After the long weekend I’m sure everyone has partaken in lots of alcohol and food in large quantities – so why not post some macro/diet friendly recipes for your short week ahead?

Working with macros over the last couple years I’ve become accustom to knowing roughly what calories, fats, proteins, and carbs are in most foods. This has certainly helped me along with my intuitive eating to feel a bit more balanced.

If you ask me I’m personally a huge fan of both sweet and savory. Why should a diet be boring tilapia and asparagus 24/7 – 7 days a week? I’d rather throw myself off a cliff then revert back to those days.

I’ve broken up categories into my favourite personal recipes I’ve come up with along with some of my favourite macro friendly recipes I’ve found and tried over the years. Prep your week in a fun and flavorful way!
