What is the 21 Day Fix??

21day fix collage

The 21 Day Fix is the newest fitness program on the market, scheduled to be released on February 3rd. It’s a totally unique concept in the fitness world for a few reasons – it’s exercise and nutrition COMBINED into one all inclusive program, you only workout for 30 minutes EACH DAY (!!) and you can see killer results in JUST 21 DAYS. This is virtually unheard of, especially since this is NOT a crash diet or an extreme starvation diet – it’s a sustainable, HEALTHY change and (big shocker!!): YOU CAN STILL HAVE DESSERT!

This rapid weight loss program gives you a nutrition guide with portion controlled containers, a workout program, plus the support and accountability of ME as your coach.

Yes, it’s true – now there is a program that makes losing weight so easy and simple to follow, you’ll never have to diet again! This is the 21 Day Fix, the newest breakthrough from Beachbody.

So what is the 21 Day Fix??

The 21 Day Fix program takes the guesswork out of weight loss. It’s a unique portion-control system combined with easy-to-follow 30 minute workouts that fit into anyone’s busy schedule. Trainer Autumn Calabrese shares her passion for food and fitness as she shows you how to make simple choices that add up to life-changing results.

I can’t even begin to share how stinking excited I am about this!! How many of us FEEL like we are doing everything we can but we just aren’t seeing any changes?? You’re going to the gym 3-5 times a week, you’re working hard than anyone there… you think you are eating healthy, but no results?? IT COULD BE SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS PORTION SIZES… And this program, the complete package, can help you pull it all together and finally see the results you are looking for!

As a top Team Beachbody coach, I got the chance to try this workout live during our annual Leadership conference in Dana Point, CA. I’m not going to beat around the bush… it was HARD. 30 minutes? Should be a piece of cake, right? But I was literally struggling to get through it (in a good way!) and I definitely felt it the next way. This isn’t an easy program… it’s designed to get results. Push through and there is NO WAY you won’t see a change in 21 days.

One truly awesome thing about the workout is the modifications. Every single workout has a modifier, so if you are just starting out on your fitness journey, that’s ok. A beginner CAN do these workouts. And if you are more advanced, you will follow the advanced instructor. Literally EVERYONE can benefit from these workouts. It is a positive and motivating workout and I will be ordering the MINUTE it is released.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the eating guide and I have to say, I have been BLOWN AWAY. It’s so simple, easy-to-follow and the way I feel since I have been following this plan is incredible. I have been eating pretty healthy for a while now, but having these guidelines has made a big difference in my bloating (!!) and in the way I feel. I’m really looking forward to having the actual containers to continue eating this way daily.

Turkey and Zucchini Meatballs

turkey and zucchini meatballs

I discovered these meatballs a few months ago thanks to my friend Rebekah over at The Tasty Olive.  She shared the recipe with me and I tweaked it to make it a little healthier – baking instead of sauteing, a little less oil, and all organic ingredients.  It was a huge hit with my picky kids – they didn’t even notice the zucchini (score!) and ate it right up without a complaint.   Now, I like to make up a huge batch at one time, with different size meatballs, and freeze them so I can use them later in all my favorite meatball recipes – Italian Wedding Soup, Spaghetti, Meatball Sandwiches and sometimes I even just warm them up for the kids for lunch.  Saves me time and I know they are getting a good product without all the additives like the ones I used to buy at the store!  Enjoy!

Ingredients

(I use all organic ingredients unless I can’t find something organic…  but that rarely happens.)

1 lb 93% lean organic ground turkey

1 zucchini, chopped very fine (or pulsed in a food processor)

1T minced garlic

2 slices whole wheat bread

Milk (just enough to wet the bread)

2 ounces fresh grated Parmesan

Himalayan Pink Salt

Fresh ground black pepper

1tsp olive oil (I used basil

Directions

Place bread in a medium bowl.  Moisten the bread with milk, and break apart with your hands (really “smush it up,” as my kids would say.)  Add remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.  Avoid overmixing, as it can create tough meatballs.

Shape meatballs into the size you want them and place on a foil lined baking pan.  Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until cooked through.  Use them right away however you want, or freeze them to use in the future!

I like to use these meatballs in my spaghetti, in Italian Wedding Soup, or just to warm up for the kids for lunch.
