21 Day Fix – Day 4

The Workout: Pilates Fix

Today is an “active recovery day”, which means you begin this pilates workout thinking it’s going to be a breeze and then discover you are so very wrong. Get ready to sweat! Pilates is amazing because it’s meant to lengthen your muscles, so your focus is entirely on stretching and breathing. The entire time your core is engaged, and I used some muscles in my legs and butt that I didn’t even know were there. I really enjoyed it and look forward to the Yoga Fix workout later this week!

The Meals

Breakfast

Day 4 Breakfast
2 eggs (1 red), 1 slice of toast (1 yellow)

Lunch

21 Day Fix - Chicken Chimichanga Lunch
21 Day Fix - Chicken Chimichanga Lunch

Whole grain tortilla (1 yellow), shredded chicken (1 red), cheese (1 blue), red peppers, onions, salsa (1/2 green), plain Greek yogurt (1/2 red)

Look at this mess of deliciousness right here. I strayed from my meal plan again because I still had leftover chicken from the tacos that I wanted to use up, so I created this incredible baked chimichanga filled with perfection. I diced some red pepper and onion, sauteed it in some water, and then added the chicken. Next I added that and the cheese to the tortilla, rolled it all up, and sprayed it with some cooking spray before putting it in the oven on “broil” until the tortilla was browned. I topped it with salsa, fresh cilantro, and a sauce of plain Greek yogurt, a tiny bit of chicken stock, and an absurd amount of chili powder. It’s amazing I can indulge on something this hearty for lunch and not feel guilty about it!

Snack #1

Day 4 Snack 1
1 banana (1 purple) and 2 tsp peanut butter

Dinner

21 Day Fix - Day 4 Steak Dinner
Steak (1 red), salad (1 green), Balsamic dressing (1 orange), broccoli (1 green)

This absolutely amazing dinner took a whopping 10 whole minutes to make. I seasoned the steak with some all purpose steak seasoning, reheated some leftover roasted broccoli, threw together a salad and… BAM!… dinner is served. Now there’s some fast food for ya.

Snack #2


Healthy Cheesecake (3/4 red container per serving)

So I had some extra red containers remaining at the end of the day, so I though what better way to use them but by MAKING CHEESECAKE!! Yup, you read that correctly. This 21 Day Fix Approved Cheesecake is 3 red containers for the entire thing. You’re welcome.

  1. Hi Desiree, I bake my chicken at 400 for 15-20 minutes, let it rest for a few minutes, and then shred it with forks. You can also put frozen chicken breasts in the slow cooker with a bit of chicken broth on low for 8 hours or high for 4. Take them out and shred with a fork. I also like to season the chicken, in this case I used the Fix’s Southwest Seasoning mix. Hope this helps!

  2. Chelsea, there is no crust in this recipe, but I’m sure you could find a healthy pie crust recipe to use! Typically cheesecakes have a graham cracker crust, which aren’t Fix-approved, but I quickly did a search and this one would be: http://www.helynskitchen.com/2013/09/2-ingredient-pie-crust-vegan-grain-free.html It uses almond flour and flax meal… and I would throw in a little cinnamon, teeeeeeny bit of maple syrup, and maybe some honey to give it that graham cracker flavor.

  3. What did you use as a crust for the cheescake, or is there not one? Thanks! 🙂
