Meal planning can feel relentless, especially when you’re dealing with multiple dietary preferences or needs. In theory, planning ahead makes sense, but when the rubber hits the road of real life, well, it’s cereal for dinner. In Episode 160 of the Edit Your Life podcast, Christine interviews Jane Maynard, veteran food blogger and creator of This Week for Dinner (the blog and the podcast). Christine and Jane talk about the nitty gritty of meal planning, a tool to make meal planning and grocery shopping easier, dealing with different nutritional needs, the benefits of getting kids in the kitchen, and Jane’s must-have cookbook recommendations.
