What is the 2B Mindset Program?
If you don’t know about the 2B Mindset program and you have questions, hopefully I can help! I’ve done a little background on the program and you can read all about it right here: What is the 2B Mindset Program From Beachbody?
Should I do 2B Mindset?
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that when I initially read through the program I wasn’t impressed, but I decided to give it a try, and…I love it. No counting containers, a huge focus on veggies, and reasonable expectations. My fill 2B Mindset review will come after I’ve committed to it for a few weeks, but I’m liking it so far.
What to look for in 2B Mindset lunch ideas:
It’s important to understand what you should be looking for in 2B lunch recipes! The program has guidelines for each meal and you’ll need to be aware of them in order to be successful and collect recipes that fall in line with the program.
There are food lists for the 2B Mindset program much like 21 Day Fix but they are different. Make sure you are familiar with your food lists so that you are only choosing recipes that contain foods that will fir into your plate.
The breakdown for lunches is 50% vegetables, 25% protein, and 25% FFCs. All of these 2B lunch recipes are suitable for that plate division or they can be used alongside other recipes in order to create your ideal lunch plate! Don’t forget about your water, that’s a big part of the program and you’ll want to make sure you are following along in order to see the most benefits for your hard work!
