35 Macro Friendly Meal Prep Recipes

Summer is quickly approaching and that means it's time to start working on those summer bodies. Even though we are all about intuitive eating, during this time of year we like to arm ourselves with a few macro-friendly recipes that both allow us to eat intuitively and still reach our goals. Heck, even if it's not summer, these 35 macro friendly recipes are still some of our go-to meals to make!

35 Macro Friendly Meal Prep Recipes

Jump to:

The key to these recipes is having a good balance of all three macronutrients: Carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein, with the focus being on higher protein options. Carbohydrates will help keep your energy up during workouts and throughout the day, healthy fats will help keep you satiated, and protein will both help you stay feeling full longer and repair those hard working muscles! 

One thing to keep in mind is that everyone's nutrition needs will vary. If you aren't an intuitive eater and want to know approximately how many calories (and a macro breakdown) you need each day, head HERE. From here you can adjust the portions of the recipes you choose below as needed. 

For our intuitive eating friends, just do you! Listen to those hunger and fullness cues. Eat what sounds good. Drink plenty of water. Get your movement in and don't forget to practice self-care! Yes, these pro tips apply to our macro counters, too! 

You can mix and match any of the recipes below; breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack. But, if you're looking for a more structured meal plan ideas then we would recommend checking these out!
