Week 41 - 21 day Fix Week 2

I love the 21 day Fix!!!  Honestly, I'm all about health and fitness and have been for a long time (okay, well at least the last 10 years or so).  I would never promote something that I didn't believe was rooted in proper nutrition and safe exercise.  If you are looking for something new, or if this is your very first time getting on the health and fitness bandwagon, this it the program for you!

So far, I have gotten rid of all my usual digestive discomfort and bloating that happens when I'm not eating clean.  I also have an increase in my energy levels and feel stronger already.  Plus I'm down 2 lbs!  What?!?!  We are heading in to week 2 - below you will find my meal plan.  I will need to adjust here and there, but I made notes next to each recipe as to how you adapt it the the Fix.

Have a great week and enjoy this beautiful fall weather!

Happy Cooking!
My fridge is stocked with lunches and snack for the week
Week 41 - October 12, 2014
Sunday - clean eating football foods (recipes to come) 

Monday - Vegetable, Beef, and Bean Chili

Again, tougher to measure, but I would venture to guess that 3 cups is 1 green, 1 red, 1 purple (tomato sauce), and 1 yellow…add one blue if you top with cheese and avocado

Tuesday - Baked Turkey Meatballs and Sauce

measure out 1 yellow (whole wheat pasta), 1 red (meatballs) and 1 purple (sauce).  Eat with a side of sautéed green, salad, or steamed broccoli to round out your meal. 

Wednesday - Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Snap Peas and Edamame

1 red, ½-1 green, 1 yellow, 1 tsp (you may need to add more veggies on the side, or more veggies to your stir-fry)

Thursday - Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

I like to eat mine as a bowl with lettuce, some brown rice, some beans (my kids love to eat rice & beans for dinner, so its works for us).  Measure out 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green – 1 blue if you add cheese and avocado, part of a purple with some salsa or pico de gallo .  Be sure to count 1 tsp (as some olive oil was used in baking the chcken – use cooking spray and you don’t have to count a tsp)

Friday - Homemade pizza (either with whole wheat bagels or English muffins) and salad

Saturday - Greek Chicken with Lemon Potatoes

I served mine with roasted brussel sprouts.  Measure out 1 red (chicken), 1 yellow (potatoes), ½ cup of tomato, olive, feta mixture counts as 1 blue  and a little bit of a green…add your serving of brussel sprouts or other veggie and you have 1 green J
