The 21 Day Fix Dinner Recipes


There really is no “diet” on the 21 Day Fix.   It’s truly a LIFESTYLE of quality and quantity.  The program uses a color coded system of containers and a Shakeology Shaker Cup to give you perfect portion control every time with zero mistakes. NO MORE MEASURING and COUNTING! If it fits in the container, you can eat it, and you’ll lose weight.  One of the most common assumptions is that you get only ONE colored container a day.  Nope!  Through a certain calculation, you are assigned a certain amount of containers throughout the day.  And you will be surprised- it’s A LOT!

  1. Green Container: For vegetables
  2. Purple Container: For fruits
  3. Red Container: For proteins
  4. Yellow Container: For carbohydrates
  5. Blue Container: For healthy fats and cheeses
  6. 2 Orange Containers: seeds and dressings
  7. Shakeology Cup: For mixing your dense vitamins a probiotics
