Here's the scoop on the much anticipated 21 Day Fix Fixate Cookbook!
“When it comes to being healthy and fit, it’s not just about what you do in the GYM, it’s really about what you do in the KITCHEN.” Autumn Calabrese
Do you ever feel overwhelmed planning tasty, simple recipes that the whole family will enjoy?
Do you want to eat according to your fitness goals but dread hours prepping meals or chopping veggies?
Do you just want a delicious dinner on the table without a scavenger hunt for special ingredients?
If so, get ready for FIXATE: 101 My August Boot Camp which will feature meal plans that include recipes from Fixate along with sample daily menus, over 50 snack ideas, personal recipes I created to use with the 21 Day Fix and much more!
Oh yeah, Beachbody Celebrity Trainer (and busy working mom) Autumn Calabrese to the rescue.
FIXATE is a brand new cookbook (coming July 14, 2015) designed to work with the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme eating plans. There are 101 recipes (many of Autumn’s family favorites) and each recipe lists color-coded container equivalents and nutrition facts.
You’ll find breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes, yummy snacks, Shakeology recipes and even Fix-approved cocktails. Yay for a healthy happy hour! And, as someone who eats gluten-free, I was thrilled to hear that there is an entire section of gluten-free desserts!
The cookbook will provide you with everything you need in the kitchen to nourish your body well, so you have the energy to rock your workouts.
Who needs this cookbook?
Totally my readers – super busy people who want to be healthy without diet or fitness becoming a part-time job.
FIXATE is for anyone who:
- wants to eat clean
- is new to eating healthy
- needs a little help with portion control
- wants easy-to-follow recipes
- loves great tasting food
- is a vegetarian or vegan
- eats gluten-free
- needs help with meal planning
- is tired of eating the same meals over and over
- wants to feed their families well
- follows a paleo diet
- does not want to spend hours in the kitchen.
How will the FIXATE cookbook simplify your life?
I love eating fresh, delicious, food, but I’ll confess – I don’t like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I can cook, I just choose to spend my time doing activities I find more appealing, like playing guitar or playing on Facebook.
Autumn promises the recipes in FIXATE are:
- don’t require hours in the kitchen
- use simple ingredients found in any grocery store, and
- don’t require gourmet cooking utensils or gadgets.
Autumn shares her personal tips for preparing meals quickly and easily.
She’ll also help you organize your pantry and (I’m pretty sure she was thinking specifically of me) how to upgrade leftovers. I am all about planned leftovers to make lunches quick & simple.
“We’ve really tackled all the tough topics that make meal prepping and staying on track sometimes a little bit hard,” says Autumn. “Hopefully we’ve made it a little bit easier.”
Why do we need a cookbook?
There are lots of 21 Day Fix recipes floating around (and the Team Beachbody Blog is a great source), but the cookbook was created in response to a demand for more recipes.
We needed to give people “more options for using the containers. It can get a little tricky at times, so I think 101 new recipes will sort of reinvigorate everybody to get back at it, especially at the start of summer,” says Autumn.
I love the idea of planning my weekly meals from a cookbook that is specially designed to go with the portion-control program I follow. I am all about quick and simple, and the FIXATE cookbook will be a great tool to pull together meals in a snap that keep me on track AND my family will enjoy as well.
FIXATE helps with portion control.
When you plan meals using FIXATE recipes, you’re not just enjoying healthy meals, you’re eating the right amount. And portion control is critical. We’ve all known overweight vegans and chubby peepse following paleo eating plans. I’ve been in that camp myself, so no judgment.
FIXATE includes gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and paleo recipes.
“We’re getting asked a lot for vegetarian recipes and I don’t want to neglect anybody with the cookbook, so let’s dive into vegan recipes, let’s get the vegetarian recipes, and the paleo recipes, plus an entire section of gluten free desserts,” says Autumn.
Sounds good to me.
FIXATE has kid-friendly recipes.
“They’re amazingly delicious, phenomenal recipes,” claims Autumn. “I wouldn’t put them in if I wouldn’t eat them, my 6 year old son eats them. I’m excited about it, I’m proud of it. I think we covered the whole spectrum with 101 recipes in the book. There’s something for everybody in there.”
FIXATE is designed for the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme.
Each of the 101 recipes has the color-coded portion control containers listed. This makes it super simple to stick to your Fix plan. Following the recipes will automatically track your portions so you are eating the right amount for your body.
But, the FIXATE Cookbook works for all Beachbody programs AND just for healthy eating in general.
You don’t need to follow the 21 Day Fix plan to enjoy simple, clean eating. Recipes in FIXATE use whole, real foods found in any grocery store. You’ll have meals crafted using lean protein, fresh veggies, fruits and healthy fats.
No icky, fat-free concoctions; no weird diet foods or ingredients. Everyone can benefit from nourishing their body with wholesome, real food.
“I’ve also included all the nutritional information for each recipe so anyone on any program can use this cookbook and be totally sure that they’re enjoying tasty, healthy and well-balanced meals.”
FIXATE is a supplement to the 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme meal plans.
The FIXATE cookbook is not meant to replace the eating plans that come with the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme programs. FIXATE will include the food lists, but refer to the Eating Plans that came with your program to calculate the number of containers to eat each day.
When and where can I get FIXATE and how much does it cost?
FIXATE will be available to purchase from Team Beachbody on July 14, 2015.
