Healthy meals: How to get good food on the table, fast
Why do so many people struggle to cook healthy meals at home? Well, it’s usually because they’re short on time. And as busy mums, we all know what it’s like when we just can’t keep up with the cooking, cleaning, drop offs, pickups, groceries, work, and the list goes on…
When there’s not enough time and we’re already hungry, we reach for convenience food, whether it’s packaged snacks or takeaway. Whatever’s easiest to fill our tummies in a hurry! We don’t have to tell you the facts… you already know it’s bad for your health, your family’s health, and your bank balance.
Instead, let’s get practical about what you can do about it.
So, how do we get healthy meals on the table quickly without spending heaps of money or spending hours in the kitchen with a rumbly tummy or impatient kids?
Two simple strategies for eating healthy
Making good food at home (even when you’re short on time) is totally doable when you follow two simple strategies:
- Prepping ahead (when you’re less busy and/or starving)
- Having some go-to meals and snacks that are quick and nutritious (and ideal recipes for weight loss!)
So, pick a strategy that works for you (or mix it up with a bit of both) and start to build up your collection of healthy recipes.
Want to know how to find weight loss recipes without feeling overwhelmed by all the options out there? Here are some of our favourite (free!) recipes for both meal prepping and super fast home-cooked meals.

So, to sum it up… what does it take to stay on top of your healthy eating plan?
Plan, prep, and think about your food well ahead of time so you’re not figuring out what you want to eat when you’re on the verge of “hanger.” And keep a collection of weight loss recipes you can count on to be delicious, nutritious, budget-friendly, and family-friendly.
