Book Review – The Busy Mum’s Guide To Weightloss

The busy mum's guide to weightlossWe are all busy, all tired and don’t have enough time! So when the Healthy Mummy sent me their new book – The Busy Mum’s Guide to Weightloss – I wasn’t sure what to expect. I don’t have time to be counting up calories and keeping a food diary. And I don’t want to be bothering with meals that have 100 ingredients in them that cost me a fortune.

However, I was pleasantly surprised! The Busy Mum’s Guide to Weightloss is a 28-day plan that gives you recipes for three meals a day plus snacks and smoothies. It is easy to read, divided into four, colour coded sections for the four weeks. Each section has a weekly menu overview and a shopping list and then beautiful, easy to follow recipes.

A lot of the recipes are family favourites, just done a little differently to make them more healthy. There are bolognese, pasta, fritters, curry, pizzas, pancakes and delicious sweet treats.

I decided to try out one of their recipes for myself – now *disclaimer* I’m not much of a cook unless it involves chocolate and baking. I get bored easily and I don’t like to be in the kitchen. Hubby does most of the cooking and if he’s not here I’m known to have cheese on toast or some fruit. But I gave it a shot!

I chose the Zoodles with Roast Vegetables and Halloumi. We eat zoodles quite a lot and we all love halloumi! It was SO easy! I quickly chopped the veg and put them in the oven with garlic and oil and zoodled the zucchinis. A quick fry of the halloumi and I popped the veggies and halloumi on top of the zoodles and we are good to go.

Check it out – aren’t I clever lol!
