As the Self-proclaimed Queen of Meal Prep, I have been performing cooking demos over the past 2 years on a Sunday afternoon, live on my Fit Like Mummy Instagram account.
Last year I shared with my followers that my vision was to perform meal prep cooking demos and lessons on a regular basis, and this year that became a reality.
This however was not my first rodeo, as I performed a cooking demo at FIBO Global Fitness Africa in October last year as the Face and Body of the international fitness expo. I loved every minute of it and I reinforced the ideas floating around in my head. Meal prep demos bring my love for cooking and my love for people together, so what more can I ask for.
The Meal Prep demo was held at the Hirsch’s Homestore in Fourways. I had the absolute pleasure of teaming up with McCain South Africa and Snappy Chef. It was my first time cooking with Snappy Chef’s uber elegant induction plate. This cheaper, faster and safer way of cooking is rather impressive as it saves 50% on electricity and cooks 64% faster. It was also interesting to learn that the induction plate can be used as is or fitted into a counter top. The lovely people at Snappy Chef sponsored a fabulous prize and the lovely Storm Strang walked away with a Snappy Chef Induction plate of her very own. We had several other winners who also walked away with fabulous prizes.
McCain has always been my vegetable brand of choice, so I was over the moon that I could work with a brand that I truly love and who’s products I use daily. The products I used on the day also happen to be my staples for my weekly meal preps. On the day I cooked 5 of my favourite meals. Despite some technical difficulties on the day I still managed to cook all those dishes in a hour, once again proving that a meal prep doesn’t have to take long and that it can save you both money and time.
Everyone who attended the event received copies of the recipes, but sharing is caring so here you go lovelies. You get them too.
While I kept the adults busy with my meal prep demo, Defy and The Kids Gym kept the kids occupied. They kids got to experience a taster of what they can expect when visiting the newly opened The Kids Gym and also got to decorate super delicious cupcakes. They really had loads of fun.

Happy cooking lovelies
