Food is complicated during COVID-19; food access and equity is a major problem, grocery shopping is stressful on a number of levels, and quarantine cooking is relentless. In Episode 196, Christine and Asha tackle the issue of food shopping and cooking during lockdown. They talk about reframing your thinking about meals, relying on simple basics and strategies to make meals go farther, realistic food inspiration, and getting kids to cook. They also talk a lot about BEANS.
