Speaking of salads, this fresh salad with grilled chicken is our go-to 21 Day Fix lunch recipe!

If you love trying new workouts at home and have good Internet, Beachbody On Demand allows you to stream workouts and have access to her weekly cooking show (also called Fixate).
It’s super affordable, and you’ll also get access to exclusive bonus 21 Day Fix workouts with the Beachbody on Demand.
If you’ve done the 21 Day Fix and love the meal plan but need a BOOST in the workouts – check out 21 Day Fix Extreme.
If you loved the original, the 21 Day Fix Extreme is a great next step, and the Fixate cookbook works with both programs! See my Extreme review here
If you haven’t tried the 21 Day Fix or Extreme yet –
The meal plan allows you to eat anything from a long list of healthy foods, and the containers help you watch your portions without having to count calories.
With the Extreme workouts, you don’t get a treat though.
Autumn’s new Fixate Cookbook is the same setup.
It uses the 21 Day Fix containers, but it also includes the nutritional information as well.
So if you have a family member counting calories – they can see how many calories are in each meal.
It makes it super easy to use no matter what workout program you’re doing.
