It can be easy to eat a relatively unhealthy diet whilst you’re tired, busy, sleep deprived as it’s easy to reach for pre-packaged snack foods when you’re exhausted.
Therefore, it’s a very good idea to have plenty of healthy snack ideas on hand so that you can take in enough calories and have lots of energy and to help boost your metabolism in between meals and to aid a healthy weight loss when trying to lose pregnancy weight or when following the lose baby weight plans

The sweet-tasting spud is surprisingly nutritional – and surprisingly versatile.
Sweet potatoes are much better for you than you’d expect, containing lots of fibre and plenty of vitamins and nutrients and are perfect to include on your Lose Baby Weight healthy eating plan. But what can this sweet yet savoury spud do for our health?
Sweet potatoes are much better for your blood sugar than their white counterparts. Sweet potatoes rank much lower on the glycaemic index than white potatoes, and this means that their glycaemic load is lower than a white potato. In simple terms, sweet potatoes are processed more slowly, meaning that your blood sugar levels don’t spike – instead, the sugar from sweet potatoes is processed slowly, keeping your blood sugar levels stable. This helps to prevent cravings for fatty, sugary foods.
We all have days where there are a million and one things to get done. We have to drive the kids to school/sport/social events; pick up dry-cleaning; work late; feed unexpected visitors; the list goes on.
To reduce the stress of days like this, it’s a great idea to have a couple of healthy meals ready to go in your freezer that you can just heat and eat.
Now I’m not talking about processed foods or ready meals that are loaded with calories, fat and additives. I’m talking good quality, healthy meals that you normally cook from scratch each night as part of your weight loss plan.
We all know the golden rules of the supermarket – take a shopping list with you, don’t go shopping when you’re hungry, and definitely don’t even go NEAR the lolly aisle.
But if your focus is on losing weight and therefore healthy eating, these five little tips might just help take your results to a whole new level. Try them for yourself and see if you can fill your trolley with the best possible items.
When you are trying to lose weight, it’s a great idea to ensure that you have your pantry cupboard well stocked with healthy, good quality food.
Preparing ahead means that you’re more likely to have the necessary ingredients on hand for a range of recipes, as well as all the essentials to whip up something quick and nutritious.
We often get asked if pregnancy weight is different to lose than normal weight. And the simple answer is no. Fat is fat and no matter how you gained it, it isn’t a different type of fat if you gained it in pregnancy.
But is pregnancy weight harder to lose than non pregnancy weight? For most people the answer is YES.
And this is because of the significant change to a woman’s life, time, priorities and energy levels post baby (plus the extra weight we gain around the tummy which can be tough to shift). And this applies whether your children are babies or are a lot older.
Pre having children we often just didn’t quite appreciate having time to yourself. I certainly did not appreciate how much time I had to do my own thing and now with two children I find it hard to have any time to myself (which I don’t mind!).
This means that pre baby there is time to go to the gym, or to focus on exercise, or to have a full night sleep each night, or to take it easy if you feel tired, or to spend time cooking and shopping for healthy foods or to have a day off if you feel like it – all of which can mean losing weight is easier to do or certainly more achievable – as you have the time to focus 100% on you.
As the weather starts to heat up we start looking for lighter and healthier foods to make. And healthy eating salads that are good to help you lose pregnancy weight are a top favourite.
It is common to think ‘oh I am having a salad so it must be healthy’ and then loading it up with creamy sauces and really oily dressings which don’t make it so good on the calorie front if you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.
Salads are often thought to be not very filling and more of a side dish, but if you use the right ingredients and experiment with healthy eating salad recipes then you can easily make delicious, filling and healthy salads that are great for you and your family – plus are great for the lunch box!
Below is one I made today and it was quick easy, tasty and filling.
