21 Day Fix Meal Ideas

21 Day fix meal ideas | The Graues

Are you surfing the web for 21 Day Fix Meal or Food ideas? Well, it’s your lucky day.

In this post we share an example day of eating with the Beachbody Portion Fix Containers… and then give you the opportunity to receive a few weekly menus if you like what you see.

THE most common question we get from the people is “what do you guys eat!?!?!?!!”

Well, for the MOST part we are flexatarians. We enjoy a variety of foods but enjoy LOTS of fresh veggies and fruit, nuts and seeds, legumes, healthy fats and oils, whole grains, fish, eggs. We also eat some lean protein, usually grilled chicken.

We rarely have red meat and we limit dairy (…meaning we don’t eat dairy if we aren’t eating pizza or ice cream). LOL!

To be honest, we could do better with our added sugars.Usually, we keep our portions in check here, but if we get off track during the 21 Day Fix or another program these are usually the culprit.

The picture above is an picture of all the delicious foods that Katie ate just on Day 1 of the 21 Day Fix. You can see, we are about QUALITY of calories that FUEL us…and not about substantially cutting calories on starvation diets.

WHY? They are a terrible temporary solution that DOES NOT WORK. We’d rather fuel our bodies to perform for the long term. This is the approach these awesome people used in getting their results.

Anyhow, here’s what you are looking for:

Breakfast = 2 egg veggie omelet, EVOO, avocado (1 red, 1 green, 1 blue container)

Snack = Greek yogurt & mixed berries (1 red and 1 purple container)

Lunch = Amy’s Organic Bowl (black beans, quinoa, squash, chard) & a chocolate raw vegan protein shake (1 yellow, 1 green and 1 red container)

Snack = watermelon (1 purple container)

Beachbody Coach Success Story | The Graues

Meet Lindsay P.

We first met Lindsay several years ago when she was working at a retail store at the local mall. We have stayed connected through life’s many ups and downs. Through it all, she has always relied on our challenge groups to get her back on track. Let’s get started…

What motivated Lindsay to start her transformation?

“A few years ago I looked in the mirror and realized that I was fat. I hated myself. In that moment I vowed to make a change, to become my best self, both physically and mentally.

I worked my butt off doing Insanity. Since then, I have been living a fit lifestyle and am addicted/determined to getting that workout in 6 days a week.

I stuck to my promise to myself and couldn’t be happier with how this lifestyle change has greatly affected my life.”

What has she enjoyed MOST about her challenge group experience?

“Being part of a challenge group is awesome!! Getting tips and tricks, as well as hearing about others’ struggles is motivating! We don’t have to be alone in the fitness journey! Even though we may be doing different programs, having the support is extremely beneficial!”

What are her results as of today?

“My greatest results came from the first round of Insanity 3 years ago when I lost 20-25 pounds. However with the continued programs, I am more toned and have that beach body!”

What Beachbody Products has she used during her transformation?

“Insanity. Brazil Butt Lift. Les Mills Pump. Insanity Max 30. Shakeology.”

We are so proud of how far you’ve come in your journey mentally and physically Lindsay!

UPDATE: Lindsay has since decided to JOIN OUR TEAM to stay accountable and share her journey with others while earning supplemental income.

Beachbody on Demand Digital Unlocks

beachbody on demand digital unlocks | The Graues

I’m guessing you’ve changed the way you consume home entertainment in the last few years.  Meaning…you don’t “rewind” before you take your movie rental back to the store. If that even happens.

It’s more likely that you’re returning a rented disc to a Redbox Kiosk or perhaps you’re never even leaving the comfort of your home and are renting from your local cable provider, iTunes or Amazon.

That is of course when you’re not watching subscription entertainment from say Hulu or Netflix.

You get the point.

THANKFULLY, we have many new options for consuming home entertainment. But did you know that the same is true for consuming quality, proven in home (or on the go) health and fitness solutions?

Well…it is.

Beachbody, the unquestionable LEADER in in-home fitness, launched Beachbody on Demand in March of 2015. As I’ve covered in this comprehensive Beachbody on Demand review, you can access streaming content from ANYWHERE you have access to WiFi OR a cell signal, WiFi being preferred.

EVEN BETTER is that you can download up to 7 workouts to be viewed  OFFLINE with the Beachbody on Demand iPhone/iPad app (that your Team Beachbody Coach connects you with) in the event you expect limited connectivity.

Click Here to Download our checklist of Top 10 “Must do” workouts in the Beachbody on Demand Member Library.

You can complete your workouts ANYWHERE… be it in your living room, looking over the South rim of the Grand Canyon, in your NYC hotel room or local gym. You can access the content on your phone, tablet, desktop PC, laptop or even on your 60 inch TV with a 4th generation or higher Apple TV device, Roku or Chromecast. There are several options to get connected that best fit your circumstances.

What I wanted to share with you today is the NEXT evolution of Beachbody on Demand that is beginning to pick up speed, too…

Beachbody Coach Success Story | The Graues

Meet Mark and Jill M. – 50K Club Members

As we continue to freshen things up on we feel absolutely compelled to acknowledge a PHENOMENAL leader, Jill M. A few months back Jill and her husband Mark surpassed a cool milestone having joined the diamondELITE 50K Club which means that collectively they’ve earned greater than $50,000 as a Team Beachbody Coach team. 🙂

We came to know Jill several years back when she was working as one of the Physician’s Assistant in the same office as the physician we saw. One fateful day, Jill and Katie recognized each other while crossing paths outside of the office in Old Navy.

Katie was wearing an INSANITY hat and Jill was currently enjoying P90X. A convo was started and a friendship began…one which has brought Jill, her vision and huge heart to our team and allowed Jill to fulfill her purpose while being a stay at home mom.

Why did you CHOOSE to become a Team Beachbody Coach?

“I started coaching because I fell in love with the programs and Shakeology. I began to naturally share with others so it was an obvious transition for me. I was searching for something for ME at the time in my life. Somewhere that I had a purpose along with being a SAHM.

My passion for health and fitness coupled with my desire to be home with the kids made Beachbody the perfect fit.”

How has being a Team Beachbody Coach changed your life?

“I am not the same person I was when I first joined. I am so much more confident in who I am. This has nothing to do with my physical transformation and EVERYTHING to do with me finally believing in myself and the role I serve for others.”

How has the income you’ve earned as a Team Beachbody Coach helped?

“The added income has alleviated stress from my husband who was the sole provider for our family. A weight has been lifted from his shoulders which is hard to even put into words. I have been able to stay at home with our kids which is absolutely WHERE I WANT TO BE.

I want to be here when they get off the bus, to do homework, to drive to activities. And, Continue Reading →
