This busy mum made 38 freezable meals in THREE HOURS

It took Belinda Clair just over three hours to make 38 main meals from The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. 

“If you were to ask me what the key to my weight loss success is my answer would be simply to plan plan plan!” says Belinda.

“Someone told me a long time ago if you fail to plan, you plan to fail and I totally agree.”

38 freezable meals in three hours

Belinda made 38 freezable meals and says it didn’t take her much time at all to make.

“Everyone tells me they don’t prep as they don’t have time, but this is false. It can be really quick if you do it right,” she says.

“I work full time, have a small farm to run and two children who are with me 70 per cent of the time.

“I like to plan my day for prepping early on a Sunday, as I like a fast efficient prep where I achieve a lot in a little time.”

Belinda’s 3 top tips for meal prep:

1. Cut corners if you can to save time.

Frozen veggies like peas, corn and carrot mix are a wonderful way to save time.

2. Make main meals

It’s easy to grab an apple from the fridge, I concentrate all of my efforts into main meals that I can freeze.

3. Look for marked down meat and veg

Sometimes I adjust my meals to cater for these or use different veg to what the recipe suggests. This helps keep costs down.

Why Belinda loves meal prep

Belinda says meal prepping allows her time to go the gym, get what they need done for the kids, and eat healthily.

“I can get home and I can reheat our meals. I stay on track 98 per cent of the time,” she says.

“I like to use my side by side fridge/freezer for storing my food. The containers fit exactly right.”

Belinda also owns a small farming business and says on busy day, if those meals weren’t in the freezer, she would of turned to takeaway.

Belinda reveals meal prep has allowed her to live a great life and find time to do things.

Belinda says, “I worked hard for a few hours in the kitchen, did some stuff at the farm and have time with the kids.

“My daughter is now cooking like a little pro and my son (who is high functioning ASD) can make various meals too.

“I’ve lost 5.7st. with the Healthy Mummy and I’ve meal prepped every single week.”
