If no container information is added to the recipe, I made an educated guess in parentheses after the link. To calculate containers for any 21 Day Fix recipe, count the containers for the entire recipe, then divide by the number of servings. You can watch a video about how to count containers here

Meal prep is the key to staying on track when doing the 21 Day Fix. Planning what you’ll eat and not falling into a trap of, “I’m home from work and don’t have time to make something healthy…Let’s order pizza.” We’ve all been there!

Zoodles are an amazing way to get your greens in on the 21 Day Fix! Learn more about them here:

  1. Great list! Thanks for sharing these ideas. It’s hard to think of new ideas for the 21DF sometimes.

  2. Hi
    I can see the list but can’t get the recipes?? Thank you

    1. Click on each recipe to head to the blog who has it posted :)

  3. How do you know the # of containers per recipe? I’m new at this….

    1. Erin,

      Almost all of the recipes have a note at the bottom saying how many of each containers is in one serving. If all else fails, just estimate–it’s the best you can do.

  4. I can click on the recipe but I can’t view it because I haven’t been in invited by the blogger????

    1. Angie,

      I removed that link – thank you for telling me!

    I was wondering what the difference is between using shakeology and another protein powder……the Shakeology is SO expensive!

    What was your experience and results of the 21 day fix?

    1. Sophia,

      I’m sorry for the delay in responding. Shakeology is a meal replacement shake–it’s more filling than protein powder and it has no soy or artificial flavors. I know it’s expensive–it’s a tough decision. I look at it like it’s a meal. I’d pay $4 for breakfast or lunch, so that’s what I use it as.

      Honestly, I notice a huge decrease in my junk food cravings when I drink it–and that alone is well worth it for me.

      I love the 21 Day Fix. I use the eating plan as a daily “check” for my nutrition. The first time I followed the food and exercise plan, I lost 8 pounds and 1.5 inches off my waist. I’m doing CrossFit now, so like I said I use the 21 Day Fix as a daily plan, and I add an extra red and yellow on gym days.

      I hope I was helpful!

  6. There are an awful lot of these recipes that are not adjusted or calculated to the 21 day fix container portion sizes. Even worse, there are a LOT of really great looking/sounding dishes in your list that don’t even have the amount of servings they would render. I’m brand new to this diet, and I’m struggling to find options so I don’t get bored and give up. I love your list, don’t get me wrong…but not knowing how much to eat of it will make me eat too much of it! I know you are linking these from other bloggers, but I’ve passed on many of these great looking recipes just because of the lack of portion indications.

    1. Hi Nate,

      I’m sorry that you’re having trouble finding food options. I chose these recipes because they looked delicious and easy, even though some don’t have the containers listed. I’m going to go through and update this post in the next week or two and add my educated guesses about containers for each recipe.

      As for getting stuck with ideas and getting bored, I get that–I find that I do so much better when I plan ahead and eat easy meals like lean seasoned meats and veggies (and whole grains), and put all of my snacks in ziplock bags ahead of time. Target even has some great ziplock bags that are red, yellow, and green so you can easily spot your snacks and which containers they count as.

      I’ve had a meal planning post as a draft for a bit now and you’re talked me into finishing it quickly and posting it. I’ll let you know when it’s ready. Though meal planning isn’t the quickest thing to do, it’s totally worth it.

      I hope you’re doing well on the 21 Day Fix!

      1. Hi Nate,

        The post is updated!

  7. That beef and broccoli isn’t clean… corn starch and brown sugar???

    1. Hi Caryn,

      Thanks so much for bringing that to my attention. I also found that some of the links weren’t working. My list has been updated above!

      1. Oh hey thanks! It’s a good list :) thanks for compiling.

    2. Ellen Spisto says:

      Can cornstarch be used in a 21day fix recipe for a little thickness?

      1. I sometimes add a little,
        I don’t count it :)

  8. I love your printouts for 21 day fix. I was wondering if you had any for the extreme program. More specifically the workout calendar. I would love for the styles to match that is why I am asking.
    email is best to reach me.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond.
