Cooking can be a time-consuming chore, especially when you’re trying to make something healthy. It takes energy and effort that you’d probably rather spend doing other things. We understand your pain, and we're here to help.

First, we offer tons of easy nutritious websites that will please even the pickiest of eaters, so the stress of creating a meal plan is off your shoulders. Then, we’ll put together a list of exactly what groceries you need for each meal, perfectly optimized for the number of people in your household. You have the option of adding whatever other items you may need, and then we’ll either arrange to have it delivered, or you can pick it up. It’s as customizable as it gets. 


We want to assist you in your search with this list of fast, healthy meals you can make in no time! We’ve compiled some of our favorite breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that manage to be both easy and nutritious without ever sacrificing flavor.


Green Beans With Ricotta

While you might be wondering how ricotta fits into a healthy meal, don’t fret. You can have everything in moderation, and ricotta is a fantastic source of the calcium that’s so necessary for children. Our Green Beans With Ricotta strike the perfect balance between being delicious, easy, and relatively healthy by using one of life’s most healthy veggies: green beans


This meal takes only 13 minutes in total, and the way the creamy ricotta complements the crunch of fresh country bread, finished off with some slight acidity from the lemon, will ensure that this recipe makes its way onto your list of favorite easy recipes. 


Roasted Vegetables and Green Tahini

This health-conscious vegetarian dinner dish takes its beauty from its simplicity. This delightful Roasted Vegetables and Green Tahini meal is a staple of any healthy household looking to fill themselves up for the day. It features carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and potatoes all dressed up with herbed tahini sauce. 

Chopped Summer Salad With Chicken

This wouldn’t be a list of healthy meals without at least one salad making an appearance. But unlike the sad, boring salads that you buy pre-made at the deli or the office cafeteria, this salad is bursting with fresh, summer flavors. 


Juicy tomato, creamy avocado, and perfectly cooked chicken topped with a citrus dressing will make this low-carb option a mainstay on your table during the warm season. 


Roasted Chickpeas With Yogurt and Pita

If you’re looking for a healthy dish with a touch of Middle Eastern flair, this is the dinner for you. Crispy roasted chickpeas are seasoned with tomato sauce, cumin, and just a hint of spice to bring some heat to the kitchen. Cool down your taste buds with creamy Greek yogurt, and tie it all together with a warmed pita. 


If you plan it right, this recipe is great for meal prep as well—you can serve the roasted chickpeas on top of lettuce with a touch of lemon juice stirred into the yogurt to make a dressing. 


Tomato Mozzarella Bacon Quiche

Nothing says healthy like a protein-rich meal, especially one that uses eggs! This Tomato Mozzarella Bacon Quiche recipe is a solid option for anyone trying to make dinner that gives a bang for their buck. The savory combination of salty bacon, gooey mozzarella, and ripe tomatoes will make this recipe a hit. Not to mention that a quiche looks particularly impressive out on the table, even if it didn’t take long to throw together. 


This is one of those meals you put together quickly and set aside while it bakes. By the time it’s done, you’ll have a mouth-watering meal on your hands.


Zucchini Risotto

This rich, creamy Zucchini Risotto is a decadent dish that finds a way to be both fast and healthy at the same time. One bite of this delicious lunchtime meal, and it will blow your mind!


When you’re not in the mood for pasta, this is the perfect switch. Serve with a side of chicken breasts or shrimp if you’re missing the protein. 


Cauliflower Veloute

When it comes to fast and healthy meals, it doesn’t get much better than soup. We all know the classics: tomato, beef and barley, chicken noodle. When it comes time to try something new, we have the perfect Cauliflower Veloute recipe for you.


We’ll select the perfect amount of each ingredient for you, but you can also add other items onto your grocery list. Looking to serve this with a side of salmon for a more complex meal? You can ensure the fish makes it onto your list before we place the order for you. 

Tuna-Stuffed Eggplant

One of the most unique recipes on our list, this Tuna-Stuffed Eggplant dish will surprise you with how much everyone in your household likes it, even picky kids. 


You’ll combine eggplant, canned tuna, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, tomatoes, black olives, and garlic for an unexpectedly delicious flavor profile. 


This fantastic meal can be enjoyed by itself, with a fresh salad, or alongside bell peppers and green beans and dip. 


Pesto Pizza With Zucchini

We love our zucchini here, and some of our best and most healthy recipes take advantage of the delicious vegetable. Banish visions of tossing pizza dough above your head and splattering sauce all over your kitchen, because you don’t have to be a professional chef to make a high-quality pizza with interesting flavors. Our Pesto Pizza With Zucchini is a must-try recipe for you!


As far as ingredients go, this meal requires pizza dough, pesto sauce, zucchini, mozzarella cheese, and spinach.


Roasted Butternut Squash With Lime

It’s veggies, veggies, and more veggies with this recipe. When the weather cools down, there’s nothing better than a meal you can throw in the oven and forget about. Soon enough, the scent of roasting squash will remind you that dinner will soon be ready, and it will be delicious. Our Roasted Butternut Squash With Lime dish is as succulent as it is straightforward. 


If you want a fuller fall weeknight dinner, consider serving with chicken thighs and brown rice.


In No Time Flat

We know it’s difficult to make healthy meals that aren’t overly complicated, and vice versa. Fast food may be convenient, but it’s not exactly nutritious. If you’re on a strict timeline but need to make food that’s good for you, this list will surely help. It's vital to find ways to fit in healthy meals throughout your busy week whenever you can, but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice time with your family in order to make that happen.


JOW’s recipes are always easy, healthy, delicious, and filling as possible, even on those busy weeknights. We try to keep everything around 30 minutes of cooking time, too. Who says good food has to be unhealthy or take hours to make? Not us.
