Want to know our NUMBER ONE tip for staying on track with your healthy eating week to week? It’s all about meal prep. Without preparation, it’s all too easy to slip up and choose less than ideal foods.

Meal Prep

Spending time during the week doing some big batch cooking and getting ahead with your meal prep can literally save you hours later on. Find all the meal prep inspiration you need in our Facebook support group!

See our top tips:

1. Make your meal plan

The first thing to do is to sit down and work out your meal plan for the week. This is simple if you are following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge as you can just do it all online and print your shopping list.

2. Chop, chop, chop

meal prep tips

When you get home with all of your fresh produce, don’t just pack it away. Pre-chop your fruit and veg and store them in containers in the fridge, to use in stir fries, casseroles and Healthy Mummy Smoothies.

3. Make a few meals

Instead of making a big mess in the kitchen every night, why not make one big mess on the one day and pre-cook a few meals for the week? We love this Bolognese recipe.

4. Cook some healthy protein 

If you enjoy using shredded chicken or pulled beef in your salads or sandwiches for lunch, add this to your cook up too.

5. Prepare your snacks for the week

Having your healthy snacks ready to go in the fridge or freezer means you don’t even have to think twice about what you are going to have for morning or afternoon tea. Think muffins, healthy dip, bliss balls, or yoghurt and berries.

6. Prep and freeze grains

Brown rice or quinoa can be made in advance. Simply make a double or triple batch, then portion it up into single serve or family size portions.

Once cooled, freeze. Then when you want to use it just defrost in the microwave and then reheat until steaming.

7. Get breakfast started

Try getting ahead with some pre-made breakfast recipes like Chia Pudding or Overnight Oats.

By implementing some of these time-saving tips you will be well on your way to enjoying a less stressful mealtime.
