In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to Kiran Dodeja Smith of Easy Real Food about managing life at home during quarantine. With the world on lockdown, we’re spending more time at home than ever and that comes with its own set of challenges. Kiran shares ways to create a schedule, split up house duties, and find creative ways to spend time together as a family.
Kiran is the mom to four kids under the age of 13, an influencer marketing manager and holistic health coach. Her site, EasyRealFood.com focuses in on real ingredients and helps families ensure they are eating whole nutritious meals. With a busy household herself, she wants to help others not feel the stress that so many often do when it comes to meal planning and eating healthfully.
