Maybe you are doing this program alone or maybe you have a partner in crime… one thing is for certain you need a 21 Day Fix Extreme shopping list! More specifically a shopping list that breaks down the quantity of containers that some of these staple foods contain especially if you are doing the Countdown to Competition plan.
I like purchasing in bulk and prepping in bulk. It just works for us. We keep things SIMPLE and rinse and repeat as much as possible. So, when you are doing the countdown to competition plan and collectively eating stacks of chicken, eggs, and turkey meat as laid out in your meal plan, its nice to know how much to purchase when you go out shopping.
So, I put together a few notes and photos to show you some of the comparable quantities.
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: EGG WHITES
Lets start with the infamous EGG WHITES. This is the hardest one for people to grasp and I think its because the thought of eating 8 egg whites is crazy! Here are your equivalents:
A dozen of Eggs = 6 reds (2 whole eggs = 1 red)
2-3 hard boiled eggs with the yolk removed = 1 red (just depends on the size of eggs you purchase. I stuff it in a red container and count that.)
1.5 cups of LIQUID eggs whites = 1 red (Double check your container. It should have an equivalents chart.)
1 – 16oz container of liquid egg whites = 1.5 reds
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: CHICKEN TENDERLOINS
I find prepping (washing & trimming) is cut down significantly when using chicken tenderloins. I get these 1 lb. packs from our grocery store and they work for us.
1 pack = about 3 reds
3 tenderloins = 1 red
4.5oz of chopped chicken = 1 red
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: GROUND TURKEY MEAT
This one is easier.
1 pack (1.25lb) of ground turkey meat = 5 reds
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: SHAKEOLOGY
1 Shakeology = 1 Red
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: GREEN BEANS
20 Green Beans = 1 Green
1 (10oz) pack of Green Beans = 3 Green
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: BROCCOLI
1 (16oz) pack of Frozen Broccoli = 4 Green
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: CUCUMBER
1 large Cucumber = 2 Green
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: SWEET PEPPERS
1 Sweet Pepper = 1 Green
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: SWEET POTATOES
1 (32oz) bag of Cubed Fresh Sweet Pototoes = 6 yellows (when cooked)
21 Day Fix Extreme Shopping List: AVOCADO
The best news I heard when we did the Coach Test Group was that we could replace our tsps for Avocado on the Competition Plan! Then, I heard it was a 1:1 ratio too.
I hope that helps! I know for us it was really hard trying to figure out the quantities on the Countdown to Competition meal plan because I was in the lowest bracket and Tommie was in the highest. Combined it was a WHOLE LOT OF FOOD!
I’ll add more as I have them!
