Guess what peeps?! It’s that time again?. Everyone’s favorite topic, FOOD!!!!!!!
I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had a great time Saturday with the Aggies Games. Thanks again for all the help and support. Last year we were able to get a food truck to provide some yummy grub for everyone; this year we were not able to get one due to all the other events going on in town, so Kelsey and I made some meals. We did pretty much what we would be doing for ourselves for normal meal prep. Portion control is key. If you don’t have a scale being able to eyeball portions can be an important skill to develop especially if you are eating out somewhere. These are examples of 3oz of protein, ½ c of rice, 2oz of zoodles and 6oz of protein, 1 c of rice and 2 oz of the zoodles.
So looking good at Macros for the small portions 28 grams of protein, 24 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fat approximately 250 cal. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and it brings it up to 16 grams of fat for a total of 369 cal. The larger portions a would be 56 grams of protein, 48 grams of carbs and 19 grams of fat @ 619 cal. Now just think about this for a second, a whole delicious meal with balanced Macros for the same amount if not less than most energy/protein bars. You could add a bunch more zoodles or other mixed greens for volume with very little calories being added.
Trust the process, keep it simple and be happy in your healthy eating.
