This week’s recipes:

How to customize:

  • Carrot Cake Pancakes
    • This recipe is already vegan.
    • If gluten-free, sub the whole wheat flour with a 1:1 GF replacement.
    • Any milk can be used. 
  • Popcorn Chicken with Rice Noodles
    • Make this vegan by swapping the chicken for diced tofu or tempeh. 
  • Vegan Chickpea Curry
    • The chickpeas can be subbed with diced chicken breast if desired. Make sure to cook the chicken all the way through.
  • Pretzel Bites
    • Swap the milk for a dairy-free version, the egg whites for Just Egg, and the cheese and butter for dairy-free versions to make this vegan. 
  • Sweet Potato Wedges with Tahini
    • This recipe is vegan. Woo hoo!
    • Any potato can be used, but we love the combo of sweet potatoes and tahini. 

If you have any questions or need ideas for alternate swaps, head over to our Facebook Group to ask or email me at nick@mealpreponfleek.com! 

How to alter the macros:

  • Carrot Cake Pancakes
    • To reduce carbs, omit the raisins.
    • Serve with yogurt, cottage cheese, or eggs to increase the protein. 
  • Popcorn Chicken
    • To reduce the carbs, swap the rice noodles for riced cauliflower.
    • Reduce the fat by baking the chicken instead of frying it. (An air fryer is best!)
  • Chickpea Curry
    • Increase the protein by swapping the chickpeas for chicken, which also reduces the carbs by about 25g per serving. 
  • Pretzel Bites
    • Increase the protein by serving with hard-boiled eggs. 
  • Sweet Potato Wedges with Tahini
    • You can increase the protein by serving these with plain Greek yogurt. 

*Please note that any changes to ingredients will alter the macros on each recipe.
