When it comes to meal prep Kaitie says, “I always aim for budget effective as well time efficient.

“The shopping came to $120, and the plan was to make 60 meals using those ingredients,” she says. 

“After that we headed back to my house where the magic began.”

60 healthy meals for $120 – that’s just $2 per serving!

Kaitie, who has lost 21kg following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, says meal prep was a massive factor in helping her get into shape.


“With plans to spend $120 on 60 healthy family friendly meals, I went to the drawing board.

“Searching through the hundreds of recipes on The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge hub, I opted for some old time favourites,” she spills.
