We love the Beachbody 21 Day Fix workouts, but the meal plan is really what helped us both see amazing results. We’re sharing our best 21 Day Fix recipes that are quick and simple to make! Each recipe includes the container count and works with the 21 Day Fix and Extreme meal plan.
21 Day Fix Meal Plan Recipes
Breakfast 21 Day Fix Recipes
Power Oats -1 Yellow, 1 Red
1 yellow container oatmeal (about 1/4 cup before cooked)
1 egg & 2 egg whites – 1 Red container
Blend together and eat.
Apple Crisp + 2 Eggs – 1 Purple, 1 Yellow, 1 Red
1/4 Oats cooked for 1 Yellow Container
Topped with 1 small apple for 1 Purple Container
2 eggs for 1 Red Container
Top with cinnamon and 1 tsp Truvia if desired
Again, just blend together and ejoy!
Lunch 21 Day Fix Recipes
Paleo Chicken Salad – 1 Red, 1 Blue, 1/2 Purple
1.5 lbs of Chicken (cooked)
1 cup of chopped walnuts
1 large bunch of grapes sliced in half
2 ripe avocados
How to Make
Peel and mash your avocados in a mixing bowl. Add sliced grapes. Bake chicken through and cut up until shredded, and add to the avocado mixture. Then add in your walnuts and mix. The lemon juice is to season and also help the avocado from turning brown. I add lemon juice as I mix the walnuts in.
Green Machine Smoothie – 1 Red, 1 Purple, 1 Green
1 Scoop Strawberry Shakeology (1 Red)
1/2 a Banana (1 Purple)
1 Green Container of Spinach/Celery (1 Green)
1 tsp coconut oil (1 tsp) optional
12 ounces Water
Ice to taste
One of our clients, Brenda, actually started getting me hooked on the Green Machine during our February group! The smoothie tastes like strawberries and banana because they are stronger flavors. You seriously cannot taste the spinach, and it gets in one of those veggies each day.
Buffalo Stuffed Potato – 1 Yellow, 1 Red
Approximately 1/2 Chicken Breast Baked (1 Red – not all the way full)
1/2 baked white potato (1 Yellow)
Top with hot sauce and a little greek yogurt with the room left over in your red container
This is a quick lunch or dinner for anyone. Even Jake, my fiance, loved it! Pair it with a salad to get in your green containers.
Chicken Salad – 1 Green, 1 Red, 1 Orange
Chicken (about 1/2 a breast) in 1 Red container
Lettuce, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes in 1 Green Container
One Orange container of balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil
It’s not my most creative use of the containers, but it sure is good!
Dinner 21 Day Fix Recipes
Healthy Tacos -1 Red, 1 Orange, 1 Green
1 Red Container of browned turkey, chicken or beef (based on your preferences)
1 Green Container with a mix of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions
Yellow 1 Corn Tortilla
1 Blue Container shredded cheese
Pad Thai Noodles – 1 Red, 1 1/4 Green 1 Orange, 2 Tsp
Confessions of a Fit Foodie recipe
Spicy Vegetable Soup – 1 Red, 1 Green
Steak Fajita Bowls – 1 Red 1 Green
This recipe is from the Crazy Good Life. It’s like nachos but with zucchini noodles! You can choose what you put into your fajitas to figure out the containers. We usually do 1 red and 1 green!
Turkey Meatballs – 1/2 Green, 1 Red, 1/2 yellow
The container count is based on 2 meatballs dipped in in Hot Sauce View the recipe

The Garlic Diaries created this yummy recipe!
Spaghetti Squash Lasagna – 1 1/2 Red 1/2 Blue 1 1/4 Green
This recipe comes from Confessions of a Fit Foodie. I love using spaghetti squash as a replacement for noodles! You could also use it with lean hamburger meat and marinara sauce to do a traditional spaghetti.

In addition to these 21 Day Fix recipes, Autumn has a new cooking show once a week on Beachbody on Demand.
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 All Access Pass.
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.
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
