The Nutrition

Each serving provides roughly: 700 kcal, 65 grams protein, 26 grams of carbohydrate,  36g fat

Disclaimer: This will be a large serving of mince. If you like the larger meal, feel free to eat all during lunch. Alternatively this could be eaten for lunch & dinner, or could be two lunches, say Monday and Tuesday.

Disclaimer Part 2: The above is based on just the mince component of the Chilli Con Carne, without a carbohydrate starchy base. This can be included but will obviously affect the Macros.

Disclaimer Part 3: Be careful when leaving this in Tupperware in your bag. Ensure the Tupperware is firmly shut and air tight so that no spillage occurs on the commute!
