Hi friends, I'm Jillian! The creator of Jillian's Healthful Eats! I'm the one who cooks all the meals, develops all the recipes, takes all the photographs, and washes all the dishes! Welcome to my blog! However you found me, I'm so grateful you did.
I absolutely love cooking and being able to share all of my healthy recipes. I firmly believe that if you include your kids in the cooking process, they are more likely to eat the meal. Being a mother of 3 youngsters, I strongly stand behind cooking my children a healthy meal every day. All my recipes are quick, easy recipes because let's be honest with so many kids there is minimal to zero time left for meals that take a long time to make. Most of my meals take under 30 minutes to make!
I usually have my little sidekicks next to me. That would be my eldest daughter, Taylor, my son, Luke, and the baby of the family, my other daughter, Cameran. We make most of my meals together. I usually find something fun and easy for them to do and I include that in each of my recipes.
My blog focuses on taking a basic meal and tweaking it to use wholesome, clean ingredients!
What you'll find on Jillian's Healthful Eats
I am constantly looking for ways to change dishes into healthier versions. You will find tons of healthy recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, appetizers, and desserts, and most recently my new obsession is air fryer recipes. I love creating new meals for my family to enjoy and hopefully, you will enjoy them too!
The recipes contain detailed step-by-step directions, along with step-by-step photos. Each recipe also has tips on how to include your children in the cooking process.
WHY THE HEALTHY ROUTE?
Throughout my life, I have always been really active. I was always involved in sports growing up and when those days ended I needed another way to stay in shape. My Mother was always an avid gym goer and so I decided to see what the hype was all about. At that time I joined a gym and really got into working out and exercising. I then started thinking of other ways that I could become even more fit and healthy. So, I started focusing on the things I was putting into my body.
Let me just tell you I was not always super healthy growing up. I loved my junk food and let's be honest, sometimes I still do! Well, when my husband and I moved in together I started experimenting with every type of healthy food out there. That has now become my way of life.
Since becoming a Mother, I know that I want to continue being the best role model for my children that I know I can be and teach them that eating healthy and staying fit are important things to know in life!
