The 21 Day Fix meal plan follows a container based system by Beachbody. Each container is a different color and represents a different type of food.
The idea is pretty simple–green for vegetables, purple for fruit, yellow for carbs or starches, blue for healthy fats, orange for seeds or dressings, and red for proteins. The question then becomes…what are the best recipes for each container? The red container is meant for your proteins: meat, yogurt, eggs, tofu, and even shellfish.
Now that we know what goes into the red container, let’s find some great meals to fill them up!
My favorite recipe that uses 1.5 Red (and .25 Blue) is Cloud Bread! It satisfies a carb craving like no other!
