Welcome to Round 2 of The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and well done for signing up to make a difference to your lifestyle!
The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Challenges, as the name says, are designed especially for Mums. We know what it’s like having all the responsibilities of being a mother, with so many people pulling you here, there and everywhere, that it is often really hard to make time for yourself.
But making that time is so important as not only will you reap the benefits of a healthy eating diet plan and exercise routine but so will your family as they’ll have a mum, partner, sister, daughter etc who is full of energy, healthy and happy.
food02In this round we’ve worked hard to ensure the recipes are even easier to prepare, with the majority ready in under 30 minutes, to ensure making healthy changes to your eating and exercise routines is really simple.
Breakfasts include recipes that can be prepared in under five minutes such as the Banana & Cheese Breaky or Ham Bruschetta. As well as recipes that you can make a few days before so you have something healthy to quickly grab in the morning, including the delicious Chocolate Oats & Strawberry Muesli (so tasty you’ll think you’re having dessert for breakfast!).
Lunch is a great time to have something substantial to eat and if you have little ones at home they’ll also enjoy the lunch recipes featured in Round 2. We understand that not everyone has lots of time during the day though to prepare a hot lunch, whether you’re at work or at home, so we’ve put together  a selection of lunch recipe options that you can mix and match to suit your needs.
Find your lunch favourites and make extra or repeat them throughout Round 2 to make it easy to follow a healthy eating diet plan. Quick & Healthy Pesto Penne, Turkey & Tomato Panini and Mexican Tacos with Salad are just some of the options in this round of the 28 Day Challenge.
The breakfast and lunch recipes serve 1 but at dinner time the recipes serve 2 as we know you’re often needing to feed your partners at this time of the day. The recipes are really easy to increase if you need to serve the whole family and we’ve suggested the ones we think are really family friendly or that can be frozen or stored in the refrigerator for another meal.
Dinner recipes include salads such as Chicken & Avocado Salad or Asian Prawn Noodle Salad, soups like Mediterranean Beef & Lentil or Aromatic Chicken & Lemongrass and healthy versions of family favourites such as Lamb Rissoles with Sweet Potato Chips or Turkey Meatballs & Spaghetti.
It’s important to remember that when following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Challenge you can easily amend recipes to suit your tastes. For example use different types of fish if it’s easier to source for seafood recipes or replace with another protein like chicken or pork fillets. You can also include a Healthy Mummy Smoothie at breakfast or lunch if you’d prefer, rather than following every recipe.
Part of following a healthy eating diet plan is making changes and trying new things so we have included a few recipes that might bring new tastes to your table and end up becoming healthy family favourites. For example Cottage Cheese Falafels or Vegetarian Lentil Burgers. Give new tastes a try to see what you think.
As with other rounds of the 28 Day Challenge there are loads of snack options to choose from so you never get hungry. Most evenings we have included a dessert style snack as The Healthy Mummy diet plans are all about choosing the right food options so you can maintain a healthy lifestyle as opposed to depriving yourself. So, look out for Hot Banana Caramel Creams, Healthy Raspberry Brûlée or for those who like something savoury after dinner, try the Creamy Cheese Dip with Crunchy Vegetables.
For this round there will be a “Pantry Preparation” Shopping List that you will receive before the challenge starts so you can stock up on pantry items (many you’ll probably already have) and get organised early. Each weekly shopping list includes everything needed for the week’s recipes but if you’ve purchased items from the Pantry Preparation List you won’t need to buy these ingredients again.
We’ve also highlighted which ingredients can be increased if you want to double all the Dinner recipes and easily feed the whole family.
So get ready for a Round of delicious, healthy and easy to prepare meals. We’ve really tried to ensure following the weekly meal plans is as easy as possible so you can incorporate healthy eating into your lifestyle without thinking twice.
