Share this article

Not only does it taste great in SO many dishes, but mince meat isn’t too expensive to buy either!

In fact, this mum recently bought 3kg of mince on special- and made 159 meaty-meal-serves from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge using it AND in one go.

“There was plenty I knew I could do with it,” says Sophie Barratt. “I was able to make a heap of healthy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipes.”


EPIC MEAL PREP: Mum makes 159 meals using 3kg of mince!

“When I see a great bargain at the supermarket, I look in the recipe hub to see what I can make – there are so many great family friendly meals that everyone in the household will love,” says Sophie.

“I actually used everything I had at home already that are staples in my kitchen. The only thing I had to buy was the mince ($25.50) and some puff pastry ($5). Everything else I had at home in the fridge, pantry or freezer already.”

And with a plethora of recipes on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe hub featuring mince beef, she was spoiled for choice!

What Sophie made

144 x Healthy Hidden Veggie Sausage Rolls


Look at all those sausage rolls! It almost looks as if Sophie opened her own BAKERY SHOP!

Sausage rolls are a hit with both kids and adults and can be enjoyed all year round – and these contain ‘hidden veggies’, so they’re a great way to get little ones to eat their vegetables without them even knowing! These are 70 calories per roll.

Sophie’s top 3 meal prep tips

  1. Make things with similar ingredients.
  2. Use what you have available at home already.
  3. Bulk the mince out with lots of hidden veggies! Kids don’t know its in there, and makes the meals more budget friendly… WIN WIN.
