Quick, delicious recipes to bring back family dinners

Over the past 60 years, the average family dinnertime has declined from around 90 minutes to just 12, while rates of obesity and diabetes have skyrocketed. As the family sit-down meal approaches extinction, The Healthy Family Cookbook comes to the rescue with simple ways to put a variety of wholesome, flavorful meals on the table for your family.

From delicious Fish Tacos with Colorful Coleslaw to One Pan Hawaiian Chicken each recipe is organized by time and effort. With minimal steps and ingredients, smarter prep, and less clean-up, The Healthy Family Cookbook will help you spend less time cooking, and more time enjoying your family.

This family cookbook includes:

  • Family friendly―Satisfying meals the whole family will love, and tips for raising adventurous eaters.
  • Time management―This family cookbook includes recipes that are conveniently organized into themes like 15-Minute, One-Pot, and 5-Ingredient, in order to make weeknight meals a breeze.
  • For every diet―Dietary labels like gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian provided for each recipe, along with nutritional information, are all part of this comprehensive family cookbook.

The Healthy Family Cookbook will be your guide to healthy, fast, and easy meals that that appeal to the entire family.





A cookbook for the everyday cook. Filled with healthy comfort food that is flavorable. Printed in a nice size book with good quality paper. Nice colorful pictures of some of the recipes. Chapters broken down into themes (15-minute prep, 30 minutes or less, 4 ingredients, One Pot or Skillet, Slow Cooker). Easy to follow directions. Recipes use basic ingredients/easy to find ingredients. I’ve found quite a few recipes to try.
