What Can I Put in My 21 Day Fix Containers?
Before they get into the groove of the program, people usually ask me, “What can I put in my 21 Day Fix containers?.” Anything? Everything? Well, I’ll tell you.
I’ll start by letting you know that you cannot fill the containers with junk food and expect to see great results in 21 days. And, by the way, great results aren’t just a few less pounds. At the heart of the 21 Day Fix is the goal of making a permanent lifestyle change—in both nutrition and fitness. To get truly great results, you must follow the plan—and that means eating quality, clean, and healthy foods.
The 21 Day Fix program includes a detailed Nutrition Guide with food lists for each container. You won’t find any junk food in Autumn Calabrese’s food lists or recipes. But, you DO get a lot of options.
This often overwhelms people who are just starting out. They look at the list and get stuck because they don’t know where to start. Read my post on How to Get Started on the 21 Day Fix for a step-by-step guide, which focuses on simplifying the program when you’re just starting out.
One of the most important things I teach my Fixers is how to deconstruct recipes to be Fix-compliant, so you don’t miss your comfort foods quite so much. The key is learning how to swap the crappy foods for healthy foods. For instance, instead of pasta, I use spiralized zucchini.

You can get more meal ideas in my online challenge group (see below), my I Like Monica Koon Facebook page, Pinterest, the library, Autumn’s blog, and Beachbody’s blog. But, PLEASE remember…if you go all gung ho and try to cook all new recipes, you’re likely to burn out. I encourage you to learn how to simplify your 21 Day Fix meal prep by learning how to do buffet style meal prep.
