Here at The Healthy Mummy we are all about nutrition, saving money and simplicity of cooking, as we know what it’s like to be a busy mum!

Planning meals around seasonal fruits and vegetables is a great way to save money, get maximum nutrition and even help the environment as most produce tends to be sourced locally.

Whats more, we are spoilt in the Australian with an abundance of wonderful fresh spring produce for pasta sauces, salads and sweet treats.

Whether you buy your fruit and veg from the supermarket, a local famers market or from the corner shop, buying ‘in season’ are cheaper, tastier and more nutritious.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think losing such a large amount of weight, while feeding my bub and exercising, would be possible. I believe I owe it all to The Healthy Mummy.

“It is a hard habit to break but I’m so glad I have done it, and not focusing on the pesky number on the scales feels so liberating.”
