MEAL PREP SUNDAY - 29th JULY 2018 - 2000 CALORIES & 6 MEALS PER DAY
This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 2000 calories. The daily intake will be broken down into 6 meals, being breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack, post-workout and dinner.
The 2000 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 particular split - 40/40/20 or 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% 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 - Meatballs and Vegetables
Afternoon Snack - Apple and Cinnamon Zucchini Bread
Post-Workout - Protein Shake
Dinner - Meatballs and Vegetables
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.
