She may be 36 weeks pregnant with her 5th child, but that hasn’t stopped Jess May Magill with an incredible Meal Prep!! GO JESS!!
Determined to be super organised for baby number five, Jess has made 123 serves of vegetarian main meals and 308 snacks!
Jess says, ‘Mega meal prep done!! I have no ankles but I have full freezers for when this bubba makes an appearance so it’s a win!
Jess’s Healthy Lifestyle
Jess is a HUGE fan of the programme having joined The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges almost five years ago, shortly after having her second baby. She lost 20kg and completely transformed her lifestyle.
This is Jess’s THIRD Healthy Mummy pregnancy so she knows all about the benefits of meal prepping healthy meals and snacks for when the new bub arrives.
Jess says, “This pregnancy has flown and still feels a bit surreal! I’m definitely feeling more organised and know having healthy snacks on hand will keep me from skipping meals and binging on unhealthy foods later.”
“There have been times this pregnancy I’ve definitely indulged but having Healthy Mummy habits in place has helped me have a balanced diet without a mega weight gain like in the past.”
Due to all her Healthy Mummy knowledge, Jess isn’t phased by the prospect of losing any extra baby weight after the birth of baby number five.
She says “I’ve successfully lost weight while maintaining a healthy milk supply three times now with the Healthy Mummy, a very different experience from my first where I tried to do it alone!”
What Jess Prepped!
Jess is a vegetarian so she cleverly adapted all her Healthy Mummy recipes to suit her veggie household. She also picked meals with similar ingredients and bought in bulk to help keep the costs down, along with swapping out fresh produce that’s in season or on special. and don’t forget to exercise during pregnancy!
All up Jess prepared 123 serves of meals and 308 snacks!

Jess says, “This will last a few weeks, we won’t have a frozen meal every night, just on nights I know will be extra hectic or nights I can’t get in the kitchen.
Other than the pasta bakes, I’ve just made the sauce and will add rice/mash/pasta where needed to save space. Veggies will also be added on the side!”
