One Pot, 22 Meals, And All For $70!

Stephanie Marriott, who is a Healthy Mummy community member, proves that cooking can be easy, cheap and she also shows there doesn’t have to be much washing up either!

Stephanie has lost an amazing 22kg on the Healthy Mummy plans


“I’m sure like most mums, one of the things I dislike about doing a big cook is the mountain of washing up to do afterwards,” Stephanie says.

“This got me thinking, I wonder how many meals there are that you can easily whip up in one pot or pan.

“I started browsing the 28 Day Weight Loss challenge hub and The Healthy Mummy website and quickly realised there are so many recipes to choose from.”

Stephanie decided to make a heap of heartwarming meals that can be made in just ONE pot.

“A lot of delicious warming meals that are suitable for winter, can also be cooked in just one saucepan or frying pan. What’s better than that? A delicious hearty meal and hardly any cleaning up to do afterwards,” she adds.

“In just a few hours I have made five one pot meals, which equated to 22 serves of dinners for less than $70.”

What Stephanie Made:

One Pot Spaghetti Bolognese

Budget Friendly Beef Stew

You can find these recipes HERE and on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Stephanie says: “It was so easy, and the best part was there was barely any cleaning up to do.”

Stephanie’s Top Tips For One-Pot Meals:

  • If you have two large pots, cook two meals at the same time.
  • Choose recipes that have similar ingredients, this means less items to purchase. 
  • Freeze extra serves and defrost for a quick mid week meal.

The Healthy Mummy Support

The Healthy Mummy has been able to support thousands of mums – including Stephanie – tackle their health, weight and lifestyle.

Stephanie says: “The Healthy Mummy gives you all of the tools and support that you need to change. Healthy recipes, meal plans, exercise plans and support groups.”

Don’t Wait – Start Today!

Stephanie says: “Don’t wait until next week, next month or next year to start changing habits. Start today.

“Start by drinking more water. Start by committing to a healthy breakfast or lunch each day.

“You don’t have to change EVERYTHING all at the same time – that will only bring stress, anxiety and the feeling of failure when you don’t succeed immediately.

“Above all, remember that you don’t go from a before picture to an after picture overnight!

Love cooking everything in one pot? Then these slow-cooked meals can actually be a friend to the time-poor mum, with just a bit of forward planning and a few minutes work in the morning this winter!

These recipes usually just require you to prepare a few ingredients, add them all to one pot and let the oven, stove top or your slow cooker do the rest. You can then get on with the rest of your day, knowing that you have a healthy and delicious meal ready for your family at dinner.
