hands up if it’s still soup season where you are 🙌🏻⁣

Soups get a bad rep in the macro world and that makes me sad! Soups can be just as “macro friendly” as the rest of ’em. ⁣

Take this chicken poblano soup. It can be protein, fat and carbohydrate balanced by dialing up and down a few ingredients. Add beans, leave out sour cream, add sliced avocado, thicken it up, thin it out – it will impact the macro make up. ⁣

What do you do if you don’t have full control over the ingredients or portion sizes? Make an educated best guess – heat, eat and enjoy. I also love the strategy of pre-logging in the dairy. Add the meal in your diary ahead of time and eat “around” it with the rest of the day’s meals and snacks. ⁣

Macros are meant to be a framework for teaching you how much food is appropriate for you. Don’t let tracking stop you from eating food you love 👻
