Why these mums love The Healthy Mummy

“Within weeks of swapping caffeine for a smoothie, I realised I didn’t need the caffeine.” – Vicky Grikepelis

Vicky says, “I’ve currently lost 20kg and am now 68.5kg to date. I’ve also lost many many cms and have come from a size 16/18 to a 10/11.

When I asked a good friend Kelly Garlepp about The Healthy Mummy I was struggling with severe postnatal anxiety and depression after having an incredibly sick prem baby who had bacterial meningitis and also having my oldest diagnosed with autism which was another learning curve. I had lost my way before this during a hypermesis fuelled long lonely pregnancy and was battling along determined I didn’t want medication but unsure how to go forward. I was using sugar as an emotional crutch. 

The Healthy Mummy has massively helped me from the inside out. Within weeks of swapping caffeine for a smoothie and swapping tv for a yoga class, I realised I didn’t need caffeine or sugar to get me through a rough day. 

I’ve become a pro at making healthy balls and snacks for my family and friends. 

On the left, I looked healthy but was I totally unaware how many calories were in treats such as a cake in a coffee shop and other than a short dog walk I was pretty unfit. I’m still no pro runner but I can and do walk most days 10-13km easily! I know how to fuel my body and my kid’s bodies with awesome foods creating Healthy Mummy foods that they both love. I’ve bought muffins, balls and fruit away out most days with us as preparation is key here. 

Thanks for reading.”

“July 2017 I started on the Healthy Mummy smoothies and 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, I went from someone who hates exercise to now loving it! I went from skipping breakfast every morning to now having smoothies! Best part about a smoothie I can drink it in the car on the way to school drop off.. winning if you ask me!!

I have lost 18kg, over 40cm and 3 dress sizes!”

“You get excited when your bananas are too brown to eat so you can freeze them for smoothies lol” – Bree Warhurst

Bree says she has tried many other smoothie powders and The Healthy Mummy puts all of them to shame!!! I would never go back to any of them, or try any other shake!! I’ve tried strawberry, caramel, chocolate and banana and I’ve just bought vanilla to try and they are all so yummy! I add either weetbix or oats with my smoothie (plus fruit and baby spinach) to help make it more filling!”

Bree says that she became hooked on the smoothies when someone from her work brought a tub of strawberry smoothie in. “I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve lost about 12kg. I workout 3-5 times a week and have a smoothie for breakfast and use the free recipes.”
