My favorite thing about the 21 Day Fix EXTREME eating plan is that you get so much food! It really makes it much easier to stay on track. I’m in the 1,800-2,099 calorie bracket on 21 Day Fix EXTREME. Here’s another 5 day meal prep. You can see the original post on the Beachbody Blog.
Breakfast: Shakeology with a banana, flax seeds and 3 tsp. almond butter (1 red, 2 purple, 1 orange, 3 tsp.)

And here is what the groceries look like before I prep them.
Hope this is helpful and good luck on your meal prep journey!
Q: Do you get bored of eating the same thing every day?
A: No at all! I switch it up on a weekly basis and choose my healthy favorites that I don’t mind eating often. I also add different seasonings to keep things interesting. Currently, Flavorgod is my favorite.
Q: Do you pre-cook all your food at the beginning of the week or do you just cut it up and package it? Does the food stay fresh all week?
A: I personally like to pre-cook all my food! I keep it properly refrigerated and find that it stays fresh up to 5 days. If you prefer, you can totally freeze the last 2 days or cook 2-3 days at a time.
Q: Can you put any of these meals in the freezer?
A: I personally don’t but I know people who do but just remember to thaw it in time.
Q: Wait so use the colored containers and dump into the larger ones?
A: The colored containers are from 21 Day Fix/21 Day Fix EXTREME. I use it to help me measure out the proportions of all my food then put it into my black chefland containers for organization and mobility reasons.
