10 Week Follow Up Challenge

Let's Make this a Lifestyle!

The amount of times we have heard the remark "I wish it was another 10 weeks" at the end of the challenge so that you can keep getting support is phenomenal. Based upon that alone, we have decided to create "Let's Make This a Lifestyle!" our 10 week follow up challenge! Anyone who has completed the first 10 Week Challenge is eligible to participate, and it's a good chance for you to continue the journey with fellow participants or maybe mix with other contestants.

Why would I want to do another 10 Weeks?

The aim of this 10 weeks is to reinforce all the good eating behaviours and habit you have created. BUT importantly, during this 10 weeks we will work on understanding why you choose to eat not so great foods and what you gain from doing so. When you understand your behaviours, you are more likely to be able to modify them!

What do you do in this challenge?

You will complete weekly challenges and tasks to give you ongoing motivation and learn about your personal triggers.

We will address:

  • Expectations
  • Eating behaviours
  • Stress
  • Dealing with Family
  • Social Situations

Throughout the challenge, you will stick to the original meal plans but you will be asked to take turns coming up with recipes to share with each other.

Like the first 10 Week Challenge, participation is the key to success - get involved with the support group and cement those newly formed healthy habits.

Most of us love an alcoholic  drink every now and then. Whether it’s a glass of wine at night with dinner, a beer at the pub with friend or a cold cider on a sunny day - alcohol is part of our lives.
But sometimes we find it hard to stop at one and what effect is this having on our body and health?

I love the slow cooker! If I could make everything in there I would - pop it on in the morning and it's ready when you get home. Too easy.

Chicken Liver Mousse

Finding it hard to get vegetables into your kids?

Chicken Liver Mousse

If your under 5 year olds are anything like mine, getting more than a couple of select vegetables into them is a challenge! 

We are told that children must eat vegetables because they contain loads of vitamins and minerals but are vegetables really the most nutrient dense foods? Should we be concerned if our kids only eat, say sweet potato and carrot, like mine!?? What are they missing out on? What other foods are good sources of valuable nutrients?

Coconut Yoghurt Recipe

Dairy free and super easy

Coconut Yoghurt Recipe
I have recently been trying store bought coconut yoghurt and have to say, I have grown pretty fond of it. I love that I can also give it to my baby who doesn't digest dairy products well. What I don't like is the cost of it! It really isn't something I can justify buying too often.

Courgette and Kumara Fritters
Having your own vegetable garden and growing seasonal veges is a great way to save money. In New Zealand, courgettes grow super well, so often we are left with a fridge filled with them!
