If you are like many mums your days are hectic and although you might be inspired to try meal prepping after reading some of the incredible meal prepping stories within The Healthy Mummy community, you are overwhelmed at the thought of getting started.
Well, you no longer have to worry.
Meal Prep Queen Sascha Farley has come to the rescue with her top four meal prep tips that are so SIMPLE you will WANT to try them for yourself.
She calls this the ‘no pressure’ meal prep approach. A term we love very much!
Sascha says “Meal Prep doesn’t always have to mean complete meals and everything in bulk!
I believe meal prep is anything that eliminates a step at a later time or anything that simplifies things in the kitchen.
I’ve put together my top tips to take the pressure off!
Everyone has their own way of meal prepping and I like to try them all as each approach serves a purpose depending on each person’s lifestyle.
I’ve consistently done bulk prep which I absolutely loved!
During holiday periods I find this harder so have been doing ‘progressive meal prep’ or ‘no pressure meal prep’ which is prepping bits and pieces when I can!”.
Sascha’s top 4 ‘no pressure’ meal prep tips
1. Eliminate all of the most time-consuming steps of putting a meal together.
– Boil eggs
– Marinate/cook meats
– Chop veggies
– Pre-make a salad
– Roast vegetables
Sascha says “this helps with putting together main meals when the time comes.
I use the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app search filter to put together main meals!”
“For example, searching ‘chicken’ gives me SO many options – Pizzas, salads, wraps and more!”
“Equally, searching ‘boiled eggs’ in the recipe hub shows up hundreds of recipe options.”
2. Prep your dry ingredients for smoothies!
Sascha says “I LOVE my Healthy Mummy Smoothies, especially for breakfast or a snack when I’m extra time poor. Having everything I need already portioned out to pour into the liquid and blend means a smoothie is EXTRA quick and convenient.”

3. Prep your dry ingredients for breakfast pancakes or overnight oats.
Having healthy breakfast options ready to go in the morning means that even if your day throws you a curve ball you are guaranteed to start off your day well. And often if we start our day well we are more inclined to stick to a healthy plan.
Sascha says “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I find this is the time I am most rushed!
Sometimes I like to save my smoothies for snacks, lunch and dinner so picking a quick breakfast recipe is the key!
Healthy Mummy overnight oats recipe, for example, are a great option which I prepare in advance! Get an overnight oats recipe.
“I also like to prep the dry ingredients for my favourite 5-minute pancakes so all I have to do is add banana, milk and blend. You can even pre-blend and/or cook the batter the night before! ”

4. Ready-made snacks don’t have to mean baking!
Sascha’s says “You can keep the majority of your snacks super simple like fruit, yogurt, crackers and dip, pretzel pack or a hit of healthy mummy protein powder shaken with your preferred liquid!”
In terms of quick snack prep Sascha find that the Bliss Balls the most effective. Check out these delicious bliss ball recipes.
She also says “The chocolate cake bites from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge hub are also delicious.”
