9 Easy Meals for 21 Day Fix

I have completed 2 rounds of 21 Day Fix Extreme, technically 1 because the first time I could not stick with the diet to save my life. I complained a lot in this post about how expensive and time consuming the diet was because I just wanted something easy.

Thinking of starting 21 Day Fix Extreme? Check out my previous post!

 The second round I decided to simplify everything to make it easier on me and my wallet. I don't mind eating the same things over and over as long as it is good. A majority of people on these types of diet meal prep for the week, or at least a few days. I have tried that and it is helpful but I don't always have the time or energy for that. Most times whatever I eat for dinner will have enough leftovers for lunch the next couple of days.
Below are 9 of my favorite meals that are quick and easy 21 Day Fix approved meals.
This may look like a bowl of carbs, but it is WAY healthier than that!
This bowl includes:
  • chicken
  • cauliflower rice
  • lima beans
I used frozen shredded chicken, so all you do is throw in in the pan with a little olive oil and whatever seasonings you would like. I then added the cauliflower rice (also frozen) and about 2 tablespoons on lima beans from the can. You can sub the lima beans for another veggie. Either way you won't be disappointed with this!
PIZZA! What is a diet without guilt-free pizza? This is 1 carb friendly tortilla with sugar free pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and regular pepperonis. I make mine in my toaster over for convenience.
I have this almost every morning because it is just so easy and I love it with my coffee. 1 slice of whole wheat toast, 4 strips of turkey bacon and 1 banana. I don't always have the banana, but I added it because it was going to be a busy day of running around.

Cesar salad, hold the croutons. But that's the best part! I know, it totally is but this is just as good! Romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and a tablespoon of 21 day fix friendly dressing. Add a protein or have it with a protein shake.

Tilapia, brown rice and squash. I am from Pensacola, FL close to the beach and I have never been a seafood fan. My hubby got me liking tilapia because of how he cooked it so this has become an easy go to option for me. Heat up olive oil in the pan, season the tilapia with a salt-free lemon pepper seasoning and cook to your liking. The squash in this picture was AMAZING. Cut squash and place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and a little bit of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Bake until browned at 350 degrees. So, so good!

Similar to my other option with turkey bacon, this one has broccoli "tots" instead of toast in case you want to save your carb option for another meal. These broccoli tots are from the frozen section at Wal Mart, highly recommend.

Turkey meatloaf muffins are everything! I could eat these all day, err day haha! I topped these with just a sprinkle of French fried onions, probably not the best option, but I don't like ketchup or sauce on mine. The "potatoes" pictured are actually cauliflower mash from the frozen section. I want to love these, but they are an acquired taste. Really good if you are craving real mashed potatoes. Collar greens are my veggie in this dish, but I do green beans a lot too.
Spaghetti squash noodles and chicken with spinach. I ate on this for what seemed like 4 days! Cut up chicken seasoned to your preference with spinach mixed in and a little parmesan cheese. Preparing the spaghetti squash is pretty easy, but it does take a little while, so make sure you have time for this one. You can do a quick search on Pinterest to see how people cook their spaghetti squash.
