28 Day Challenge Meal plan questions
Meal plan food swapping
Read through recipes you’ve selected and look for the areas that can be pre-prepared, even if it’s just slicing up vegetables and keeping them in an air-tight container in the fridge so your ingredient prep is done when you’re ready to cook – it all helps in making things easy for you.
Grains like couscous, brown rice, quinoa, can be cooked in larger quantities ahead of time and stored in the fridge and then heated up or mixed into salads when needed.
Porridges and breakfast puddings can be made the night before and kept in the fridge and then heated up (i.e. porridge) or eaten straight from the fridge e.g. chia puddings.
If any recipes you’ve chosen have marinated meats in them – then do this ahead of time and keep in the fridge or even freeze once marinated and use when needed.
Most meals can be frozen unless they are a leafy type salad (as defrosting would make the leafy greens go soggy). But you can even crumb fish and chicken and then freeze or pre-make healthy pizzas and then freeze and cook when ready to serve .
If you feel too tired on some days to do the exercise, don’t feel bad. Just do what you can and something is better than nothing. Your goal should be to constantly improve on what you do – so if on week one you only manage 3 days, but on week two you manage 4 days – that is a great success.
Breastfeeding specific questions
It’s commonly thought that certain veggies such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and onions, plus cow’s milk and excess chocolate can cause colic symptoms.The Healthy Mummy smoothies are free from dairy, gluten, eggs, nuts, caffeine and artificial ingredientsBut again this is not the case in all babies and most babies don’t show any symptoms when the mum eats these food. If you think you’ve found a problem food, we suggest leaving it out of your diet until your baby gets a few months older or trying a substitute to the common offenders such as rice milk, carob or different veggies
If your baby has severe colic it is always best to ask your doctor about your diet as too much protein, sugar or dairy can make the situation worse and we advise speaking to your Doctor before changing your diet or going onto any weight loss plans.
Our smoothie formulation has been checked by the Monash University for safety in breastfeeding but if your baby has colic and you are using dairy milk not rice/oat/soy/almond milk in the smoothies this could cause your bub to become unsettled plus if your baby suffers from severe colic lots of protein and too much fruit (due to sugar in fruit) could exacerbate the problem. Also, bear in mind that colic has many causes, and we don’t always know why babies have it. It may be no relation to your diet or food intake at all and instead your bub may be have colic due to them not latching on properly, or because they gulping milk too quickly.
We also recommend talking to your Doctor if your baby suffers from Colic or reflux before starting any diet plan as certain foods may exacerbate the colic if you are breastfeeding.When introducing any new food into your diet, we advise being alert to any food sensitivity in your baby such as a change in bowel movements and discontinuing any new diet plan if any food sensitivity occurs.
We also have a Q&A from the Breastfeeding Association on this site for us – under our Breastfeeding tab.A huge focus for us is on a healthy lifestyle and healthy food as well as the smoothies and this is so mums can learn about what carbs are good, why white bread is bad and how to improve your eating and lifestyle so when you lose the weight it stays off and we created a 32 page pink weight loss bible which educates mums on this very subject. We also are there 24/7 to give mums support and if you look at our testimonials page you can see how much the products helps mums and 90% are breastfeeding. Our smoothies also include things like oats and berries – all things which are excellent for breastmilk supply.

With regard to nutrition, we all need to eat healthy foods that have wide variety of vitamins and minerals at each meal time to nourish our cells and have our bodies work at the best of it’s ability – and in an ideal world the absolutely best way to do this is to have freshly prepared organic food from each food group at each meal time. But most people don’t have the time, energy or money to do this at each meal time and when you throw in some extra factors into to the mix – such as being a mum, being sleep deprived and having babies to look after trying to achieve this nutrient rich food combination at each meal time can be very hard to achieve on a regular basis.This is where our plans can be a great help and resource.
The core product on our plans is The Healthy Mummy Smoothie mix which is like a super fuel for the body. It gives the body all of the nutrients it needs in each serving and it doesn’t contain chemicals or weight loss accelerants and is made from natural ingredients. All mums on the plans give constant feedback of feeling more energetic, more vibrant and feeling much healthier – as well as losing weight on the plans and you can see these testimonials on our ‘results’ tab.
