21 Day Fix Grocery List

  Lets face it, it's easy, its simple, its basically fool proof.  If you stick to the things on the list of approved foods and you keep it basic you can't go wrong.  I am not one that likes counting calories, so the fact that I can tally up my containers and check it off each day is much more my style.    
21 Day Fix Tips, 21 Day Fix Grocery List

The thing that I really like is that it perfectly aligns with clean eating!   
21 Day Fix Meals

 I get asked questions all the time about what a grocery list should look like.  While I can't tell you to go out and buy EVERYTHING on this list, I am going to give you an idea of the general things that you are going to be using on a daily basis for the fix.  The quick reference guide below really helps as well.

Proteins

So when you hit up the store stick to lean proteins like
Fish- Salmon & Tilapia
Fresh Chicken Breast
Turkey Breast
Eggs
Lean Ground Turkey
Pork Tenderloin
Flank Steak
Protein Powder
Veggie Burgers

Turkey bacon, lunch meat, and ham all are higher in sodium and can cause you to retain water.  

Fruits 

Apples
Pears
Berries like Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries
Oranges
Watermelon
Cantaloupe
Kiwi


Vegetables

Green Beans
Celery
Asparagus
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Spinach
Peppers
Onions
Tomaos
Squash
cucumbers
Lettuce

I also typically do not eat carrots because they are also higher in sugar.  I stay away from corn as a vegetable and if I eat it then it goes into the starch category.

Complex Carbohydrates 
Brown Rice
Quinoa
Oatmeal (not instant in the packet) Rolled Instant Oats
Sweet Potatoes
Red Skin potatoes
Black Beans
Pinto Beans
Couscous
Ezekiel Bread
Whole Grain Tortillas

I know that on the complex carbohydrate list there are bagels, toast, pancakes, waffles and other breads.  But what I can say is this, from a nutritional standpoint even whole grain still turns to sugar in your stomach, it will not keep you full and offers little benefits.  Think of food as fuel.  Quinoa, sweet potatoes, ezekiel bread are great sources of whole grains that are very natural and will give you fiber, fullness and nutrients where a waffle or piece of toast is more of a filler.  Again, you can pick and choose and yes it is allowed but its up to you to decide how you want your results to play out.

Blue

Unsweetened Coconut
Raw Unsalted Almonds
Raw Unsalted Cashews
Hummus
Goat Cheese
Feta Cheese
Avocado
This is definitely a category that I used to go way over!  I used to eat hummus, almonds and cheese all in one day and it was totally killing my progress.  I actually eliminated cheese from my diet and saw that I was less bloated. 
List of other ingredients that I used frequently:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Coconut Oil
All Natural Peanut Butter, only ingredients are peanuts and a little salt.
Almond Butter
Almond Milk if you want that for your Shakeology
Chia Seeds
Sea Salt
Pepper
Chili Powder
Onion Salt
Garlic Powder
Garlic
Seltzer Water- Love t La Croix if you have a hard time drinking water.
Green Tea
Honey
Greek Yogurt
Cinnamon
Slivered Almonds
