How to Feed a Large Family Healthy Meals With What's Already In Your Pantry

If you've ever struggled to feed a large family, you're going to want to tune into this interview with my business friend, Apolonia Cross from Plan Her Way to Fit to sharing the hacks that she's using to feed her family on 8 (with #9 on the way!)

The reason that I joined forces with Apolonia is that as a family of one (and a half if you count my dog Penny), I know all too well that not all of the tips I share are going to be applicable to large families. 

I knew that I had to get Apolonia to share exactly how she is doing this with a large family when she’s pregnant while running an online business, during a pandemic. In this special episode of A Spoonful of Soul, we break down exactly how to feed a large family healthy meals with what's already in your pantry. Click through to watch!
