healthy eating meal plansCheree Sheldon, Nutritionist for the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges has shared some tips on ways to plan and prepare for the August Challenge to make it even easier to follow:
The August 28 Day Challenge is designed for simple, quick cooking, with all recipes composed of just five main ingredients. Pretty easy already, but with some smart planning, you can make your month even easier!!
Let’s start by looking at the recipes you can scatter throughout your month (utilising the customise feature on your menu plan), that you can make in bulk and freeze. This will work well with all of the soups, the risotto, and the turkey meatballs (but make the zucchini noodles fresh each time).
Look out for the following recipes during the August Challenge that you can cook up in double or triple batches and then, using the customise feature, alter your menu plan so you can repeat throughout your weeks:

  • Breakfasts: Strawberries & Cream Breakfast Bowl, Chia Pudding with Fruit & Yoghurt or the Chocolate Oats & Strawberry Muesli.
  • Snacks: Pear & Berry Galette, Baked Honey Custard and Cheesy Broccoli & Egg Muffins.
  • Lunches: All of the salads will work well if you prepare in big batches and just hold off on the dressing until you are ready to serve. The mini frittatas and the spinach pie will also cook well in bulk as long as you eat within a few days.
  • Dinners: Thai Chicken Meatloaf (this also freezes well), Turkey Meatballs, Chicken Lettuce Cups (just cook extra mince and put in lettuce when you are serving), Quick Pork Curry, Chicken &  Mushroom Risotto and also the Lemon Chicken & Veggies. Just cut up extra veg for the next night and marinate the chicken overnight, this tiny bit of extra prep, will save you extra time when cooking.

Making simple changes by customising your menu and repeating some recipes, will not only ease your kitchen time, but also make it easier for you to buy in bulk and save money at the same time!
