These 21 Day Fix Vegetarian Meal Plan recipes are perfect for your healthy lifestyle! The delicious vegetarian recipes I’ve gathered in this post will help you avoid meat and still eat a wide variety of meat-free recipes.
The 21 Day Fix can be difficult to plan for even without any other dietary restrictions, which is why I’ve assembled a full 12 days of meal ideas that take into consideration that some of you may want to avoid meat. I’ve tried to work protein into your snacks and breakfasts to help make sure you have plenty of great options to keep you going.
You can make all of these recipes or just pick a few–these days are not planned out according to containers. If you’re looking for a 21 Day Fix meal plan for specific container brackets, I recommend these Easy Meal Plans.
These 21 Day Fix recipes are great for a Vegetarian meal plan because each recipe has container counts calculated for you AND they have no animal products. It takes all of the guess work out of it for those of us who are looking for 21 Day Fix options as well as vegetarian options.
A few notes about doing the 21 Day Fix program as a Vegetarian:
- There are two ways to do the Fix as a Vegetarian. I’ve seen success both ways, and encourage you to try both to see what works best for you:
- Follow the vegan diet plan, but occasionally use a red for animal protein.
- Eat according to the regular plan, using your reds for vegan protein, and instead of using your yellows for things lower on the food list (rice cakes, tortillas, bread) use them for only items higher up on the food list (sweet potatoes, quinoa, beans) to keep the most nutrients you can in your diet.
- Pay attention to what goes into your yellow containers. Instead of using them for items lower on the food list, you’re going to want to eat from higher up. Since lots of the yellow container foods on the regular plan are now red container foods for you, it’s a place where you could be losing out on some nutrition.
- Don’t forget that portion control is still the focus, just like any other weight loss program.
As someone with a background in Nutrition, I have some strong opinions about how to be Vegetarian on the Fix.
I love that Beachbody separates the grains on the 21 Day Fix vegan meal plan into two categories–this is so important and other mainstream diets don’t do this. Eating quinoa as a vegan isn’t the same as eating bread, for example. The yellow a and yellow b lists make so much sense to me.
My main issue with the Vegan food list is that almost all of the proteins are processed (looking at you veggie burger requirements). As someone who eats plant based (I don’t eat tofu, tempeh, other meat substitutes, or processed foods) I struggle a bit with the Vegan Fix and finding complete proteins. I’ve had to play with my portions a bit to find enough protein and it’s not quite as cut and dry as Beachbody makes it seem.
Vegan foods doesn’t mean processed foods. For me, eating Vegan means focusing on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes – healthy foods that fill me up.

What weight bracket would this meal plan be for? Looks amazing! Thanks!
Thank you so very much for all the hard work you do and share!!! You are amazing and I truly appreciate everything! I have been a vegetarian all my life – however not necessarily a “healthy” one. I eat way too much cheese, pasta, etc. I have a hard time losing weight because all “diets” only allow tofu, etc for protein. The limited choices get so boring. I am anxious to try the recipes you have suggested! Thank you again!
Have you by any chance expanded this or would you be willing to? I love what you have here and I need the help with the planning right now.
Thanks so much!
Could you tell me what calorie bracket this meal plan is for?
This meal plan is intended to be used with all calorie brackets–you choose which recipes to use and how many servings to eat. I’ve found that my readers use these plans more than the ones that are created for specific calorie brackets. I have several of the calorie bracket plans too, if you’d like I can pull a link for you–which calorie bracket are you in?
Hi Becca: Im not sure how recent or old this post if but thank you for sharing your knowledge on this! Can you expound on your response to Elizabeth please. Are you saying that as opposed to following a calorie bracket (which by the way I would love the link you offered her if possible) that we can just use these recipes by proportionately following the guidelines using the colored portion cups?
OH and do you have printable of the recipes/meal plan?
Sorry Im new to this and am at a wee bit of a loss here. :)
Thank you again.
Hi Charlene! I’m sorry about the delay–we have been out of town.
No, I’m sorry that wasn’t super clear. There are two ways that I can write meal plans. The first is to say “if you are in calorie bracket A for the FIX, eat this Monday, eat this Tuesday, etc.” The second way is to say, “These are all recipes that are fit into the FIX plan and have container counts calculated. Use a blank meal planning spreadsheet and pick out the ones that you’d like to eat and fill it in,”
I’ve found that the first way is a lot more work for me, and results in a significant amount of requests to “swap out this meal” and “remove this ingredient from the plan.” Pulling together recipes for you to choose from (the 2nd way) allows you to pick the recipes that you will eat and I have created an editable spreadsheet where you can easily pop them in and make your own plan (that is found in my printable library).
You can find your bracket on this page: https://mycrazygoodlife.com/find-your-bracket/
And I think Sara has gotten you all fixed up with the printables, as well, so please let me know if you need anything else. My email is a better way to contact me for a quicker response :)
Hi, when you say eat according to the regular plan but use your reds for vegan protein, do you mean use the reds from the regular list or the reds from the vegan list?
Either list. Whichever one makes the most sense based on what type of food you eat :)
So would I count beans as a red or a yellow? Sorry for the questions. I go back and forth with my eating but would prefer to eat no meat. I like my Greek yogurt for breakfast though and fish and eggs at times so I just wasn’t sure how to follow it with containers
If you’re being mindful of your other carbs (sticking to the top of the yellow list) I’d count beans as a red – but keep in mind that you need to really track your progress doing it this way, and you also have to be strict with what you’re eating. Eating pickles as greens and bread as yellow won’t get you the results you want if you’re following a hybrid plan, it takes a lot of testing, recording, and focus!
I’m happy to help when you need it :)
