Vegan 21 Day Fix Meal Plan Ideas
Today I want to talk to vegans about some vegan 21 Day Fix meal plan ideas and pass along some valuable resources to help be successful on this program.
I’ll start with a disclaimer—I am NOT a vegan. I prefer animal protein, but I enjoy ALL good food including vegan meals. Every so often, I have a vegan customer ask me how to do the Portion Fix/21 Day Fix so I want to cover this important topic.
Can Vegans Do the 21 Day Fix?
YES, if you’re a vegan, you can absolutely do the 21 Day Fix!
At first glance, you might get discouraged. If you look at all the options for the red container in the regular 21 Day Fix Eating Plan, you will see that there are only several that are vegan—tempeh, tofu (firm), vegan protein powders, veggie burgers, and vegan Shakeology.
But, guess what? There is a vegan version of Portion Fix/21 Day Fix! Fix creator Autumn Calabrese created a modified version of the regular Fix Eating Plan just for vegans.
In the vegan version of the Portion Fix/21 Day Fix eating plan, animal products are replaced by other complete proteins, such as beans and other legumes, and the yellow container is split into two groups—Yellow A for whole grains and Yellow B for tubers and additional processed grains (pastas and breads).

Vegan Shakeology is a Must!
In my opinion, drinking Shakeology is a must if you're a vegan doing the Fix, because it is FAR more than just a protein powder.
Shakeology is a meal replacement shake that has been found in clinical trials to reduce your appetite by more than 50%. It will literally be the healthiest meal of the day for vegans and non-vegans alike, but I think it's especially important for vegans doing the Fix.

Vegan 21 Day Fix Tips
A few tips for any vegans doing Portion Fix/ 21 Day Fix:
- Follow the Fix Vegan Eating Plan
- Work with a vegan Beachbody Coach (I have an amazing one! Message me if you'd like me to connect you with her.)
- Do your workouts regularly
- Make sure to consume between 1200 and 1500 calories per day
- Get Missy Costello’s awesome vegan cookbook—Karma Chow (Missy is a vegan chef who used to cook for Tony Horton, the creator of the P90X workouts!)
- Head to your local library and check out some vegan cookbooks or snap pics from their magazines for FREE (once you get familiar with the 21 Day Fix, it's easy to deconstruct meals and make them Fix-compliant!)
A 21 Day Fix Vegan Recipe
For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m a Thai food fanatic. Here is my vegan-friendly Thai Lettuce Wraps recipe:
I use a red onion, a cucumber, several sunburst tomatoes, tempeh, lime juice, Bragg’s amino acids, and romaine lettuce. I like to add a bit of spice using either cayenne or red pepper powder. However, if you are not a fan of spicy food, you can skip this part. (You can use soy sauce instead of Bragg’s, but I like to stick with the healthier option).
First, crumble up the tempeh and marinate it in the Bragg's and lime juice. (I don't use exact measurements—just use your taste buds as your guide!)
Next, chop the veggies and make the vegetable medley mix of red onions, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
After the tempeh has marinated for awhile, mix it with the veggies and spoon the mixture into the lettuce leaves of your choice.
