Getting healthy dinners on the table takes energy and time, two things often in short supply. What do you do when you find yourself rooting around the kitchen at 6pm with slim pickings in the fridge and zero cooking inspiration? In Episode 155 of the Edit Your Life podcast, Asha and Christine share their favorite easy pantry dinners — meals that come together using ingredients from the pantry and freezer. They share ideas for simple, nourishing meals you can throw together at the end of a busy day without having to make an emergency run to the grocery store.
