The 21 Day Fix is an amazing nutrition plan that I used to first start losing the baby weight after my third baby was born. It taught me about portion control, what to eat, and when to eat it. I was NEVER hungry and I was able to keep a good milk supply for my now 8 month baby (who is still almost exclusively breastfed). The program is about eating MORE of the right foods. There is no calorie counting or anything like that. The best part is that it’s on sale this month {January}!

One problem some people have on the 21 Day Fix is meal prep. The program is pretty easy, but it DOES take some planning. One way to make the planning a little easier, especially for the working folk, is to have some crock pot meals on the menu!

You’d be surprised how many meals I found that say they are 21 Day Fix approved that actually aren’t! I was able to come up with a list of 10 that, as far as I can tell, meet all the qualifications to be 21 Day Fix approved.

    On the mashed cauliflower it calls for ghee or butter. Since Ghee and Butter are not 21 Day Fix Approved what do you use to replace it? Or have you tried something in place of it?

      I usually substitute a little coconut oil in it's place, although I haven't done it in that particular recipe. I must have over looked that ingredient when creating that list.

    Love the whole chicken and/or turkey breast in the crock pot. It's so easy, and leftovers can be thrown on a salad.

    Is it one bell pepper or two?

    • amouseinmykitchen July 15, 2015 at 9:04 am - Reply

      One I believe.

    For the Slow Cooker Beef Roast and Carrot Recipe, what containers does it equate too ? thanks!

      You can use coconut oil, but in such small amounts, it really won't make a huge difference.

    That cauliflower is the worst EVER! To say it tastes just like mashed potatoes is insane. I recommend to anyone NOT to make it. $8.00 down the disposal. I'm sorry to be so harsh, but come on now.

      I'm so sorry you did't like it! Maybe some different seasoning would have helped you like it more?

        I just made shrimp and grits last night. I used cauliflower in place of actual grits. Turned out fabulous, my husband even liked it. And that's saying a lot. I can't wait to use the cauliflower to make mashed potatoes!
        I think the perception that substitutions are going to taste exactly like the 'real' thing is a bit unrealistic.

          yay! I'm so glad you liked it!

    I noticed that you were breastfeeding. Are you also doing the shakes with your 21 day fix? I need to make sure it's ok for the baby. He is almost 5 months old and exclusively breastfed.

    Hello! I stumbled upon your website yesterday while looking for 21 day fix alternatives and guidelines. Your site is very informative -thank you! I am planning to get started on the program and I am in process of creating my shopping list and meal planning. However, I got confused with how much is my target calorie per day because I am still breastfeeding my 6 month old son. If I used the formula provided by the program my target calorie is 1355 and if I use the breastfeeding calorie calculator (inputting my age, weight and exercise level to everyday ff the program) my suggested calorie is 2377/day. I just want to make sure that I'm following the right diet plan as I don't want to compromise my milk supply. I hope you can help me figure this out. Looking forward to hear back from you. Thank you so much!

      Hey Charlene!

      When breastfeeding, you will want to increase your calories to the next level. So whatever bracket you're at, up it to the next one.

      A few things to do to make sure that you don't lose your milk supply are get in plenty of water, and I recommend some mamas to add an extra yellow in the form of oatmeal and don't count it. Drinking mother's milk tea each day can help too!

      I would love to help you out with accountability! Feel free to email me at corp8292@gmail.com if you want in my November group!

    Yes! I am not nursing anymore, but the shakes are 100% okay for nursing. My supply was better with this third baby than the other two (when I wasn't drinking shakes).

    Feel free to email me at corp8292@gmail.com if you want accountability with this program! I'd love to help you!

      Shakeo is not OK while pregnant or nursing. This into was provided by a BB expert on the message board. The supplements have not nerm tested on infants, children and the unborn.

      • amouseinmykitchen February 20, 2017 at 8:43 pm - Reply

        Thanks for the info. I actually had it approved by my doctor when I was pregnant, and I researched each ingredient myself and felt comfortable using it.

    The Banana crock pot oatmeal sounds delicious but for the 21 day fix program what are the container calculations?

  11. Shannon November 7, 2015 at 6:27 am - Reply

    To get the amount you are supposed to eat on 21 day fix, you make the meal and then fill the containers? I'm not sure how to make the full recipe and then measure it out for correct amountil to eat.

    • amouseinmykitchen November 7, 2015 at 10:43 am - Reply

      What I do is figure out how many containers are in the whole recipe, and then divide the number of containers by how many servings are in the meal.

      So if a recipe has 4 greens, 2 reds, and 2 yellows, and I eat a fourth of it, I would count one green, 1/2 red, and 1/2 yellow.

      Does that make sense?

  12. Shannon November 9, 2015 at 5:07 am - Reply

    Yes, it does. Thank you!!

    for the stuffed bell peppers there is no yellow container calculation for the rice–would you know the breakdown? thanks!

    • amouseinmykitchen July 20, 2016 at 4:11 pm - Reply

      I would probably just count it as one yellow!

    Hi! I love the stuffed pepper recipe! I've made several times now I don't even need to look up recipe:) but this time I'm doing 21 day fix. So my question is, you have down as 1 green, 1 red and 1 blue but what about the rice?? Would that be one yellow??

    • amouseinmykitchen July 20, 2016 at 4:08 pm - Reply

      Sorry for the delayed response! Yes, the rice would be a yellow!
