Meet Judy, your guide to eating clean for a healthy lifestyle and monthly cooking.
If you try to avoid processed foods and love serving your family nourishing meals, we are passionate about the same things.
Whether you’ve enjoyed a healthy diet for a while or you’re just getting started, you’ll find delicious recipes to fit your focus.
While we cater to a clean eating lifestyle rather than a specific diet, we also include recipes for specialty diets like Keto, Paleo, gluten-free, and low-carb.
Ditching junk food for real food takes effort and we’re here to help with clean eating recipes and tips to make it easier.

Our Recipe Index makes it easy to find your way around the site with lots of categories to browse and a handy search.
I know, the term “healthy” gets tossed about with loose interpretations, one diet cures while another one slims. We focus on a balanced, clean eating lifestyle we can sustain over fad diets, so we emphasize whole food cooking.
Our quest for nutritional health began by eliminating refined sugar, oils, white flour, and processed foods. We struggled through the resistance to change from the kids and battled our own poor habits to develop meals that weren’t just better for us, but tasted great too!
Seeing your kids grow to embrace healthy food choices into adulthood is truly the best reward for the effort.
A big part of this healthier lifestyle was/is the commitment to preparing our own meals.
Designating a cooking day each month to prep food enabled us to consistently gather our family around delicious meals for more than 20 years.
Because we’re kind of picky, we made it happen without “dump meals” or lining the freezer with casseroles. With particular palates, there was always someone who didn’t like something—all their food touching, or sauces, or big chunks of onions, or food they couldn’t recognize, or …. whatever.
And I didn’t do it alone. I’ve cooked with a good friend in a cooking partnership spanning the entire time. A LOT of food passed through our hands and into our freezers (like more than 5,000 meals!).
We know what foods freeze well and what doesn’t, understanding it is more important to have the menu and the plan than have every part of the meal cooked and frozen.
There are casseroles sprinkled in here and there with soups and stews every cook learns to make in big batches, but most of the recipes are everyday favorites with single meats and separate side dishes.
Our Monthly Cooking Video Course launches in January!
