With summer only 50 something days away, I thought no perfect time than now to clean up my diet and tone my body. I am pretty good at finding clean-eating meals to cook throughout the week but I wasn’t very experienced in portion control. Luckily for me, my husband had purchased the 80 Day Obsession Challenge Pack! So in preparation for the next 80DO challenge to start at the end of this month, I thought I’d use those cute little color containers and start the 21DayFix since I had 21 (well, 23 to be exact) days to practice my diet.
My BB coach directed me to Fixate Cooking, a program on BeachBody On Demand which offers up a large variety of recipes that center around portion control. This was a tremendous help in understanding what I can and cannot eat throughout the day for my specific meal plan. Plus, new recipes are always exciting to try out! Planning out to get the right amount of containers can be a little time consuming, but what meal-planning isn’t?
The meals below are what I had for my first week. I’m on Plan A, and each recipe was delicious! I would highly recommend them if you’re a Plan A as well and are looking to try something new. Each recipe aside from PBJ Shakelogy can be found on Fixate Cooking, written out in the “Program Materials” link. If you try any, let me know how you liked them!
M1 – Breakfast: PBJ Shakeology
When I first started 21DayFix, I was most excited about Shakeology. I have done a few beachbody programs in the past and have tried a couple of the shakeology flavors and strawberry was hands down my favorite. I had originally mostly made it as a Strawberry Banana shake but I wanted to experiment a little and see what else I could throw together that tasted delicious as well as was healthy for me. Of course I turned to Pinterest for this, like most of us do for anything. That’s where I found a recipe for this PBJ shake. Now if you love a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it’s highly likely you’ll like this shake. Throw in some banana and the flavor is even more delicious.
