ALDI 21 Day Fix menu plans and grocery list

ALDI Meal Plan – 21 Day Fix SUMMER EDITION

If you’re like me, you want to eat healthy and yet you want to stay on budget. It’s important to plan ahead and not waste food. I put the meal plan together based on items I’ve purchased at ALDI. A new ALDI store recently opened where I live and I was surprised to find such a great variety of produce and slash my grocery bill at the same time.

21 Day Fix Meal Plan – Shopping at ALDI

The meal plan and grocery list are based on the 21 Day Fix Meal plan and use the 1,500-1,799 calorie bracket as a guideline. A few key things about the meal plan:

  • You can easily adjust for a different calorie bracket by adding or subtracting containers.
  • You can easily adapt this menu plan for a family. I plan on buying extra of all of the dinner items and that works out well to serve more than one person.
  • I’ve incorporated leftovers in most lunches. I hate to see good, healthy food go to waste so I will be bringing leftovers to work.
  • If you happen to find a really good deal on berries, they’re easy to freeze. Read Freezing Summer Berries. This is also a great tip if you find some great berries at a Farmer’s Market. Our raspberry patch is starting to produce, so I will be freezing our raspberries.
  • To really succeed, I recommend the 21 Day Fix workouts. They’re also on special in July. Message me for info or use these links:)If you’re interested in the 21 Day Fix program, please fill out my contact form or use this link.

21 Day Fix Tips

Success on the 21 Day Fix

The 21 Day Fix is a great way to learn proper portion sizes and what you should be eating. I remember in high school when it was the Basic Four Food Groups. I would eat almost an entire loaf of bread in one day because I thought that was good for me. Crazy, right? Now I know better:) And even though I know better, I still need help getting the right portions. Just this weekend, I visited my grandmother in the hospital and it was really difficult eating healthy but I always have the portion-control containers in my mind, so that helps. Green = vegetables. Okay, I can get vegetable soup in the hospital cafeteria. Purple = fruit, that means I can get a serving of fresh-cut fruit. Yellow = quinoa and in the 21 day fix, I learned that quinoa is a healthier choice than white rice. I am a firm believer in progress, not perfection. I hope the tips below will help you on your journey:) Please send me a message if they do!

What is a challenge pack?

22 minute Hard Corps challenge pack

22 minute Hard Corps challenge pack

A beachbody challenge pack is your first step towards health and nutrition success. This is how I was first introduced to the beachbody workouts and shakeology and a year and a half later, I’m still hooked! Plus, I lost 5 lbs when I started and it has stayed off, even periods of time where I didn’t work out but kept drinking Shakeology.

A challenge pack includes:

  • Your first 30 days of the superfood meal replacement Shakeology
  • Workout program such as 21 Day Fix, the Master’s Hammer and Chisel, p90X, Insanity, Turbofire, Chalean Extreme, the new Hard Corps program – lots of options to find one that is perfect for you. Just send me a note if you have questions.
  • One thing to know is that ordering through a coach, like me:) will usually mean you’re getting one additional free DVD. For instance, with the new Master’s Hammer and Chisel program, when ordering through a coach you get an additional cardio DVD free.
  • Most of the programs are available as streaming as well as the DVDs. So, once you order, you don’t have to wait for the DVDs to arrive in the mail but you can start right away via streaming – BeachBody On Demand.
  • If you’re already using Shakeology, some challenge packs offer the option of the Performance Challenge Pack which includes: Beachbody Performance Energize Pre–Workout supplement and Beachbody Performance Recover Post-Workout supplement.

 

  • 30 days of group accountability to keep you on track!
  • 1:1 support
  • Daily check-ins
  • Tips & ideas to help you on your journey

Send me a message if you’re curious about joining a group or wondering which fitness program might work best for you! Be sure to make me your coach when you use the links below so that you can join the group!

Cafe Latte Shakeology – AAAAAAHmazing

This recipe uses the new Cafe Latte Shakeology and is so good! I tried some of the recipes that were recommended, but they weren’t quite what I was looking for. This recipe incorporates chilled coffee, almond milk, cinnamon and almond extract – YUM!

This recipe uses the new Cafe Latte Shakeology and is so good! I tried some of the recipes that were recommended, but they weren’t quite what I was looking for. This recipe incorporates chilled coffee, almond milk, cinnamon and almond extract – YUM!

What’s a coffee lover to do? Cafe Latte recipes abound! So, I took my favorites and made this combination:

Cinnamon Almond Coffee Latte Shakeology

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1 scoop Café Latte Shakeology
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. pure almond extract
1 cup ice – I only used 3 large cubes, which was perfect for me

For the best taste experience, use a blender and add ice. The more ice, the thicker it gets. Feel free to use any kind of milk or milk substitute (almond, rice, or coconut milk)—the more milk, the creamier it gets! Enjoy!

Frugal Fix – Challenge Group

Rich and delightful, low-sugar chocolate breakfast bars

21 Day fix approved chocolate bars made with Shakeology!

21 Day fix approved chocolate bars made with Shakeology!

Wow, I just tried this recipe last weekend. I admit, I looked at the ingredients and thought, What’s so great about this recipe? Low-sugar chocolate breakfast bars? Seriously?! But for those of you on the 21 Day Fix program, these are so approved.

2 cups oats (quick & old-fashioned)
1/2 c. walnuts (chopped)
4 scoops of shakeology (chocolate, for sure)
1 c. almond milk (unsweetened silly – don’t sneak any sugar in!)
1/2 c. peanut butter

They are my #newfavorite! So yummy – I enjoy them with black coffee, so there’s no guilt.

How-to?
Mix the dry ingredients. Then add the sticky stuff and VOILA!
Press them into a square pan (prepped with non-stick spray)
Refrigerate. Cut into bars and enjoy. In moderation. Which may be hard to do.
