Note: Iโ€™ve tried to make this meal prep as EASY as possible - so every single day is the same. HOWEVER, if youโ€™re anything like me, itโ€™s quite boring to eat the same thing every day! Please feel free to switch out different protein sources, vegetables, and fats. Also, as with the rest this website, this information is general, not specific to you. You, personally, may need different amounts of calories, nutrients, etc.
