MEAL PREP SUNDAY - 16th SEPTEMBER 2018 - 1400 CALORIES & 6 MEALS PER DAY
This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 1400 calories. The daily intake will be broken down into 6 meals, being breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack, post-workout and dinner.
The 1400 calorie intake per day has been divided or 'split' into the 3 macro-nutrients (macros); protein, carbohydrates (carbs) and lipids (fat). This week's daily meals have been planned out to meet a rough split - 45/40/15 or 45% protein, 40% carbs and 15% fat. The amount of each of the macros is up to personal preference, diet requirements or a target metabolic consumption. The table below shows the breakdown of the daily calorie intake into each of the macros.
Each of the 6 planned meals plays an important part in obtaining the required daily calorie intake. This week's meal prep will include the following food for each meal:
Breakfast - Breakfast Smoothie
Morning Tea - Yoghurt Muesli and Fruit
Lunch - Chicken Noodle Soup
Afternoon Snack - 1 Banana
Post-Workout - Protein Shake
Dinner - Chicken Noodle Soup
The table below shows the macro breakdown of each of the meals to get our target daily intake.
Our meal prep video this week will focus on the preparation of morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner. The breakfast smoothie can be made fresh at home before you leave each day and the protein shake can either be taken on the go and consumed with water or when you get home.
