Vegetarian Meal Prep – 2000 calories

This week we are meal prepping for a daily intake of 2000 calories. As an added extra, this weeks meal prep will be all vegetarian meals.

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 – 34/32/34 or 34% protein, 32% carbs and 34% 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 Shake
Morning Tea – Yoghurt, Muesli and Fruit
Lunch – Three Cheese Pasta Bake
Afternoon Snack – Almonds
Post-Workout – Protein Shake
Dinner – Three Cheese Pasta Bake
