21 Day Fix Target Meal Plan
Of all the stores in the world, if I had to choose only ONE that fits my needs on almost everything, it would have to be Target. They’ve got all my household needs covered, cute clothes, seasonal fun stuff and even GROCERIES. Their prices and reasonable and with my REDcard I save an extra 5%. So, it stands to reason I do a lot of my meal plan shopping there.
All of these meals are SUPER-easy and quick. Not much skill or time required. I’m incorporating Target’s Simply Balanced products as well as some of the Archer Farms convenience items. If you have time to cook your own versions – great! You will save money that way. I also have to share my own personal disclaimers here.
- My plan is based on the 1500-1799 bracket. If I do extra exercise, I add in more food – approximately one bracket up for each 1/2 hour.
- The shopping list assumes that you have basic pantry staples and spices
- If you want to save money, get dried quinoa and farro. I like the Simply Balanced microwavable packs because they’re ready in just minutes. Shop accordingly.
- I am not 100% “perfect” when it comes to counting containers. If I miss the mark by 1/2 container here and there, I still consider the day a success. I use the 21 Day Fix meal plan as a guideline, not an absolute.
- Please tweak quantities according to your own family’s needs. My menu plan assumes I am the only one eating during the day, but making family dinners. My kids are busy teenagers and often away from home, so my shopping list only has enough for me during the day and 2-3 at night.
- I use a lot of almond milk in my shakes and oatmeal. I consider it a “freebie” and don’t count it.
- I incorporate leftovers as often as I can for the sake of convenience.
- I also will allow myself a few convenience items here and there. I do my best and I still get GREAT results. I want you to have that same mindset. Don’t overcomplicate matters… it’s better to do your best and STICK to a plan than try to be perfect and fail.
- You will notice I have a couple flexible meals designed to use up leftovers. How much you will have left over depends on who in your family is eating and what you have in the fridge you need to use.
- A couple of my days include one fewer purple and one additional green. It is my believe that it’s always OK to substitute a purple for a green; as most veggies are just as much if not more nutrient-dense than fruits and lower on the glycemic index.
