In her time as a Healthy Mummy Challenge member, she has learned a few tricks when it comes to meal prep.

By preparing simple snacks and a few meals in advance she knows she is less likely to stray from her healthy eating plan.

She says “using what I call my ‘Cook, Bake & Make’ method 2 hours of meal prep on a Sunday afternoon can still be very effective.

I got all of the following done today in just under 2 hours for meal prep Sunday:

Kerrie’s ‘Cook, Bake & Make’ meal prep method

Want to know how Kerrie made all this in two hours?

She says “I used my ‘COOK, BAKE and MAKE’ method again.

That is:

  • one thing to cook… which was the Zucchini Bolognese Sauce
  • one thing to bake… which was the Crustless Quiches and
  • two things to make which are no cooking required… which were the Raw Cherry Slice & the Beetroot Mint Cashew Dip.


  • I popped the Bolognese Sauce in first to cook and simmer.
  • Then whilst that was cooking made the Quiches and popped in the oven.
  • Whilst both of those were cooking I made the Raw Cherry Slice and popped in the freezer to set.
  • Next, I popped the eggs on to boil whilst I made the dip.
  • Once Dip was made I cooked the corn, chopped the veggies, portioned my crackers and lastly washed the fruit.

Two hours later and done!

This prep together with some small mid week prep Wednesday/ Thursday will get me through a busy week knowing I’m all prepared.

If you find you have limited time in the kitchen to prep too try this method as it really does work!”

The Healthy Mummy team would like to thank Kerrie to showing us just how easy meal prep can be, particularly with her ‘Cook, Bake & Make’ method.
