See how you can meal prep for the week for under $100

Here at The Healthy Mummy, we are great advocates of meal prepping to support weight loss. It is one of the main reasons for staying on track with your healthy eating. It also helps to start your week off with a healthy, fresh mindset. Having all your meals planned out and your fridge deliciously stocked helps you to look forward to the week ahead and get motivated!

Our Meal Prep Queen, Sascha Farley gives you a rundown of her week’s meal prep.

Sascha says that she “made 30 mains for $88 and spent one hour in the kitchen with plenty left over.”

She also says she did snacks without spending a cent, in an hour!! So two hours in total in the kitchen and all set for the week.” 

“I’ve kept my meal plan nice and simple which works for us! This is just a snippet of one week. It changes all the time, we never get bored and in fact, this week is all recipes from Week 2 of the October Budget 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge that we have never tried before!!
