healthy eating meal planMake the final week of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for July fantastic by getting organised ahead of time and doing some food preparation in the lead up. Then you’ll never have the excuse of “I’ve got no time” to make healthy meals.
Try a selection of the below food preparation tips and customise them to suit the Meal Plan you’ve selected for your lifestyle for Week 4:

  • Make a large batch of the Red Lentil Soup and the Chilli Bean & Bacon Soup. Keep some aside to enjoy during the week plus freeze some to have in the upcoming weeks.
  • Bake the Corn & Chive Muffins and store in the fridge or freezer to enjoy for snacks or serve with soup during Week 4.
  • Make a larger serve of the Garlic & Rosemary Nuts and store in a glass jar in the pantry to have for healthy snacks when required.
  • You can make the Asparagus & Tomato Risotto either on a day when you have more time available for cooking or ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze until ready to serve. Then just defrost and reheat for a quick and healthy dinner.
  • Plan to make healthy desserts like the Orange & Chocolate Avocado Mousse or Polenta & Date Pudding on days when you have more time free for food preparation. Or make ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to enjoy.
  • The Beef & Sweet Potato Stew is great to make in a large batch and enjoy for dinner with the family. Then freeze leftovers and have in the coming weeks to continue with your healthy eating once the July Challenge has finished.

Don’t worry if you can’t prepare any of the recipes from your Week 4 Meal Plan ahead of time. Just trying to sort out your ingredients e.g. peeling and chopping vegetables and storing in air tight containers in the fridge or having an organised area in the pantry for all your healthy snack options, will help you save time and make it easier to choose the healthy options all the time.
