REVIEW/GIVEAWAY: 'The Busy Mum's Guide To Weight Loss' Book!

Hi guys! In exciting news, I'm running yet another Giveaway! I'm thrilled to be collaborating with The Healthy Mummy, because even though I am a Mummy, I'm not always terribly Healthy. Do you know what else I am? Busy! And I imagine a lot of you are also busy Mums who would love some help losing weight and becoming healthier, because we have a habit of putting ourselves last, which isn't good for anyone in the long run. Which brings me to 'The Busy Mum's Guide To Weight Loss', an inspirational and well-written book packed full of healthy recipes and featuring 'the ultimate 28 day plan' for weight loss.

This glossy cookbook contains over 100 simple and budget-friendly healthy recipes including options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks.

Breakfast options include Choc-Oat Granola, Salmon Rosti, Oat & Cinnamon Pancakes and Breakfast Quinoa Salad.

Lunch options include Easy Pizza Wraps, Autumn Minestrone and the Chargrilled Capsicum, Olive & Cheese Toasted Sandwich.

Dinner options include delicious recipes like Beef, Ginger & Miso Stir-Fry, Fish & Veggie Kebabs, Mexican Lasagne and Loaded Sweet Potato Fries.

Some Snacks to whip up include Spinach & Feta Puffs, Lemon & Coconut Bliss Balls, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies and Carrot and Avocado Handrolls.

And there are yummy Drinks such as the Sneaky Snickers Smoothie, Mint Chocolate Sundae Smoothie and the Banana Boost Smoothie.

There's also an exercise section at the back which details easy exercises you can do at home. I love the appealing recipes in this book and when I flick through and look at the gorgeous food photos I just want to have a crack at all of them! There are weekly meal plans with shopping lists to make your weight loss journey super simple and there's a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes. A lot of them don't even seem like you could lose weight eating them (hello Cherry Choc Slice and Choc Mint Creams!).

I made the BLT Pita Melts, check out how they turned out below! I can tell you they were delicious, and so easy to make, too!

I'd recommend The Busy Mum's Guide To Weight Loss to anyone looking to drop some kilos whilst still eating delicious meals that won't break the bank. And of course it's perfect for busy Mums who don't have the time to stuff around with complicated recipes, and just want a reliable, healthy eating plan and exercises they can do at home.
