So as you know I’ve been doing the 21 Day Fix. I thought I’d give you a glimpse as to what a meal of mine may look like.
Depending upon your weight, you will have a certain number of colored containers you’re allowed.
By looking at these containers, you’re immediate reaction is going to be, “How am I supposed to get full by eating out of those?!” Trust me, I did the same thing. But here I am almost 2 weeks in and it’s really easy and surprisingly filling to follow.
Having been away and didn’t get home until late last night, I had to go food shopping today. I went to Trader Joe’s and bought all my veggies and then Target for a few other things I needed for the week. Even though I am a picky eater, there is so much I like to eat on the 21 Day Fix.
This week, I’m sticking to carrots, green beans, snow peas, watermelon, sweet potatoes, brown rice, zucchini, peas, ground beef and chicken. It’s amazing how many different meals you can come up. I still had some whole grain waffles and eggs left so I didn’t need to buy them this week.
For lunch, I cooked my ground beef with onion powder, minced onion and garlic.
I then cooked my rice and made an egg ( I used egg beaters so I can put it in the microwave). Once my meat was done, I emptied the pan and put my rice and egg in there so it was kind of mixed together. I then popped my snow peas in the microwave to steam and voila! My lunch was done.
I measure out my meat and egg in the red container (2 out of 4), my snow peas were in my green (1 out of 3), and my rice in my yellow (1 out of 2). Below is the result is how much I actually ate!!! You’d think, “Wow! That’s a lot!” It looks it, but it’s not. I am always left feeling content and not over stuffed. I am amazed each time I eat a meal.
I am so impressed on how I am doing on this Fix. It is amazing, easy to follow and it works. I’m going to be running a challenge group in late April if you’d like to take part in it. Contact me, send me an email or head over to my Beachbody page for more info.
Remember this isn’t a diet, just a healthy lifestyle we should all be adopting!!!
