I live in Texas now, but moved here from Seattle. These delicious Southwest Salmon tacos are a beautiful blend of both Northwest and Southwest cuisines, and have become a family favorite!

The addition of sweet peppers and onion takes their flavor profile over the top.

A dollop of sour cream and some fresh avocado are the perfect toppings.

Trying to get on a healthier track??

My ‘Cleaneo for Fat Loss’ program gives you step-by-step guidance to go from locking yourself in the bathroom and stress eating a half gallon of ice cream to checking yourself out in the window’s reflection as you go by and thinking ‘Oh YEAH, mama!’

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
