We’ve come up with a few unique recipe ideas that will take your hot dogs to the next level.Read More
Here is what's cookin' these days...
All the hip, healthy kids are eating chia seeds these days. It’s no wonder why, as chia seeds have been named one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They are low in calories, high in fiber, rich in antioxidants, and full of protein. We’re only going to eat them if they taste fantastic and this dish is a winner.
This chia seed pudding is perfect for a make-ahead nutritional breakfast. It is also so yummy that you can make this for a light dessert, as well! (We’ll opt to do both)!Read More
We’re pretty sure that truffle oil makes everything better: French fries, pizza, and now you can add deviled eggs to that list. If you are looking for an upscale appetizer that is sure to wow your guests, this is the recipe for you.Read More
I've been making this recipe for years. We were super excited to learn that this recipe is 21 day fix approved as-is! The cottage cheese filling makes this casserole seem like a lasagna, but it is low calorie and low carb. This is also one of my favorite recipes because it reheats really easy so it is perfect to bring to work as a healthy, yet satisfying meal.
One slice counts as 2 green, 1/2 red, and 1 blue container.Read More
One of the easiest ways to use leftovers and to get your veggies in during the morning is by making a frittata. These look fancy, but once you try and make one at home you’ll see how simple they are to make! You can use any combination of flavors you like and can make a frittata for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Additionally, the leftovers are easy to reheat for a quick meal on the go.
Here is our recipe for our zucchini and onion frittata. This counts as 1 green and 1 red container on the 21 day fix.Read More
We love eggs. I mean we reaaaally love eggs. But after having eggs for so many days in a row as part of the 21 day fix, we needed a changeup. We’ve always been curious about flourless pancakes, so we decided it was the perfect time to try them out.
This recipe is nice because each serving makes 3-4 pancakes per person and it only counts for 1 purple, 1 yellow, and 1 red. If you add on our berry sauce it accounts for another ½ of a purple container.Read More
You don’t have to be an expert to make dishes from your favorite sushi restaurant at home. This Salmon Poke recipe is fresh, light and a cinch to make. We’ve made this a healthier version by pairing it with brown rice instead of traditional sushi rice to save you the extra sugar. This can also be made by omitting the rice altogether.
While on the 21 day fix program, this was by far our favorite recipe. We often make poke at home for a simple, unique dinner or fun date night at home. Feel free to swap the salmon out for tuna if your heart so desires.
You can buy sushi-grade fish at almost any grocery store in the frozen fish section. Per government regulation, all sushi-grade fish must be sold frozen. Follow the defrosting instructions listed on the packaging.
This recipe serves 2 and counts as 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 blue container and 1 teaspoon on the 21 day fix program.Read More
We’ve had a cauliflower pizza crust recipe pinned forever on our pinterest board and starting our 21 day fix was the perfect excuse to try it out! This was our very first attempt to make the crust. A few weeks earlier, our food processor went on the fritz and went to food processor-heaven. We didn’t get a chance to buy a replacement yet, so we used the cheese grater method for ricing the cauliflower. Note: this made a total mess and cauliflower went EVERYWHERE. Do yourself a favor and be sure to use a food processor for this one, trust us!
Amidst the fact that we had pieces of cauliflower in a 5 foot radius around our kitchen, this turned out really good! You can’t compare it to your favorite pizza place, but we would most definitely make this recipe again (even when we are off our diet)!Read More
This stuffed pepper recipe is one of our favorites while on 21 day fix because 1) It is smothered in cheese! and 2) it is really filling. This recipe counts as 2 green containers, 1 yellow, and 1/2 of a blue container.
Even if you are not on 21 day fix, it is a deliciously healthy meal that is super versatile. The recipe is vegetarian, but feel free to add in whatever meat floats your boat!Read More
We make yogurt from scratch almost every week. Although you can make it with regular old mason jars, we invested in a no-fail yogurt making machine (we use the Dash Yogurt Maker). You are able to make homemade yogurt with any type of milk, even soy or almond milk!Read More
