Mum of three, Charlotte O’Callaghan, has lost weight with the Healthy Mummy after each of her pregnancies. Following the birth of her first daughter in 2012, Charlotte lost 18 kilograms in 12 months. She went from 83 kilograms to 65.
After baby number two in 2014, she started again with the Healthy Mummy Smoothies, followed the Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Diet and Exercise Plan Book. She lost 13 kilograms in 8 months.
Baby number three arrived in August last year. Charlotte is now a 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member and is on a mission to lose 10 kilograms.
Charlotte knows that the best way to help stay on track with healthy eating is to meal prep as much as possible. That way, there is always a tasty meal or snack on hand when hunger strikes.
That’s the number one tip that you’ll learn as a member of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Charlotte said that not including the things she already had in the house from previous shopping and meal plans, she spent about $50 at Aldi on the ingredients.
Fifteen recipes, 125 snacks and just four hours
In just 4 hours (spread across a few days, because…children) Charlotte prepared 15 different meals and snacks. Essentially, that equals to 125+ snacks and meal servings. That’s nearly a month’s worth of food.
“I’m not going to lie and make out like this was done in 2 hours with my perfect children behaving perfectly while my perfect house was in perfect order, while I pottered around in my pinafore apron with my hair in rollers and my make up perfectly presentable.
“My children, aged 5, 3 and 10 months, are chaotic. Do not come over to my house because you will get lost in all the folding I have to do. Who even has time for make up?”
We hear you Charlotte!
Charlotte cooked up a storm using some of our best-selling recipe books such as the Kids Lunchbox Cookbook, the Healthy Kids Cookbook and the Guilt Free Chocolate Treats and Baking Cookbook. You can see all the book in our shop HERE.
