    • How To

Y'all know that we have skimmed the surface on the topic of macros, but not as much as what I am thrilled to do today with my guest, Lillie Biesinger from Lillie Eats and Tells.
Lillie has truly hacked the system to create recipes with whole ingredients that are super macro friendly, meaning that they are high protein, moderate carbs, and low fat. And don’t worry if you have no idea what a macro is, we are going to talk about it more in this episode. 
If you’ve ever wished you could make macro counting simple and easy, I’ve got great news for you, Lillie has done the hard work for you. Tune into this to hear exactly how!
