My tips for success on your weight loss and wellbeing journey, is to have a plan that suits you,” reveals Jacqueline. “A healthy lifestyle has to be able to be easily adopted to be successful. That’s the amazing thing about The Healthy Mummy program – it is easy, simple and you can make it work for you, your family, your budget and your life.”

Jacqueline shares that her favourite part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is the Recipe Hub on the App. “It is a timesaver,” Jacqueline reveals. “From the beginning I would sit and write in all the naughty food I love to eat and to my surprise WOW I would always find a recipe! This is one of the major components that I feel has kept me on track because when I had bad days I would search a craving and find the healthier even tastier version and make it.”

Jacqueline loves that she can check out her pantry and fridge, discover she has say chicken to use, can then type chicken into the App, and literally hundreds of recipes pop up.

It also takes all the thinking out for you,” says Jacqueline.

Jacqueline says her favourite and often go-to recipe on the Recipe Hub is the Spanish Rice with Chorizo. It was also the first Healthy Mummy recipe Jacqueline EVER tried. “I fell in love, it’s a regular on my menu and in my freezer stash,” she adds.

Jacqueline says her Healthy Mummy lifestyle has been able to help her live a healthier life.

My reason for doing this is to live a full healthy, happy life for myself and my family. I also want to be able to help other ladies if I can. I have taken a lot of inspiration, motivation and support from so many amazing women in the Healthy Mummy Private Facebook Support Group – and I want to give back,” Jacqueline says.
