If you’ve got hours to spend preparing healthy foods for yourself and your family – you probably don’t need to read this.
But if you are like many of us who are busy mums on a weight loss diet, you might find that dinner time can be a bit stressful sometimes.
It’s tough to come home and cook healthy foods when you’ve been running around all day, the kids are getting to ‘that’ time of day and your pile of dirty laundry is growing taller by the minute.
So why not lighten your load every now and then by preparing the majority of a healthy eating meal the night before?
Today we have 2 great ideas for how this can be done, meaning minimal effort (and minimal cleaning up!) a few nights a week.


Roast Chicken & Chicken Pesto Pasta

If you are a busy mum on a weight loss diet like Lose Baby Weight, a roast can be a good weekly staple.
Simply chop up a load of veggies (in the morning or afternoon if you won’t have time before dinner) – think sweet potato, carrots, onions, pumpkin or even tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil and throw them in the oven with a whole chicken.
Here is a great recipe here for a Simple Roast Lemon Chicken that is both simple and tasty.
Instead of placing the whole chicken on the table, (which can lead to over-eating as we tend to pick at the meat even when we’ve had enough to eat) serve up the meat on to the plates in the kitchen and let everyone fill their plates with the roast veggies and some steamed greens (we love using asparagus, peas, beans, or spinach).
Keep 1 cup of the roast meat aside to make a delicious Chicken Pesto Pasta the next day. All you will need to do is cook some wholemeal pasta and then dollop 4 tbsp of store bought pesto (or make your own healthy pesto) along with the chicken. Stir to combine and serve immediately. 

Spaghetti Bolognese & Veggie Packed Beef Burritos

Yet another family favourite, Spaghetti Bolognese is one of those healthy foods has the added benefit of being able to be cooked in a slow cooker so that you don’t have to spend too long in the kitchen.
Keep 2 cups of Bolognese aside for the next night to make some Veggie Packed Beef Burritos.
Grab some wholegrain tortillas and lay the table with grated carrot, cheese, rocket lettuce, jalapenos, chopped cabbage and finely sliced green onions. Heat up the Bolognese and then allow everyone to build their own burritos and tuck in.
