This mum has made a HEAP of snacks and meals from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge to take on her holidays with her! How incredible is that?! Libby Butler is driving interstate for a week and wanted to be on top of her healthy eating plan.
“Driving interstate for a week, and I needed to have plenty of snacks and ready-made meals on hand,” says Libby.
“This helps save money, help keep me on track and avoid the ‘I’m hungry’ whinges coming from the other passengers in the car.”
In the lead up to her trip, Libby meal prepped snacks and utilised all the fresh food in the house. She says, “Thankfully, my dad loaned us his travel fridge / freezer so I can freeze and take our snacks and some meals.”
What Libby made:
1. Weetbix Balls
At 154 calories each, these Weetbix Balls are the perfect chocolate guilt free snack.
2. Cookie Dough Bliss Balls
A rich, indulgent treat, sweetened with all natural ingredients. Maple syrup has been used in this recipe as it has a mid-range GI level and is high in antioxidants.

Libby’s remarkable 16kg weight loss success story
Despite suffering from PCOS most of her life, Libby credits the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges for helping her lose 16 kilograms and improving her overall sense of well-being.
“Realising just how big I’d got was a shock. I was also depressed, unhappy, moody, tired, unmotivated, and my PCOS symptoms were getting worse and really getting me down,” she says.
“Nothing I had tried previously worked for me. The Healthy Mummy popped up in my Facebook newsfeed because a friend of mine had liked it, so I checked out the website and decided to take up the special offer they had available on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
“Being able to customise the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Meal Plan has meant that I can change the program to suit me, my family, our preferences, our budget and my health needs.”
Libby says she wants to teach her children about healthy food and balance, so they understand why good food is so important.
“As a child, I had quite poor food habits – no fault of my parents. I had no idea about portion control – I used to buy things from the school tuck shop, and swap my healthy food in the schoolyard,” she adds.
“Now I plan, I prep, I bake and I make things for my family I never thought I would! I always ensure there are healthy options available for myself and my family, and we no longer buy takeaway or convenience foods.
“The Healthy Mummy is deeply ingrained in my life now, and changed it for the better!”
