This post is sponsored by the Healthy Mummy who sent me their brand new book “The busy mum’s guide to weight loss” to try out!
So unless, you’ve been living under a rock, then you would have heard of the Healthy Mummy. They do fitness and weight loss plans for Mums. They have just released a brand new book.
And it’s awesome! I have made the cheesy broccoli bites from it and they taste delicious. The problem for me has been walking past the fridge where they are and not eating them all!
Basically, the cookbook (which has over 300 pages!!) sets out a 28 day eating and exercising plan that will help any busy mum to lose weight. The book is quite frankly gorgeous, and none of the food is boring, it all looks fun, fresh and delicious…there’s even treats and snacks in it. There are foods that the whole family will love and recipes that will convert even the most ardent of non healthy eaters to eating healthily!
Every meal is covered, from breakfast (hello bacon and egg muffins or even strawberry cream oats!) to lunch (simple bacon and zucchini slice would be awesome in school lunches!) dinner (I’ve popped a bookmark in the greek beef burgers- yummo!) and everything is easy to do and quick to make, which is why the book is aimed at busy mums. There’s also a whole section on exercise, which I am going to get stuck into over the coming weeks. The meal plans incorporate the exercises into them…so there’s no trying to pretend you didn’t see them.
If you’re serious about losing weight, then this book is a fantastic place to start. I’m going to be cooking a up a healthy mummy storm over the coming weeks!
