If the thought of preparing one meal, much less all your meals for the day — plus snacks! — makes you want to crawl under a table, you’re not alone.
But we’ve got your back: We created this easy meal prep for the 21 Day Fix 1,200 – 1,499 calorie level (Plan A).
Every meal, every snack so once you’re done prepping, you’re done. Then all you have to do is eat!
21 Day Fix Meal Prep
At this level, this is what your daily Portion-Control Container count looks like:
- 3 Green Containers (vegetables)
- 2 Purple Containers (fruit)
- 4 Red Containers (protein)
- 2 Yellow Containers (carbohydrates)
- 1 Blue container (healthy fats)
- 1 Orange Container (seeds & dressings)
- 2 tsp. (oil and/or nut butters)
We divided that container count to make six meals and snacks to keep you fueled from morning until night.
In fact, this menu includes even more food than we could show you in photos: Add two hard-boiled eggs or ¾ cup of low-fat plain Greek yogurt with breakfast, and drink a Shakeology with water and a ½ cup of blueberries with Snack 2.
