Jessica May Magill experienced the chaos that having three children under the age of four can bring to a household.
Hailing from Sydney in Australia, Magill’s eldest was aged four when she fell pregnant with her 4th child.
She realised that free time would be in short supply so she decided to prepare meals in advance.
When she reached 37 weeks into her pregnancy, Magill prepared a staggering 152 meals and 228 snacks.
YOU magazine reported how the mom-to-be ended up cooking food to fill two freezers despite suffering from swollen ankles.
Magill hopes to show other mothers that healthy meals can be prepared on a budget and in a timely fashion.
Her vegan-based menu proved cost-effective as she was able to buy in bulk.
She says, “It also helps to make double batches of the same recipe – again this saves money but it also only takes a few extra minutes for a lot of extra food.”
The vast array of food included 28 veggie “sausage” rolls, 8 servings of peanut butter chicken curry, 24 servings of mac and cheese as well as a dessert option of 32 servings of choc chip banana bread.
Briefly.co.za understands that Magill gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at the end of January.
