And I should add that all meal plans and food in our app have been expertly created by The Healthy Mummy nutrition team and are busy and budget mum friendly
I aim for about 1200- 1400 calories a day (based on my BMR) and with my dinner I often have a glass of wine or if I don’t have a glass of wine I have some chocolate after dinner.
The good news is that there are HEAPS of recipe choices in The Healthy Mummy app and on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges – there are over 5,000 recipes and a huge range of breakfasts, snacks, lunches and dinners to enjoy – plus I am a BIG Healthy Mummy Smoothie fan (for convenience, nutrition and taste) so I factor these in too.
All the recipes are high in protein, which is a super important macronutrient for general health and nutrition and can also help you if you are trying to lose weight.
So below I have shown a few examples of recipes I have for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I should also add that I have a Control X before I eat as I have found this to be INCREDIBLE in stop me overeating.
