Have you been able to set aside some time each week to prepare your healthy eating meal plans for the July 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge? If not then why not see if you can have a go this week and see if it helps make things easier for you.

Allocate some time on the weekend in the lead up to the start of Week 3 of the Challenge and do the following tasks:

  • Customise your meal plan for the week; what new recipes would you like to try? what meals did you make extras of in Weeks 1 and 2 that you have frozen and can use this week? what are your favourite Challenge recipes that you like to make all the time that you can add to this week’s plan?
  • Do you need to do some grocery shopping to make your next lot of meals or can you use leftover ingredients from the week prior and just add a few additional items?
  • Depending on which recipes you’ve chosen for your meal plan will determine what you can prepare ahead of time. Go through your plan and see what you could make now so you’re ready for Week 3.
  • If following the Week 3 Meal Plan as suggested you could make a large batch of the Carrot Muffins and store in the refrigerator or freezer to enjoy as healthy snacks throughout week 3.
  • Make the Curried Chicken Mince breakfast and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Then just cook the egg to finish off the recipe.
  • Prepare some brown rice and keep in the fridge if you’re going to be making recipes like the Brown Rice & Tuna Salad earlier in the week. If you won’t be using the rice for a few days then freeze in individual portions and defrost in the morning before you plan to use it.
  • Make the Beef Stew With Mashed Root Vegetables in a larger batch to share with the family or to freeze leftovers for another meal. Once cooked and cooled store in an air tight container in the fridge until ready to reheat and serve.
  • Prepare the Cacao & Coconut Chia Pudding recipe in a larger batch and store in the refrigerator to enjoy for healthy snacks during the week.
  • The Flaxseed Fruit Loaf and Lemon Bars are two other recipes you can make ahead of time and store in the refrigerator/pantry/freezer as required to have available during the week.
  • Prepare the Coconutty Pumpkin Soup in a large batch and enjoy later in Week 3 as well as keeping leftovers to get you started on your healthy eating for Week 4.

Remember – you don’t have to do everything in the above list, even just choosing to prepare a couple of meals and snacks ahead of time will get you ahead of the game when it comes to healthy eating during Week 3.
