I’ve decided to pick a theme for this week’s meal plan. I’m using recipes from the Fixate Cooking show, including some new recipes that were just recently added. Check out what is on this week’s Portion Fix menu.
Themed Meal Planning
Picking a theme for your meal plan can make meal planning easier. You can choose a theme for the week or give each day it’s own theme.
Theme week ideas:
- Recipes from a certain cook book
- Sheet pan meals
- Slow cooker meals
- No-cook meals
- In season produce meals
Daily theme ideas:
- Slow Cooker Sunday
- Meatless Monday
- Taco Tuesday
- Pasta Wednesdays
- Instant Pot Thursdays
- Fish Fridays
- Sandwich Saturdays
Choosing a theme narrows down your options and reduces the overwhelming number of recipes out there.
This week I’ve chosen to create my menu with recipes from the Fixate Cooking Show.
Fixate Cooking Show
Super Trainer & Ultimate Portion Fix creator Autumn Calabrese and her brother Chef Bobby Calabrese created the Fixate Cooking Show to help people get creative and enjoy healthy, portion-controlled recipes. There are over 300+ recipes including breakfast, entrees, sides & snacks, salads, desserts and holiday dishes. New recipes are added almost every month.
The Fixate Cooking Show is available through Beachbody On Demand. You can watch videos of the recipe being made as well as download pdf copies of the recipes.
Finding Container Recipes
Finding recipes to fit your containers can be overwhelming. There are so many options.
Sometimes it works best to find a recipe you’d like to try and build your meal plan around that recipe for the day. That way you don’t have to worry about container counts and can plan the rest of your meals for the day with the containers you have left.
If you’re following 80 Day Obsession or Timed Nutrition your containers are already pretty set in place. That’s why I created searchable indexes to help you find Fixate recipes that fit your containers. You can sort based on containers to help you find what you need. Indexes can be found for each Fixate Cookbook in my free resource library.
In this week’s meal planning video I used my Fixate searchable index to find meals to fit my containers.
