The Key to Grocery Shopping Less During Coronavirus
Planning meals for four adults when one is immunocompromised and there is a pandemic going on can be quite the challenge. Learn how Lauren Davis grocery shops only once every 3 to 4 weeks and how she manages her mindset!
In today’s podcast episode, we’re checking in with another one of our all-star community members, Lauren Davis. Lauren lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and is the mom to 4 year old Gavin. Her husband is immunocompromised, so she has been extra diligent about staying away from the grocery stores and this definitely requires some next level planning.
In addition to the adjustments required for the pandemic, her family has also moved in with her parents, which is introducing another element into her planning process. However, using a sophisticated Post-It Note system, not only has Lauren been able to get it done in the kitchen, but seems to be thriving during this time!
In our chat, Lauren shares:
- How she gets 4 different adults to agree on what they’re eating
- How she meal plans so that she only needs to grocery shop once every 3 to 4 weeks
- How she’s managing her mental mindset during this time
Also, during our rapid fire round, Lauren shares a kitchen tool that I’ve never heard of. This spoon has a flat edge, and it’s her favorite kitchen tool. She’s never been able to find another one, so we’re on a hunt to help her find a backup in case this one breaks. Have you seen something like this? We need the help of our entire podcast community in this treasure hunt!
