Jenny Rosenstrach of Dinner: A Love Story: When we prioritize dinner, I find that a lot of other things fall into place: We work more efficiently to get out of the office on time, we spend less money because cooking homemade food is cheaper than takeout, and, of course, we are eating well, which, in my mind, usually translates to living well. Read the rest of the interview here.
