Only Five Grams of Fat? No Problem.

Saturday, December 26, 2020

Sometimes it takes a little creativity to get your macros just right. I know, because I've been there.. quite a few times. Sometimes you're looking at meal macros thinking 'how on Earth am I going to hit these just right'? Especially when you're stuck with numbers like 5g of fat and needing what seems like a million grams of protein and carbs (okay, I'm exaggerating a little bit, but it's pretty off balanced).

Let's take my meal this evening for instance. My 8 p.m. meal macros look like this:

Protein: 30g
Fat: 5g
Carbs: 35g

One may question how to get SO much protein and carbs, but with such little fat. 

Here's what I had this evening:

5g of Fat Meal

Greek Yogurt (1.2 cups)
1 bag Trader Joe's Kettle Corn
1.3 oz Blueberries
0.2 oz Honey
Topped with Chocolate Donut and Buttery Cinnamon Roll seasoning

Sounds terrible? I didn't think so. 😊
Don't overcomplicate macros. I promise there's something that fits exactly what you need (and will still be tasty).

Let me know if you end up trying this one!
