Here at Healthy Mummy HQ, we are mad about meal prep! And when you’re on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, it’s a useful skill to have to help you save time and money!
We are SO excited to announce two new Healthy Mummy ambassadors, we now have two mums who are our Meal Prep Queens to help and inspire you with your own meal prep.
And they are…drumroll please…Kaitie Purssell and Sascha Farley!
Meet our Meal Prep Queens!
Meal prep is a great way to stay on track with healthy eating. Not only are you cooking the meals and snacks so you know that there’s nothing nasty and artificial in there, but having heaps of meals ready to go for the week means dinner is sorted even on the days you can’t be bothered to cook. Plus it’s cheaper than a takeaway!
As our Meal Prep Queens, Kaitie and Sascha will share their top tips, motivation secrets and budget advice.
Check out our Meal Prep Queens behind the scenes at the photoshoot for our new MEAL PREP QUEENS COOKBOOK!
You can also chat to them and get their tips daily in The Healthy Mummy Support Groups
Kaitie Purssell is a mum of two from Lake Macquarie, NSW and has lost 21kg on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Kaitie says, “Meal prepping has helped so much in my weight loss journey. I am a busy mum of two on a tight budget, and always having a freezer full of meals and snacks saves me from skipping meals or grabbing a takeaway on nights where time is limited. It absolutely keeps me on track!”
So what is this mum’s top tip for meal prepping if you’re a beginner?
“Make double, triple or quadruple amounts of the dinner you’re making each night and freeze it. That’s how I started. If I was making one banana bread, I’d make two, cut one up and freeze it.”
Sascha Farley is also a mum of two from Cromer, NSW and has lost over 30kg on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
“Meal prepping has been one of the main keys to my success not only for staying on track but for staying on budget. Meal prep means there is always a back up for ‘one of those days’!”
So what pearls of wisdom does Sascha have to offer?
“I always meal prep snacks on Saturday and main meals on Sunday. I set aside 1-2 hours to cook on a Sunday. I’ll make my meal plan, write my shopping list on Friday, shop on Saturday. Sometimes it happens sporadically across the weekend. And I always ask for my kids’ input because then they’re more inclined to eat what I cook.”
Healthy Mummy founder and CEO Rhian Allen says, “The Healthy Mummy is focused on empowering mums to live a healthier life and I am so excited about bringing this new level of education and support to our community via our newly crowned Meal Prep Queens.”
