Vegetarian Meal Prep with Marek Fitness no. 9


I am a 35 year old male, vegetarian, working out 5 days a week and playing volleyball twice a week for 2 hours on average. I weigh around 93kg and with this meal prep I maintain roughly a 10 to 12% body fat level. I also allow myself to eat whatever meal I feel like twice a week, especially around leg day and back day.
