Primal Meal Prep
One of the few delivery services that bases its meals on the amount of macronutrients (carbs, fat, protein) individuals need to maintain / gain / lose weight healthily.
Users put in their weight, height, age, activity level and goal; and the macro calculator gives an estimation of how many calories need to be consumed and the amount of carbs, protein and fat in each meal. Diners order their meal based on specific amounts – choose a protein, carb and vegetables, and you’re good to go.
Prices vary according to what you order and the quantity, and you see exactly how many calories go into each meal. For example: 100g turkey breast + 100g brown rice + 100g stir-fried cabbage and mushrooms = 331 calories. This is the ideal choice if you’re in training or wanting to lose or gain weight.
