Life is busy these days. Work takes longer; school is more demanding.

It’s almost impossible to find the time in the day to figure out a meal, plan it out, make it, and eat it, all at the same time. You may not want to throw together a sandwich or eat noodles and meatballs that you pulled from the freezer every single night. At the same time, you probably don’t have time to throw a steak on the grill or slow roast pork chops every night. It’s enough to make someone want to get takeout all the time. 


Instead of all that stress, check out our list of easy and healthy recipes that can take the guesswork out of your day. With a few pantry staples on hand and some groceries that the team here at JOW will arrange, you’ll find dinner ideas you’ll return to again and again. Your family and tastebuds will thank you after trying some of these delicious, easy dinner recipes.


Huevos Rotos With Mushrooms

What’s easier, healthier, and more filling than a hearty breakfast? We have no idea because we are proud of our Huevos Rotos with Mushrooms, and we think you’ll love it even more. This hearty meal incorporates eggs, potatoes, onion, and mushrooms for a savory twist on breakfast that you won’t soon forget. 


While this may sound like breakfast, you can turn it into more of a dinner idea by adding shrimp or a bit of ground beef. Feel free to top with some parmesan cheese and herbs for some extra oomph. 


Libanese-Style Turkey Stir Fry

Fresh mint, lemon, and paprika combine for a light, bright flavor profile that you won’t soon forget. With a bed of cooked rice beneath this dish, you can be certain that your whole family is getting a nutritious meal. 

Cod With Carrot Puree

This fancy-looking, healthy plate of deliciousness is the perfect, easy meal that can feed the entire family with ease. Accented by juicy tomatoes, our Cod With Carrot Puree will please everyone who takes a bite.


Quiche Lorraine

Quiches are a fantastic option for feeding a large family, even though they’re still fairly easy to put together. That’s why our Quiche Lorraine is a wonderful suggestion for anyone looking to cook easy and healthy recipes for their busy family. Which, we assume, is why you’re reading this!


This easy dinner idea takes a bit longer to cook than some of the others on this list, but that’s mostly just baking time. You can pop it in the oven and forget about it. 


Gnocchi Bake With Broccoli

This pasta bake is a sneaky way to get your kids to eat their veggies. Parmesan cheese, garlic, and gnocchi hide broccoli florets and spinach under a layer of deliciousness in this less than thirty-minute meal. 

Marinated Salmon Salad

This simple salad combines fresh salmon, soy sauce, and maple syrup for a sweet and savory combination that’s truly unforgettable. Even though the salmon only marinates for a short time in the bowl with the sauces, the flavor that it is able to soak up carries the entire dish. 


Garden Vegetables

Greens are good for you, but you have to put in the effort to make them taste just as great. That’s where our Garden Vegetables differ. The addition of bacon and veggie broth to classics like potatoes, green beans, and green peas will change the mind of even the pickiest eaters. 


Beetroot and Pistachio Salad

This Beetroot and Pistachio Salad requires only four minutes of preparation and 20 minutes of cooking time, allowing you to enjoy this excellent meal in no time at all. 


If you find that you’re missing the protein, add crispy chicken thighs on top for a beautiful contrast in texture and a side of spinach or broccoli and cauliflower for some freshness. 


Dinner for Your Busy Family

We hope these recipes have been helpful for your meal planning, making it easier and less stressful to feed your family with easy and healthy meals. It’s no fun worrying about this stuff, and we get that.
