6 Easy Dinners from Only 20 Ingredients

I love saving time. I love saving money. But saving time AND money?! Umm….HECK YES!!

These six easy dinners all come together super fast and are made with a total of 20 healthy ingredients.

So few ingredients, so many dinners!


So grab the list (at the bottom of the page) and head to the store. You’ll be in and out in a flash and dinner for the next six days will be in the bag!

Grilled Chicken with Avocado and Tomato: Sprinkle chicken breasts with Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute (or other sugar-free seasoning mix), grill and top with sliced avocado and tomato. Serve with baked sweet potatoes.

Chicken Fajita Salad: Sauté chicken strips with sliced onion and red and green bell pepper. Serve over mixed greens and top with tomato, black beans, avocado, and salsa.

Flat Iron Steak Plate: Season and grill flat iron steaks to desired doneness. Top with sautéed mushrooms and serve with cubed avocado and grape tomatoes.

Pepperoncini Roast Beef: Place beef roast in the slow cooker, sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. Pour a jar of pepperoncinis over the top (including liquid). Cook for 8-10 hours on low. Serve with a green veggie and mashers (steam cauliflower til soft, then put in food processor or blender with some grass-fed butter, garlic powder, pink salt, and cracked pepper).

Salmon Tacos: Brush salmon with grass-fed butter and bake til done (425 for 10-15 mins). Meanwhile, saute sliced onion and sweet peppers til tender. Pile flaked salmon and sautéed veggies into corn (NOT flour!) tortillas, or butter lettuce leaves. Top with avocado, and salsa.

Veggie Scramble: Sauté diced mushroom, onion, and zucchini til crisp-tender. Break eggs into pan and scramble til almost set. In the last couple of minutes, add two handfuls of baby spinach to the pan and cook until spinach is wilted and eggs are cooked. Serve with diced, roasted sweet potatoes.

Hey! I’m Julie.

I help busy moms feed their families healthy foods in a lot less time.

I’m the founder of Well Fed Families, a mom of three kids who I had over the span of 21 years (I like doing things slowly sometimes), a lover of food, and an 80’s rock fanatic. I also dig jail shows and anything from the 1940s.

As you can tell from the above I’m a little weird. I‘m also a little funny (okay, sometimes a lot funny).

But one thing’s for sure…..I’ve been doing this healthy eating thing for my family for a loooooong time.

And most importantly? Moms who are feeling overwhelmed by that whole concept are my HEART! I want to help you in any way I can, because I know how hard it can be sometimes. 

So take a load off and stay a while. I’m super glad you’re here. <3

Psst…before you leave be sure to grab the free cookbook below! It’s my little way of saying thanks for checking out Well Fed Families….

Does dinner time stress you out?

Hate being tied to the kitchen when you get home, when you just want to RELAX already?!

I feel ya, sister.

That’s why I created a cookbook just for us: the exhausted moms who long for easy weeknights, but still want to feed our family healthy meals.

And I have a sample version with your name on it.
