Paleo Meal Prep - Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie - 1800 calories & 6 meals per day

Are you on a Paleo diet? Or are you ready to try something new? If that's you, check out this week's full meal prep that's all natural and all healthy!
We are bringing in the natural ingredients for a twist on an old favourite - Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie with plenty of veggies.  Our snack this week will be cashew nuts and bananas. Complement the day's meal prep with a tasy and quick breakfast shake, made from almond milk, frozen fruit and protein powder for breakfast every morning and another protein shake in the afternoon.
The 1800 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 - 35/35/30 or 35% protein, 35% carbs and 30% 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. 

 

Protein Carbs Fat Total
Split 35% 35% 30% 100%
Calories 640 644 540 1824
Grams 160g 161g 60g

 

 

 

 

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 Shake
  • Morning Tea - Cashew Nuts
  • Lunch - Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie
  • Afternoon Snack - Bananas
  • Post-Workout - Protein Shake
  • Dinner - Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie

 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 Shake 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.
