She recently used the time her daughter was asleep to do a massive meal prep with the contents of her fridge, freezer and pantry, only buying some mince and pumpkins.
Check out the amazing food she made plus some tips from Teegan.
On a tight budget, this mum made over 100 healthy meals
Teegan says, “I made over 100 Healthy Mummy meals.
While my daughter was in bed asleep.”
“For me, food prep has been the number one thing that has helped me to lose 37kg.
It has been a goal of mine for a while now to do a huge bulk meal prep. But being on a tight budget can sometimes make this process a little bit daunting to think about. So I emptied out my fridge freezer and pantry staples onto my kitchen bench. And after a quick search on The Healthy Mummy recipe hub.”
“I started putting meals together. I made 130 meals and the only thing I brought that I didn’t already have was a kilo of mince and two pumpkins.
By doing a huge food prep like this I don’t have to cook for months and it will help me to save hundreds of dollars.”

Teegan’s top tips for meal prepping!
- “I always bulk my meals up with budget-friendly things that include lentils, chickpeas, beans, carrots, peas and corn. It’s amazing how much further food goes once you learn a healthy way to bulk it’s a great way to save money.”
- “Always utilise what you already have in your home. Once you have accessed what you have on hand don’t be afraid to substitute and swap ingredients around in a recipe to make it work for you and your budget.”
- “Don’t be afraid to use frozen veggies I find they are super budget friendly and go along way. I always have bags of frozen veg in my freezer.”
- “Use the same ingredients in different ways. To make more variety of meals without having to use extra ingredients. For example, I made a big pot of The Healthy Mummy beef San Choy Bow but I also used this to stuff capsicums with and also added it to a pasta dish. So I got three varieties of different meals using the one recipe.”
