The Bodybuilding Meal Prep Cookbook: Macro-Friendly Meals to Prepare, Grab, and Go by Michelle VodrazkaThis is a great book if you are completely unfamiliar with meal prepping and you are interested in getting started. Vodrazka lays everything out for you and takes you step by step through the entire process.
The reason I was interested in this book was because I have been meal prepping for years, but am always looking for ways to make the process go quicker and smoother. Additionally, I love getting new ideas for meals to prep. While I havent tried any of the recipes yet, they look delicious and some will definitely be making an appearance in my weekly rotation!
I have two gripes with this book, which is why 4 stars and not 5, is the macro content of a lot of the recipes.
1). If I were to follow the macro breakdown that the author suggests (which I actually do!), I only get 30g of fat per day. If I were to make 3 recipes for a days worth of food, I would likely be way over my fat macro allotment. Many, many recipes had between 10-20g of fat per serving. To me, if you are recommending that people following your macro breakdown and you saying to only get 20-25% of your daily macros in fat (for cutting), then there needs to be more fat friendly recipes.
2). There arent a lot of options if you dairy free. A lot of recipes use cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt and if you are dairy free, there really isnt a good alternative that wont significantly impact macros. Yes, you can always just leave off cheese in a recipe, but cottage cheese or greek yogurt have a very high protein count and their milk alternative counterparts do not. It was just sad to see how many recipes called for some sort of dairy product.
Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found the information very useful. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is ready to take the leap into meal prepping and prioritizing their health and wellness.
