Whether we’re going back to the office or the classroom or just moving around the world again, for the first time in a long while, we’ve got meal prep on our minds. And it’s making us sweat. We’re supposed to think about what we’re going to eat...in advance?! To take some of the heat off, senior food editor Christina Chaey and frequent Bon Appétit contributor Hetty McKinnon are here to convince us that cooking ahead doesn’t have to be a chore or a bore...as long as you have the right recipes. . Later on, senior commerce editor MacKenzie Chung Fegan stops by to share a few of her favorite items for eating on the go. Listen in for our takes on meal prep vs. meal planning, being a two-freezer household, and how to turn your salad into...a soup???
