Here at The Healthy Mummy, we are great advocates of meal prepping to support weight loss. It is one of the best things you can do to help stay on track with your healthy eating.
It also helps to start your week off with a healthy, fresh mindset. Having all your 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meals planned out and your fridge deliciously stocked helps you to look forward to the week ahead and get motivated!

Sascha’s Five Minute Pancakes
“I will be making my 5-minute pancakes or smoothies for breakfast!! My dry ingredients for my smoothies is prepped each week to tip and blend!!!”
Ingredients (serves 1)
- 1/2 cup oats (48g) plus 1 extra tablespoon of oats if mixture still runny
- 1/2 medium banana (45g)
- 1/2 cup full cream milk (125ml)
- 1/2 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder (3g)
- Olive oil spray
- 1.5 tbsp Greek yogurt (20g)
- 1/4 cup frozen raspberries (60g)
- 1 tsp water (5ml)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (15ml)
Add oats, banana, milk and cacao into a blender and blend well. If the mixture is still a bit runny add the extra tablespoon of oats, as the mixture should be reasonably thick.
Heat the frying pan until hot and add the olive oil spray. Pour mixture into the hot pan to make 6 little pancakes.
Cook on one side until the tops start to bubble, flip over carefully and cook for an extra 30 to 60 seconds – don’t let them dry out!
Place cooked pancakes on a pan, pour the berries onto the hot pan with a teaspoon of water and cook until soft. Turn the heat off.
Place a dollop of Greek yogurt on top of the pancakes, then add the berries and maple syrup.
Consume and lick the plate.
