The stunning mama says she’s learnt the importance of not only healthy eating but also meal prep since she joined The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in October 2015.

Robyn’s recent cook up has enabled her to get ahead for the week.

“This meal prep will be our dinner on Monday and Tuesday night, as they are my work days, and all of our lunches for the week.”

On top of this, Robyn predicts the snacks she made will last her (and the family) an entire fortnight.

The snacks will last me two weeks – we have one sweet snack and then boiled eggs or veggie sticks each day,” she says.

Since following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, Robyn feels meal prep is the real key to success. Robyn admits, “I often work late shifts so coming home to healthy pre-made meals helps me stay on track.”

Robyn and her love for cooking

Robyn says she loves cooking, but she also likes to keep her evenings free so she can train for her upcoming half marathon race.

“I love baking, so now I bake healthier snacks. I like to find ways to make my favourite meals healthier, and that is where The Healthy Mummy played a huge part,” Robyn says. 

“I’m training for a half marathon, so I like to pick similar things that can be put in the slow cooker so I have the afternoons to train.”

Running Robyn

Robyn says she saves both time AND money using the recipes on 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Recipe Hub.

“After a busy day before joining the Challenge, we would often resort to take away purely for convenience. Now we have healthy meals ready which I make on a Sunday,” she reveals.

“My daughter was a really fussy eater but now eats what my husband and I do. My number one tip on meal prep is use what you have. It doesn’t have to be hard or take all day, just use similar ingredients to save you time and money.”
