves in this position.
Edit 2: some commenters have added some great ideas for prep: >Preparing some soup and freezing it, or some spaghetti sauce or chilli, order lots of fresh fruit and vegetables that are easy to prepare and eat, get some stuff to help manage symptoms like cough drops perhaps! Frozen food you can put in the oven is quick and simple also. Thank you! U/advice-239400
>The Voila pasta and veggie bags in the frozen veggie section are life savers!! Thanks! U/bleepin_bleep
>For anybody who's curious Walmart has a pretty good deal with "walmart+" which is basically just delivery for food and such at like 10 bucks a month and you can start a free 30 day trial with answering 3-5 questions. Thank you! U/somewhiteguys
>GrubHub and ubereats is always an option too guys if you have the means! Thanks u/supercharged0709
Thank you for everyone's input and suggestions! RIP my inbox there are way too many messages to get through so I'll save it for another day. Happy new year everyone! Happy and healthy wishes to you all, yes even the lot of you who were rude for no reason.
And thanks for the awards!

I'm extremely sensitive to the taste of salt - nothing will happen to me health wise if I do eat a lot, but I absolutely cannot stand it and salted food is inedible to me.
My boyfriend, on the other hand, is a salt fiend. He adds extra salt to everything - which is fine. Everybody has their own taste pallet, I don't care what he does with his own food.
I got up yesterday and decided to do chili in the crock pot. 5pm rolls around, chili is done, we bowl-up for dinner. I'm not very hungry so I just make a tiny bowl with the plan to go back later - I made 10 quarts with the idea of leftovers for at least 2 days. I go back a few hours later, make another small bowl, and shrivel into a raisin upon taking the first bite.
He didn't just salt his bowl, he salted the entire pot. Now, I'm aware that 99% of the population would probably have to season their bowl. I expect people to - when I have someone over to eat I tell them I don't use much salt, and direct them to the shaker so they can do up their own portion how they like it. But I do expect people to have some consideration for others eating and limit it to their OWN plate!
This isn't the first time he's done this, and we've talked about it before - he swears he won't do it again, but it's a 50/50 chance next time we eat he'll salt the main dish before putting it on his plate, instead of just salting what's on his plate. It ruins leftovers for me, which pisses me off because I am the sole buyer of groceries and I usually cook in bulk.
I didn't say anything, I just dumped my bowl. I was pissed, feeling disrespected and uncared for and in the heat of the moment, I dumped the rest of the pot. My thought process was "if I can't eat, neither can he".
He has a habit of getting up at 1am and digging into leftovers, so like clockwork he goes downstairs, digs around in the fridge, then stomps back up to our room and asks "where the fuck" the chili went. I told him I threw it out because it was inedible, and he LOST it about wasting food, said it's not his fault I have no sense of taste, and didn't think I wanted any more. 10 quarts of chili and he thought 9 of it was solely his, apparently.
This is the first time I've actually thrown out basically a whole dish, normally I just bitch at him about it, remind him to stop doing it, and move on. This time I just snapped, I guess. I'm tired of only getting to eat a tiny portion of food that I pay for and cook. It's costing me money because I'm having to make sepa... keep reading on reddit ➡

I know Italian-American food or Mexican-American food is nowhere near as good as the real stuff, but it shouldn’t be scoffed at for being bland or not authentic. When you have so many people from so many different places living together, there are so many different tastes. The only way to find common ground between all of these unique tastes is, well, blander food. It appeals to more people overall and doesn’t really alienate the people who only like the specific tastes from their culture.
