I just recently bought Autumn Calabrese’s FIXATE Cookbook. You can use the recipes as a 21 Day Fix cookbook, but it’s also perfect for anytime. Even if you’re counting calories or sticking to a specific diet like Paleo you can do it with these recipes.
Autumn created the Fixate Cookbook as part of her passion for cooking and also to simplify the 21 Day Fix meal plan.
We’ll share our review of the cookbook, give you 5 recipes to try from it, and also give you a FREE 14-day membership to her cooking show!
Below is how the cookbook became to be:
The cookbook includes 101 recipes to use with the 21 Day Fix Portion-Control Program, but the recipes also work as a healthy cookbook as well.
The FIXATE Cookbook Review
The simple recipes are broken specifically developed for the 21 Day Fix, and 21 Day Fix EXTREME. The meals are still something the whole family enjoys though!
I love using this 21 Day Fix cookbook because it keeps me eating more like the rest of my family versus focusing on 1 food in a container at a time.
Along with the containers, it also includes the nutritional information. This makes it super easy to use no matter what workout program you’re doing.
For example, it may say this is a red, green, and a yellow for a recipe. It’s super easy to use (Get the book here).
Each recipe is simple to follow, doesn’t require a ton of time or weird ingredients.
Every recipe is realistic for an average mom or dad cooking dinner for their family. It’s also been great for a single person because of the portion sizes!
FIXATE offers a ton of variety as well, including:
- Simple Recipes
- Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free and Paleo recipes are included
- Easy Dessert Recipes
- Shakeology Recipes
- Yummy Cocktail Recipes
Autumn’s little boy was 6 when the book was first in production. So every recipe went through him!
We also love that their finally is no more guesswork and eyeing your recipes for containers!
The 250-page cookbook is full of great options and is organized so well.
Here’s what you can expect to see:
- My food philosophy
- Kitchen tips
- The container system
- Sauces, condiments, and dressings
- Skinny cocktails
- Dietary index
Autumn Calabrese’s Diet Philosophy
Instead of an extreme approach to food, Autumn offers a great balanced meal plan. Her Portion Fix containers and this cookbook help you eat the right amount of foods, but nothing is ever off limits.
Wondering about Timed Nutrition, carb cycling, macro-counting and more?
Check out Autumn’s brand new video series also goes into all of these topics and more! It’s a great addition to FIXATE!

I can say it’s easy to use all day long, but my version of “easy” and “yummy” can vary from yours. So what better way to show you what to expect than to give you a preview of the 21 Day Fix cookbook!
The first recipe in the preview is:
Pineapple Chicken Skewers
They are 1/2 a green, 1/2 a purple, and a red.
In the preview, you’ll also find recipes for:

- zucchini chips

Plus the preview shows you how each recipe is broken down into 21 Day Fix containers and calories.
Why a 21 Day Fix Cookbook?
Beachbody and Autumn both knew eating out of those little containers would get old. So they wanted to add in variety!
You’ll see recipes on Beachbody’s website and Autumn’s social media channel, but they wanted the best recipes in one place.
Autumn also recognized the container counts for recipes could be tricky. By starting with 101 recipes, it helps educate us on how other certain recipes fit into our meal plans.
Autumn shares how she keeps her kitchen too!
You’ll learn a lot more about Autumn and her habits in the first part of the book. In the Kitchen tips section she’ll show you how to organize your kitchen and even plan for leftovers!
What if I have dietary restrictions – Can I use the 21 Day Fix Cookbook?
Definitely! Fixate, the 21 Day Fix Cookbook includes Paleo, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian recipes.
Where can I order the FIXATE cookbook? How much does it cost?
The FIXATE cookbook is available online – It’s cheaper from a coach than Amazon.

With how popular the cookbook was, Autumn and her chef brother (cool coincidence huh?!) started a cooking show!

Still not sure about streaming?
We did a full review on Beachbody on Demand that you might like. I was so hesitant to make the switch from DVDs to streaming, but now I wouldn’t ever go back!
