Im running a research study for the next few months looking at a bunch of participants doing an overnight fast and were planning to provide the 7-10pm food the night before. Im looking to provide 35% of daily energy requirement (kcal) in the evening split into a meal (25% daily requirement) and a snack (10% daily requirement) with 4 different options of foods (including veggie). For consistency im aiming to have very similar macronutrient proportions in the meal as the snack and across all 4 different options. I need to be able to offer these options to all participants in only a proportionally (by weight) scaled up form depending on their individual requirements. To make things more complicated were not allowed to present people with home made food (due to licensing issues) so we have to buy prepackaged meals e.g. sainsburys spaghetti bolognaise and then give them (for example) 500g of it.

So what im really looking for is meals (And snacks) that you can microwaves (or eat chilled) that are as close to the 55% CHO, 30% Protein and 15% Fat ratios of kcal as possible.

Thanks for your help.

Go for oats they are 60% CHO by itself, just add milk+PB to fit the macros (microwaveable or just leave it to sit in the fridge to soak up)
