๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ COOKING FOR SANDY
3 days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility. We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much ๐Ÿ˜ Today is one of her days.

Since she has a shellfish allergy, I did chicken for her. She said she really enjoyed it!

———————

๐ŸŽฏ CALORIE TARGET: 1450-1650
Because I eat 2 meals/day most days – each meal needs to be between 700-800 calories on average

๐ŸŽฏ MACRO GOALS: (within +/- 10g of target grams shown)
Protein 20% – 30%
Carbs 25% – 30%
Fat 35% – 40%

RESULTS – ๐Ÿ”จ NAILED IT! ๐Ÿ”จ

Interesting comparison – on WW ๐Ÿ’œ Purple, I used 42pts (I have 20/day) but on straight Calories / Macros I was right on target. It really shows the difference not being able to have sugar free / fat free makes…
