Let’s face it no matter what time you get up, as busy mums breakfast time mid week always seems such a rushed affair.

In between getting the kids organised for school, lunch boxes ready, bags packed and ensuring they are all fed, skipping a decent breakfast is all too familiar option.

But skipping breakfast can set you up to fail later in the day and will sabotage your weight loss. That’s because you are literally running on empty, so it won’t be long until you are famished and start reaching for a muffin or pastry to quickly fill the gap. Then the sugar rollercoaster sets sail and you find yourself wanting more and more.

Take the pressure out of the morning rush by getting your breakfast prepped the night before!

These recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge will ensure you wake up to a healthy filling breakfast that will set you up for the day ahead. Their perfect for prepping, delicious and ideal if you are watching your weight.

Healthy Mummy Smoothie Freezer Packs

We still think that the best breakfast option is a Healthy Mummy Smoothie, but if you want to save even more time on these, try this.

Grab some zip lock bags (one for each breakfast) and add in your Healthy Mummy Smoothie powder and other non-liquid ingredients and then store in the freezer.

Then when you wake up, dump the contents into your blender, add the liquid ingredient (eg milk, coconut water), and blend.

Why not make different smoothies in each bag so that you can mix and match the flavour combinations?

Cicily says “I started the year at 110kgs and got to 75kg!! The lifetime goal I’ve dreamed of my whole life! “

Zoe Terry – 41.7Kgs Lost

Zoe shares, “July 2019 – March 2020 – 41.1kgs gone and definitely not missed! I never thought I could do it. I never thought I would enjoy it. But Healthy Mummy has made it easy and fun!

I have found that 2 smoothies, 3 snacks and a healthy main meal paired with daily exercise is what’s worked for me!”

Melissa Timmer – 37kgs Lost

The Healthy Mummy which has helped her take back control and within 18 months, she had lost a whopping 37 kg and has been maintaining her weight for three years.

Even though Melissa’s weight fluctuates up and down a little she says “I couldn’t care less because this journey is about being happy and if you feel happy in your skin, no matter how much you weigh or what size you are, that’s all that matters. “We are all different and beautiful so don’t be stuck on what scales say all the time.”

Tarryn Eames – 30Kg Lost

Tarryn says:-

  • From 97KGS to 67KGS
  • From a size 18/20 to a size 10/12
  • From lethargic to energetic
  • From miserable to genuinely happy
  • From hating my body to appreciating it.

“At the beginning of my journey,  all I wanted was to lose weight. I never aimed to gain anything. However, all I’ve gained means more to me than the kilos that are now gone and the cms that have disappeared too. Somewhere along the way, I gained the energy to be able to play with my children and the confidence needed to do that in a public setting.

I gained many beautiful and like-minded friends. I gained confidence. I gained strength both physically and mentally. I gained self-love. I gained knowledge about nutrition and exercise. But most importantly I gained happiness.”
