Macro Adaptable Recipes

One of my best tips when starting to track your macros for your goals is to stick with single macro foods. For example: Salmon, asparagus, roasted sweet potatoes. It makes things SUPER easy to track as you are getting started.

But I get need to switch it up from time to time.

So, I have created a list of some of my favorite recipes for Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners, Snacks and Desserts below. Play around with adding 1...max 2 new recipes each week. Be sure to track them well so that when and if you make it again, it makes tracking a breeze.

Many of these recipes allow you to manipulate macros--i.e. Change portion sizes of components to meet your specific macro nutrient needs.

These are great to take on the go! We even take them when we travel. I like to double the protein in my servings.
