Around 5:00 p.m. ET on Twitter, the tweets begin to appear:
“Any ideas for dinner tonight?”
“I’m not sure what to make that the kids will eat.”
“Guess it’s take out again – pizza or Chinese?”
The fact is that meal planning is one of those not-so-fun things in life that can actually simplify your week significantly by helping you avoid the last minute dinner rush. Join me as we chat with @PlantoEat and @mandiehman, Plan to Eat spokesperson and author of How to Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too, about ways to make finding balance easier so that you have time to take care of the necessities in life and enjoy it, too!
