(PS – All of my recipes are what I call ‘throw-together’. You won’t see much measuring. This makes them super easy!)

Hey! I’m Julie.

I’m the mother of three, ages 28, 21, and 6, and Gima (grandmom) to a five-year-old grandson.

​Over my 28 years of child-rearing I have been ALL the moms (single, married, stay-at-home, working, young, ‘mature’, struggling, stable, etc) and have faced every healthy eating challenge there is.

​I’m now the founder of Well Fed Families, and I authored a cookbook called ‘Easy, Healthy Meals for the Tired-Ass Mom’ just for moms like YOU!

I bring tons of real-life, family-raising experience to the table to help other overwhelmed mamas get on a healthier track.

Please get comfy and take a look around. I have lots of good stuff for you!

I’m so glad you’re here. <3
