QUICK AND EASY CHICKEN MEAL PREP - Baked Quinoa Chicken Strips - 2000 calories & 6 meals per day
This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 2000 calories. This is for all those people who say they don't have time to meal prep - this is the easiest meal prep you'll ever see! 30 minutes in the kitchen and everything is cooked and cleaned for the full week.
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 rough split - 31/40/29 or 31% protein, 40% carbs and 29% 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:
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 XO Crunchcereal 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.
