21 Day Fix Grocery List

21 Day Fix Grocery List, Melanie Mitro


I can honestly say that I might be in love with the 21 day fix meal plan!  Well ok I will be totally honest I AM IN LOVE WITH THE ENTIRE PROCESS.  Lets face it, it's easy, its simple, its basically fool proof.  If you stick to the things on the list of approved foods and you keep it basic you can't go wrong.  Plus I really dislike counting calories so the fact that I can tally up my containers and check it off each day is much more my style.  Now 4 rounds into the fix I don't even use the containers anymore.  I can see very clearly what a proper portion size should look like on my plate.  My body really has a much better system of regulating my feelings of fullness and I truly do have energy.  
21 Day Fix Tips, 21 Day Fix Grocery List

The thing that I really like is that it perfectly aligns with clean eating!  I still follow the exact same guide of having a protein an a complex carb at each meal.  
21 Day Fix Meals

So I get asked questions all the time about what a grocery list should look like.  While I can't tell you to go out and buy EVERYTHING on this list, I am going to give you an idea of the general things that you are going to be using on a daily basis for the fix.  The quick reference guide below really helps as well.

Proteins

So when you hit up the store stick to lean proteins like
Fish- Salmon & Tilapia
Fresh Chicken Breast
Turkey Breast
Eggs
Lean Ground Turkey
Pork Tenderloin
Flank Steak
Protein Powder
Veggie Burgers

Honestly I stay away from red meat, processed lunch meats, turkey bacon and ham slices.  I know it's on the list but when it comes to clean eating and nutritional value the things I have listed above are much better options.  Turkey bacon, lunch meat, and ham all are higher in sodium and can cause you to retain water.  

Fruits 

Apples
Pears
Berries like Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries
Oranges
Watermelon
Cantaloupe
Kiwi

I honestly stayed away from bananas, mangos and grapes during the fix because they are still a good source of natural sugar but they also tend to be on the higher side.  So if I do have one of those I only do 1 per day.  As you get closer to your weight loss goal this becomes very important to shedding those last few pesky pounds.

Vegetables

Green Beans
Celery
Asparagus
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Spinach
Peppers
Onions
Tomaos
Squash
cucumbers
Lettuce

I also typically do not eat carrots because they are also higher in sugar.  I stay away from corn as a vegetable and if I eat it then it goes into the starch category.
Complex Carbohydrates 
Brown Rice
Quinoa
Oatmeal (not instant in the packet) Rolled Instant Oats
Sweet Potatoes
Red Skin potatoes
Black Beans
Pinto Beans
Couscous
Ezekiel Bread
Whole Grain Tortillas
I know that on the complex carbohydrate list there are bagels, toast, pancakes, waffles and other breads.  But what I can say is this, from a nutritional standpoint even whole grain still turns to sugar in your stomach, it will not keep you full and offers little benefits.  Think of food as fuel.  Quinoa, sweet potatoes, ezekiel bread are great sources of whole grains that are very natural and will give you fiber, fullness and nutrients where a waffle or piece of toast is more of a filler.  Again, you can pick and choose and yes it is allowed but its up to you to decide how you want your results to play out.
Blue

Unsweetened Coconut
Raw Unsalted Almonds
Raw Unsalted Cashews
Hummus
Goat Cheese
Feta Cheese
Avocado
This is definitely a category that I used to go way over!  I used to eat hummus, almonds and cheese all in one day and it was totally killing my progress.  I actually eliminated cheese from my diet and saw that I was less bloated and more lean during that time.
List of other ingredients that I used frequently:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Coconut Oil
All Natural Peanut Butter, only ingredients are peanuts and a little salt.
Almond Butter
Almond Milk if you want that for your Shakeology
Chia Seeds
Sea Salt
Pepper
Chili Powder
Onion Salt
Garlic Powder
Garlic
Seltzer Water- Love the Deer Park and La Croix if you have a hard time drinking water.
Green Tea
Honey
Greek Yogurt
Cinnamon
Slivered Almonds

Fast Track to Success With Team Beachbody, A Top Coach in the Network



I promise not to share ALL BUSINESS information with you this week but I have some really exciting news that I want to share with everyone that follows my blog! Then I promise that tomorrow I will post my new Clean Eating Meal Plan and share some more fitness tips!  But today I just want to be excited and share with you all my NEWS!!!!

Every month Team Beachbody releases the networks leaderboards for their top producers and top Coaches in the business.  The top 10 is the creme de la creme of Team Beachbody.  Being in the top 10 doesn't mean that you can sell a lot of Fitness Programs or Shakeology, instead it means that you are an incredible leader.  Being a top 10 coach means that you are able to take the process you have created for your own business and duplicate it with your team of coaches and customers.  Being a successful coach means that you are not at the top of the pile and everyone else is below you!  It doesn't mean that you make all the money and everyone else just gets thrown a bone here and there.  What being a successful beachbody coach means is that you live a life where you truly put the needs of others first, you inspire others to dream a little bigger, to imagine the possibilities and to paint a picture of what their life could look like if they achieved it all!  But, instead of just creating a vision what I do is give you the teachable principles, processes and tools to make it happen.  I am not all talk, I am the real deal!  If I say I am going to mentor you, then you bet your bottom dollar that I am going to rock your BUSINESS with you!!!  I am not here to sign up a bunch of coaches on my team and then let you FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF.  We are in this together, we are a team and in my eyes there is no "I" in team!  When you sign up as a coach you are basically saying that you TRUST ME, that you are trusting that I will lead you in the right direction.  Trust me, I can't go to bed at night if I feel I led you astray!  

So this brings me to my team, the DREAM TEAM, the team that makes my cup full, that inspires me, pushes me to be a stronger leader, to grow and to be the best that I can be!  I want to be their fearless leader and their rock!  Because of my commitment to them and their ability to match my pace and effort together we have just EARNED the #1 SPOT in TEAMBEACHBODY!  This means that our team is THE most successful team in the entire company!  This means we are duplicating success throughout the entire organization and we are doing it with heart, soul, trust and passion!  Our team has 5 coaches that are in the top 100 of Team Beachbody. There are over 170,000 coaches in the network! I would say that is a pretty awesome accomplishment.

This is a GREAT honor and achievement!  I have for the last 3 years since I signed up as a coach been committed to helping every single person that I come into contact with.  I do my best to be trustworthy and supportive of their health, fitness and financial goals.  I truly believe that I have attracted some amazing leaders to my team because of my commitment to helping the succeed.  Now they are doing it with their own teams as well!  

On Friday when the Elite Leaderboard was published and I received the EMAIL I literally stood at the bottom of the steps starring at my phone!  I was literally numb with excitement that I DID IT!!!!  I literally and the #1 coach in the entire organization.  I seriously never in a million years imagined this day would happen.  You know there are always those things that you say...."wouldn't it be crazy cool if...."  Well this was one of those things I put out there that would be crazy cool to do!  

The part that I want you to take away today is not that I am the #1 coach, but instead I want you to take away the fact that YOU can do it to!  I want you to know a few things:

1.  I have my Masters Degree in Special Education, my undergraduate degree is Psychology.
2.  I am a stay at home mom from Western Pa.
3.  I have no prior social media or blogging experience.
4.  I am a very motivated person. When I see an opportunity I am driven to accomplish the goal.
5.  I dream REALLY REALLY BIG!  
6.  I love my family, I have 2 sons and a wonderful husband.
7.  I have built this entire business from my kitchen table, basement office, on my home computer and iphone!  You can do it too!
8.  I started Beachbody as a challenger trying to lose my post pregnancy weight.  I did Insanity, drank Shakeology and learned to Eat Clean.
9. I lost 30 lbs and shared my story with others in hopes that I could inspire them to do the same!
10.  I was consistent with sharing tips every day of how to make healthy changes in your own life.

Lastly, I did it because I loved to help others.  I didn't do it because I could make money.  I don't see my coaches or customers as a dollar sign or point.  I see them as real people, with real struggles who are confiding in me to help them! That truly transpires into leadership, income and the ability to replace my full time income when I worked (before kids) a few times over!!!  


Top Coach, Successful Team Beachbody Coach, Leader, Mentor, Training

I started my business working when my kids napped, before they woke up or after they went to bed at night.  I squeezed an hour here and there.  Then, slowly as my business grew I had a sitter a few hours once a week, now I run my Beachbody business by working 2 and a half days a week!!!  I don't have to get dressed, take my kids to daycare, drive to an office, or even report to a boss!  I get to wake up, put on my workout clothes, walk to my office downstairs and reach thousands of people on a daily basis from the comfort of my own home.  Plus my fitness is my business!  So the more I stay on track with my  health and fitness the better example I am and the more my business grows! Talk about motivation right there!!!!!
Work From Home, Team Beachbody, Insanity, Shakeology, Elite coach, Training


So now here is the question I have for you!!! Do you read my blog, do you ever wonder if you could be a coach?  Do you ask yourself if you have what it takes?  Well.... DO YOU?!  Do you have this tugging at your heart, this feeling in your gut that says YES I COULD TOTALLY MAKE THIS WORK!!!

Well if that is you, then I challenge you to complete the application below.  Take that leap of faith and gain some more information about coaching on my team!  It's time to face your fears but know that you can face them in COMFORT that I am there to help you through it!  You only fail if you let yourself fail!  As a leader I am here to mentor you, to guide you and to give you all the tools that I have created to build a 6 figure income in less than 3 years.  I will not let you re-invent the wheel, waste your time, but instead I will enroll you in my 60 day Accelerated Coach Apprenticeship Program that is exclusive to the Dream Team.  Someone else will not mentor you, I WILL!  I am your COACH and I will be there to answer your questions to guide and teach you!!!!  We do weekly team calls, 1:1 calls and small break out calls.  In addition you have access to my closed facebook group where each day you will receive information to help you develop your business from the ground up!  


I of course cannot MAKE you successful.  I can give you the tools that have helped me succeed, but in the end it is your decision to follow my guidance and make it happen!  But if you tell me you want to BLOW it out of the water you better believe I am going to be right there helping you!  If you want to go slow and steady and see where it takes you, then I respect that as well.  I match your pace!  You are the BOSS, you set the tone and we work together!!!!  

So, now what are you waiting for?!  Now is your time?!?! My Accelerated Coach Program is going to kick off on May 5th.  I have a limited number of spots that I have open on my team!  If you would like to be considered please complete the application below and I will contact you ASAP with a detailed response!

Pittsburgh Super Saturday April 2014


Happy Sunday!!!  It's been an amazing weekend and the weather in Pittsburgh is finally breaking and the sun is out!!!  Just in time for our Tropical Themed Super Saturday event!  Yesterday the Pittsburgh Leadership Council hosted an event for all the local Team Beachbody Coaches in the area.  So what is Super Saturday?

It is a quarterly even that Team Beachbody sponsors and coaches all over the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico host!  Myself along with some fabulous ladies hosted this event!  It is jam packed with customers weight loss success stories, Coaches business success, recognition for achievements and training for coaches on how to grow their Beachbody Business. Yesterday I had the privilege of being a presenter in the Super Saturday videos.  I was asked to speak on developing your brand and attracting other people to you.  The premises of my business has always been sharing my experience, my story, transformation and what has worked for me. Then, I find that others naturally build trust with me and want to participate in my accountability groups and coaching.  Honestly I run the other way when someone tries to sell me on something so I always go with attraction marketing!  I will be posting the actual link to see my presentation tomorrow once it is up on the site!  We opened up the room for discussion after the event and did a Question and Answer session for the Elite Panel after the video.
We discussed ways to get a new coach started right, how to mix being a fitness instructor with Team Beachbody and all the ways to improve your business.

The event ended with an amazing workout by Master Trainer Kam Niskah with Piyo and Insanity.  The one thing that really stuck out to me was the ENERGY in the room! The fact that the room was buzzing with excitement, success, and the possibilities of what Team Beachbody can provide for your future.  The one thing that I love about this company is that they don't just SELL a product to make you lose weight but they truly CHANGE YOUR LIFE emotionally, physically and make you HEALTHY from the inside out!  People are happy, they love their jobs, they love working out, they eat healthy and they feel good!  Yes we all have struggles, we have a story that has changed us in some way but that story brought us all to the place that we are right now.  3 years ago we were struggling and almost begging people to attend our Super Saturday events.  Now the registration is full, they have to bring in more chairs, the room is buzzing with activity, networking and new ideas and we are even planning BIGGER EVENTS and SPECIAL GUESTS to come!  It is truly amazing what you can do when you have a determined mind.

3 years ago we sat around a kitchen table thinking about how we could put Pittsburgh on the map.  No one knew what Team Beachbody was, what a Coach was or even what Chalean Extreme and Turbofire were!  Now, half of Western PA is on Shakeology, is in a challenge group and working towards improving their health!  I would say that is quite an ACCOMPLISHMENT!  You just never know the lives you will touch along the way by 1 decision to take your transformation story from a Beachbody Fitness Program and turn it into a vehicle to change others lives for the better!  It was a choice that I made to better my health because I was sad, a little depressed, overweight and at home with a newborn and toddler.  I found peace and comfort in having this amazing Beachbody Challenge Group as a support system to lift me up.  Every day I am thankful for the gift to get up in front of people, to tell my story, to inspire others to do the same and teach people that YOU CAN DO IT TO!!!!  You can start as one person and IMPACT others!!!  It's called the RIPPLE EFFECT!  It doesn't happen overnight but it does happen and  you look back in amazement at just how grand it can be!

Future top 10 Coaches right there!!!!!
Through this entire event there are always people in your life that you hold a special place for! That is my momma!  She is my BEST FRIEND in the whole world! She supports me in everything that I do, keeps me grounded in my faith and reminds me to keep the balance in my life! She is honestly amazing!  She came to my event to see me speak, to support me in this business and to let me know that she is proud of everything that I have accomplished!!!  I love you MOM!!!!!


Beachbody Super Saturday
My momma and I

Last but never LEAST the man on the left....my HUBBY!!!!  Thank you for being my wingman in my business for being my supporter and voice of reason!  I wouldn't be who I am today without you!  You mold me, shape me and guide me with your values, your trust and support. You truly are amazing and you deserve a metal for all that you do!!  I love you!!!
Our faithful MEN!!!!!  
So this is what I've been busy doing this weekend!  Chatting with others about their Beachbody Business, giving tips, talking to coaches about their personal transformation stories, planning the next event and putting a face with all the names I see on facebook and social media each day!  You really do make an impact, no matter how many people like your pictures or posts, or visit your blog you are impacting so many more than you think.

Never ever give up on the beauty of your dreams!!!  Always work to attract others to you, to your brand to what makes you unique. Never change who you are just because you think they won't want to hear your real story.  You are interesting, you are exciting and you can connect with people by just being who you are!!!!!

Get out there and be YOU, INSPIRE, INVITE, CONNECT and ATTRACT like minded individuals to your business.  You HAVE what it takes.  Let go of fear of failure and know that anything is possible.

21 Day Fix Women's Results

21 Day Fix Transformation Story


Today is #TransformationTuesday and it's time to chat about the results you can get from the 21 Day fix.  I have been getting a lot of great questions as to whether or not it really works and can you maintain your progress?!  Well first of all the 21 Day Fix is not a quick fix but the start of a lifestyle change.  It truly is 21 days to creating healthier and new habits.  The 21 day fix is specifically designed to teach you proper portion control, to give you a variety of foods to choose from but not limit you to drastically.  The fix has allowed my entire family to eat the same meals every night for dinner.  I have been able to effectively teach my husband the portion control as well.  Its almost a fool proof system to help anyone get started with changing their habits.


Then the second component to the fix is the exercise.  You aren't in the gym for hours each day to achieve results, only 30 minutes a day each week for 3 weeks.  Your workouts are a combination of strength training, cardio, Pilates and yoga.  The workouts are really engaging and honestly you get a great workout in that amount of time.  No matter your ability level you can do this workout.

So the magic happens when you combine the two together, nutrition and fitness plus a killer support system like my challenge groups and you have success out the wazoo!!!!  You have people who have never stuck to anything in their life getting amazing results.  I have customers who were stuck at a plateau in their weight loss that have done the fix and broke through!  The Fix is making it all possible for people to create a new lifestyle.  It doesn't end at day 21, that is actually where the journey begins.  Its after the 21 days that you really truly are seeing drastic results, you are changing your mindset and what once was work is now becoming a routine!  

So today I wanted to share with you some amazing results from the Dream Team Fix Challengers.

Alex James 21 Day Fix Results
So I did the fix because I was totally off track with my eating and was having way too many carbs and not enough protein. I was not seeing results for my hard work I was putting into working out. The fix helped me get back to where I should be and helped me realize portions of each kind of food. Total lost was 7 pounds, 4 inches!

21 Day Fix Flank Steak Dinner Recipe

Clean Eating, Flank Steak, Dinner Recipe
Flank Steak Dinner
Recipe time!!!  I am such a meat and potatoes person that just about every meal that I make has these three components.  There is always a lean protein source, a vegetable and then a starchy carb.  The difference between when I was a child to now is that the protein source is lean, is basic, not covered in gravy, sauces or breading and the starch is not a white starch, with butter and cream.  The vegetable is seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic vs butter!  Lastly the difference is that its portion controlled. It is not just a free for all at the dinner table but a conscious decision to fuel your body for energy and not just comfort.

What resulted in this process is that my food actually does taste more flavorful, I don't feel weighed down or sluggish and I am not over stuffed but satisfied!  So know this, a meat and potatoes girl like myself can change her ways, then so can you!!!

This is what I like to call a MANS dinner!  I cooked this meal for my Dad and boys on Sunday while they were putting together Bryce's big boy bed and hanging our TV in the basement/workout room/office.

There was not a peep from the dinner table and not a morsel left on anyone's plate!  So I figured this would be a great easy recipe to share with you!

Flank Steak:  This is one of the leanest red meats that you can buy.  We buy our flank steak at Costco and have been very pleased.

Ingredients:  
Flank Steak
Fiesta Lime No Salt Added Mrs Dash Seasoning
Extra Virgin olive oil
Garlic Cloves Minced

Directions:
Take the fresh Flank Steak and place in Ziplok bag, drizzle with EVOO, Sprinkle with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning and add 2 minced garlic cloves and massage into the Steak.  Let sit for 15 minutes.  Then, place on grill or stove top pan on Medium High until it reaches the desired doneness.  Slice and serve.

Green Beans:  Place fresh green beans in a steamer and steam until tender to your liking.  Add a drizzle of EVOO and sea salt and pepper.

Potatoes:  Red and Purple potatoes are a favorite in our house.  I take the small potatoes and slice them down to potato chip size. Then I drizzle with EVOO and Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and toss to coat.  Place in oven at 350 degrees until chips reach their desired doneness!

Viola, super simple, easy dinner that everyone in your family will enjoy!!!

T25 Accountability and Support with the Summer Slim Down Challenge

T25 Sale and Promotion, Support, Guidance, Accountability, Meal Planning
Melanie Mitro's Summer Slim Down Challenge

Summer is right around the corner and I swear that the months are just flying by faster and faster!  I felt like just yesterday I was planning for Christmas and now we are planning for the beach and vacations! I remember very vividly 3 years ago getting ready for summer and going bathing suit shopping.  I literally laid on the bedroom floor crying because ABSOLUTELY nothing fit me!  After having 2 kids my body was NOT the same. Things that used to fit me were magically to short and they hugged me in ALL the wrong places!!!  I had never worn a one piece before and there was no way that this baby belly was going to fit into a bikini.

Below you can see my day 1 photo!  If you have ever taken before pictures before you know that feeling.  Literally looking at yourself in the absolute worst light ever and pointing out your flaws and making yourself completely vulnerable is really humbling.  I hid those photos in my computer in a file under a file and vowed never to show a single soul.  The ah-ha moment came when I started taking progress pictures along the way or "selfies" as we all know them!  This is when I realized that my body was changing way more than my eyes could see when looking in the mirror.  It wasn't until I was completely done with P90X and I compared day 1 to day 120 and I just about fell over!!! The change was drastic and mind blowing.  If I would not of taken those before pictures I would not of had that realization that what I was doing WORKED!!!

It was at that moment that I realized I had found my "THING" my "soul mate" workout and the system of not only weight loss but proper nutrition that I could stick with for the rest of my life.  I wanted to shout this from the rooftops that finally I had it together!  So in honor of my personal journey and transformation I am hosting a "Summer Slim Down Challenge" because that is what my very very first group was called and I am going to be giving you the SAME support, GUIDANCE, and INSPIRATION that I was given when I started.

Asking for help is hard, admitting that what you are doing isn't working or that you are stuck in your fitness and nutrition is a hard pill to swallow. But, MOM to MOM, WOMAN TO WOMAN, let me help you!  I am not a nutritionist or fitness expert but I am someone who has experience!  I have kids, I work full time, I am the maid, the cook, the boo-boo kisser, the mentor, supporter and Coach.  I am able to give you real life support because I have been there done that!  I have tricks up my sleeve for how to help you plan out your meals, grocery shop, food prep, how to handle temptations, traveling, emotional eating, late night snacks, how to feed your husband and kids healthy foods without a fight!  My job and my goal as a coach is to help you make this a lifestyle change and not a crash diet!  I don't want to see you start and finish my challenge group and then go back to your old ways.  I want to see this become a part of who you are!  This is life, a place where you have balance, you don't feel deprived but you  have energy, confidence, strength and health!  So this is the OFFICIAL invite to my SUMMER SLIM DOWN CHALLENGE starting on April 21st!  You will finish this challenge on June 23rd! 10 weeks to a totally new you!  

So here is the scoop!!!  This month T25 is on promotion which means that they have discounted the price about $90 for the challenge pack.  Plus T25 is by far the most effective workout I have seen.  Yes you can actually get great results in 25 minutes a day 5 days a week. Trust me, you jump right in, you get started, you work hard and you get results.  Shaun T has great modifications so no matter what your ability level is you can do this workout!!!!  You can see from the pictures below that it works!!!
So T25 is the program of choice, because lets face it we don't have hours to spend in the gym and we have to get on with life.  So this fits our lifestyle!!!!



Then you are committed to replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the 10 weeks.  Yes I know that some people don't want to do a meal replacement, they are afraid they won't like it, it won't taste good, its too expensive or they don't want to have to drink it forever to keep the weight off!  Well, the good news is this!  It is not your typical protein shake!!  It is a meal replacement with the proper carb to protein ratio to keep you full for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, to give you natural energy, to curb cravings for sweets, and to keep you healthy!  Most of us have good intentions of eating healthy, of cooking and preparing all our meals each day but lets face it that doesn't happen.  We run late, we oversleep, the kids misbehaved and we are finding ourselves running out the door without breakfast or lunch.  Instead of hitting the drive thru you literally grab a shaker cup, water and Shakeology!  Breakfast on the go minus the crap that weighs you down and keeps you from reaching your goal.  It's nutrition in a glass and its convenient!!!  So, trust me on this!  Give me 10 weeks of Shakeology and I will teach you how to plan out your meals, how to make better choices and at the end of the group you will be armed with all the tools to make healthy decisions and you can decide to continue or not at that time! DEAL!!!!!

So now what?!  What can you expect?!  When you sign up for my challenge group you don't just get a bag of Shakeology and a fitness program!  You get "ME"!!!!  LOL, well you get a lot!  So I run groups in which I add you to a closed online support group where no one but the members of the group can see what is being posted. Then, I have an entire week before we start and I call it "Pre-Season" and this is where we plan and prep.  I help you write goals, we do pics and measurements, we talk about meal planning in depth and I guide you in the right direction to be ready for day 1!
Then each week you get a motivational Monday video from me, and a daily post with either tips, tricks, recipes, accountability to keep you on track.  Each day you log in, read the daily post, log your accountability stats and you stay focused on your journey!  There will be ups and downs, days you want to quit, or days that you feel like the progress isn't happening fast enough.
