Meal Plan – Honey, Soy and Garlic Chicken Sausage Rolls and more

My apologies that the meal planning posts have been absent lately.  I decided to stop the meal plans for a little while because I am making a big change to my health and that includes my diet.  I had a reality check when I went to the doctor a few months ago to talk about my lack of energy.  She basically told me that if I don’t make a change to my health I will not be around to watch my kids grow into adults, meet my grandkids or live a fulfilled life.  I walked out the doctors doors and just cried.

I knew it, I had put on 10kg in the past year after loosing my mum.  I was not exercising and I constantly felt like I needed an afternoon nap.  Whilst I didn’t like hearing what my GP said, I needed to hear it.

So, I am on a mission to improve my health, diet and am now regularly exercising.  I am really thrilled with my weightloss to date and what I have set as my long term goals.  I have been working with a dietician (this is why I couldn’t share my meal plans, as these are paid consultations).

With what I have learnt about healthy eating over the past few weeks I am now back to creating my own weekly meal plans.  However, there are some meals that I may cook the family that are not ‘healthy’, so on these days I am happy to have a poached egg or chicken and salad for dinner.  So please don’t follow my meal plans as a guide to lose weight, I am not a health professional, just a mum who is happy to share what I cook my family for dinner.

Do you have a delicious health recipe you can share with me?

Corn fritters are a great healthy go-to recipe and stupidly cheap! We have them with a yogurt dressing and salad probably once a fortnight

usually I make chicken and corn fritters, I might try a batch of just corn, and love the idea of a yoghurt dressing. Thanks for sharing

Hi Kat,

You may not remember me, but I have met you at a few Problogger conferences. I was actually embarrassed to talk to you because I could write a blog called “The Disorganized Housewife”. However, you might like to check out my healthy living blog – lost 35kg and kept it off – under the recipe tabs – meals the entire family should enjoy!

Best, Liz N (www.lastchancetraining.com.au)

Hi Liz!! Wow that is extraordinary, congratulations on such a great loss. Are you coming to the next ProBlogger conference, I will be talking there!! I’m off to have a look for a few recipes and follow your blog!!

Hey Kat, just realized that they’re all under “nutrition”, not recipes (told you I was organisationally challenged!). I sure am coming to the next PB conference as it’s in Qld and I’m from Brisbane. I really think that meal planning is half the battle – I know how much easier things were from a weight loss perspective when I was organised and knew ahead of time what was for dinner – so in my humble opinion, you’re on an excellent path!

My son was born 7 months ago and I have had the realisation that Ineed to loose the baby weight to fit into my work clothes! I’ve been using an app called MyFitnessPal (I’m in no way affiliated!) and its great to help track food and exercise. It has Aussie foods in its database and links in with a whole host of other fitness apps. I’ve lost 4kg so far 🙂

Good luck with your efforts – you CAN do it!

Hi Kat,

Well done on starting your journey. At only 23 I am doing something similar. I come to your site for recipe inspiration sometimes. My favourite healthy meals are zucchini slice, fritters, stirfries, chicken & home made sweet potato fries. I love quinoa but it makes me sick in the stomache 🙁

Could you use rice paper to wrap the sausage rolls instead?

I too am on a weightloss and fitness improvement journey. I have 6 children and am a daycare provider. I’ve got a busy life and was HORRIBLE at putting my own health first and sitting on my butt was way too easy. I’ve done plenty of diets and tried to change my eating habits to no avail. I didn’t start to see a turnaround until I began doing a nutritional cleansing system. My extremely high blood pressure is down in normal range now, I no longer deal with depression and anxiety, I’ve lost 25 pounds and haven’t been in this good of shape since high school! I’m even training for a half marathon and I’ve only been on this system for 5 months!! It truly has saved my life!
