21 Day Fix day 1 review

Before I begin, I have alto admit that I'm only doing the meal plan portion of this program right now. I am FULLY committed to finishing P90X3 and am on week 6! So this review is for the food portion only - just a heads up!

Today was my first day following the 21 Day Fix meal plan. I fit into the category of 1200-1499 calories each day. Int he meal plan book, you are given a simple formula to figure out your calorie level. The calories aren't mentioned again! Woot woot!

In my meal plan group, I eat 3 green containers, 4 red containers, 2 purple containers, 2 yellow, 1 blue, 1 orange, and 2 teaspoons. I was a little nervous that this amount of food wouldn't get me through therapy. Man was I WRONG!

For breakfast, I had an Orange Julius Shakeology on my way to work around 7:15. You can find the recipe HERE. I subbed one yellow container for my R&R. I'm not 100% sure that's allowed! but I need my R&R after these X3 workouts. 

Snack #1 happened around 10:05 because I got wrapped up in my students and forgot to eat. Yes. I forget to eat. This snack was a small gala apple and 12 almonds that I roasted last night. Yum!

Lunch was nice and filling. 2 green containers worth of sweet butter lettuce, 1 green container of cukecumbers, 6 slices (or one red container) of low sodium, nitrate free turkey breast, and 1 orange container of the 21 Day Fix balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Snack #2 was probably my favorite. Cottage cheese and strawberries. The cottage cheese was measured with the red container and the strawberries in a purple container. 

Dinner was, by far, my favorite meal of the day! Broiled white fish topped with one of the spice recipes from the Fix , 1 green container of peas, and some organic stone ground mustard. I also drizzled a little bit (2 tsps to be exact) of EVOO on everything cause I still had to use my 2 tsps.

Snack #3 was not "by the book" but I enjoy my evening green tea and am not willing to give it up. No added sweetener or anything else. Just nice, warm, yummy Yogi green tea!

Stay tuned for what my meal plan looks like for this first week! Blog post will be up later!
