This recipe is great to meal prep when we need dinner on meal prep day. This way we get dinner for two on Sunday and lunches or dinners Monday-Thursday.

    It’s my mom’s variation of a Filipino dish called Menudo. It has been totally adapted though =)

  3. Ohh!!! I just got it! Chicken menudo haha! That’s awesome! Btw, I am looking into protein powders, what would be your recommendation? Gold standard seems to be the most popular one, how do you like unico nutrition?

    I will always be a huge fan of Optimum Nutrition but I really like the taste of the unico nutrion protein powder (chocolate peanut butter) if I am having a craving for something sweet =).

  6. At the top it says it’s 209 calories per serving but at the bottom it says 336. Which is correct? And what is the serving size?

    Hi there, not sure what you mean. The calories are the same on the top and bottom from what I can see. You might have been viewing an old cached version of the link. You can definitely try substituting the sweet potatoes for butternut squash but it will essentially change the recipe/macros and taste which is totally fine, but then I’d probably leave the fish sauce out too. =)
