PiYo Meals and Recipes


After starting Chalene Johnson’s new PiYo workout I thought it would be beneficial to write a post about the nutrition component since that is what most of us struggle with when trying to achieve our fitness goals.  So, this post is all about PiYo Meals and Recipes!

PiYo MEALS and RECIPES: The Nutrition Guide



When you purchase your PiYo Challenge Pack, you will receive Chalene Johnson’s nutrition guide which breaks down your caloric needs (based on your goals) and puts you into 1 of 4 different calorie brackets.  It breaks down each bracket into 5 distinct categories of food and portions: 


(Broccoli, Tomatoes, Sweet Peppers, Carrots, Cucumbers, Onions, etc.)


(Sweet Potato, Quinoa, Brown Rice, Corn, Oatmeal, Bread, Pasta, etc.)


(Blueberris, Strawberries, Banana, Orange, Apple, Grapes, Nectarines, etc.)


(Eggs, Chicken, Greek Yogurt, Tofu, Cottage Cheese, Turkey Bacon, Milk, etc.)


(Avocado, Nuts, Oil, Flaxseed, Seed Butters, Hummus, Cheese, etc.)


(Vinegars, Mustard, Herbs, Spices, etc.)



From there, you will use your lis of approved (clean) foods to build your PiYo Meals and Recipes around. The nutrition guide doesn’t come with any recipes but the approach is simple and easy to follow.  You take your specific calorie range and the appropriate portions of each food group and divide that across your day into 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. 

To make this super SIMPLE for my members, I have created an *EXCLUSIVE* bonus guide that has a pre-made meal plan template that you can use to create your plan each week. 

“A goal without a plan is just a wish!”


I use this template to create my plan each week.  For me, it is easiest to have Shakeology as my breakfast which I count as a protein and PB2 which I count as a Healthy Fat.  Then I move onto my snacks since those are usually 1-3 ingredients.  I typically repeat those multiple times throughout the week (ie. I will have hard boiled eggs M-W and Oatmeal Th-Sun as a morning snack).  

Doing this leaves me with a good idea of what I have left in each food group to make some of the bigger meals.   So, once I have those out of the way, I can start constructing recipes  for lunch and dinner.
