What’s a flex bowl, you ask? A flex bowl is the key to hitting your macros, whatever they may be, but especially protein. Some of us have a lot of trouble getting enough protein throughout the day (me), others of us struggle meeting our carbs (Jack *not fair*), but whatever your struggle, flex bowls can help. A flex bowl can consist of anything you want (it’s flexible that way), but the base is usually greek yogurt and protein powder. Here’s a combination that I like, but feel free to mix it up however you like.
- 1 serving non-fat greek yogurt (or with fat if you can spare it)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like ones that don’t have a lot of fat or carbs because I don’t want to waste my macros on protein powder)
- 1 serving diced peaches (no sugar added in water)
- 30g sliced almonds (if you have fat to spare)
Mix it all up and enjoy. If you need extra carbs you can add more fruit, cereal, oatmeal, etc.
