If you’ve been following along lately you might know that I’ve decided to give the 2B Mindset a try between rounds of 21 Day Fix. So far it has been surprisingly great! If you are needing some great protein options for the 2B Mindset this is the post for you. All of these 2B Mindset chicken recipes are healthy but they’re also family approved! No more multi-meal cooking for yourself and the rest of the family.
For those of you who aren’t following the 2B Mindset nutrition plan or the 21 Day Fix, all you need to know is that these recipes are not only delicious…they’re also healthy! A win, right?
What is the 2B Mindset Nutrition Plan?
2B Mindset is a new program from Beachbody. It’s a nutrition plan that helps to teach you portion sizes and healthy eating habits. The way the program works is by dividing food into three categories (more or less): Vegetables, Fiber Filled Carbs, and Protein. These three groups are then used to fill your “plate” at each meal. Each meal has a different plate division. Sometimes you are eating 50% veggies and 50% protein and other times there are FFC’s mixed in!
2B Mindset has a list of approved foods for each group and there are videos to guide you through making your daily choices. Another big component of the program is drinking water. Before each meal you are supposed to try and drink at least 16 oz. of water. This not only helps keep you hydrated but it also works to keep you feeling full throughout the day and it helps prevent overeating. More times than not we’re actually thirsty when we feel hungry!
Of course there are a lot more little details about the program that you learn along the way, you can read about the full program right here.
More 2B Mindset Resources & Recipes:
Like any healthy lifestyle, 2B Mindset is a journey. You are going to need help at some point or another along the way. I’ve started compiling some awesome resources to help you out! Check out some of these other posts for more information on the program itself and recipe roundups to fill out your meal plans.
How Do I Do 2B Mindset?
The program is largely based online. There are no meetings or check ins and you don’t technically have to go workout or log on to follow along with workouts. Chicken is a multipurpose protein, so a lot of these 2B Mindset chicken recipes will be useful for your meals throughout the day and throughout the week. If you are like me and prefer to meal plan at least a little bit for the week, these are versatile recipes that you’ll want to have on hand!
Where Can I Find Amazing 2B Mindset Chicken Recipes?
Right here, of course! Just kidding, there are lots of chicken recipes out there that you can use for 2B Mindset. Chicken falls into the protein category so it’s going to be pretty integral to your journey on the 2B nutrition plan. I know some people don’t really love chicken but it’s a great lean protein that we eat pretty regularly both as a family and on our healthy lifestyle plans.
Remember, the portions are different for your different meals throughout the day. You may have to adjust the portions or add in some fiber-filled carbs or veggies depending on the meal. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try some new and tasty recipes, with a little bit of adjustment you can make any of these work for your different meals throughout the day.
These recipes are all 21 Day Fix friendly as well so if you aren’t on 2B Mindset you can still use these tasty recipes in your meal plan this week!
