Not only that, the recipes are also budget focussed using pantry staples and budget ingredients that will also help your hip pocket!
How this program will help BOOST your immunity, and save money!
Healthy eating to support your immune function does not have to be expensive. The recipes for the next 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge will ensure your body is getting the right nutrients it needs to support your immune function without breaking the bank. This meal plan focuses on nutrients to support your body before, during and after an infection. These nutrients include Vitamin A, C, D, and zinc, as well as pre and probiotics.
Some great immune boosting foods include, oranges and pumpkin (Vitamin C), dairy, fish and leafy veg for Vitamin A, some meats, cereals and vegetables for Vitamin B6, plus milk, cheese and eggs for Vitamin B12.
Broccoli is also known as the “Crown Jewel of Nutrition” since it possesses Vitamin C, Vitamin A, folate, Vitamin E, along with significant amounts of minerals such as potassium and iron. It is also a brilliant source of fibre. Carrots are another great option high in Vitamin A, B and C.
Recipes that won’t break the bank
Recent inflation and a subsequent rise in grocery prices has really added financial stress onto Aussie families. In order to help mums, as well as packing a nutritional punch, these recipes take advantage of using similar ingredients to help maximise groceries budgets. The meal plan also uses some plant based recipes to further reduce costs. There are also pantry basics used as ingredients that you buy fresh, canned or buy in bulk and cook from scratch (eg lentils).
PLUS as well as boosting your immunity and saving money, you will LOSE weight on our 28 Day Plans – just like 100,000’s of mums have already done.
