In terms of which apples to choose for this 21 Day Fix approved recipe, it’s really a matter of personal preference. However, the tartness of bright green Granny Smith apples will work well! Other options include classic Red Delicious apples or juicy Spartan apples.

When you’re indulging in these healthy chips, bear in mind that one apple will count as one purple container. As you are probably already aware, Amber Calabrese’s 21 Day Fix diet relies on strict portion control and portions are measured out in plastic, color-coded containers. By keeping in mind that one apple is one “purple”, you’ll be able to stay on track and stay organized…

Now, let’s talk about how to prepare these yummy apple chips right in your own home kitchen…

1.Homemade Apple Chips

Gather Two Simple Ingredients

You won’t need to spend a bundle at the grocery store or farmer’s market in order to make these luscious and nutritious apple chips. All that you’ll need is a single apple and a bit of cinnamon spice. If you don’t like cinnamon (or don’t have the spice handy!), just leave it out.

Apples are great on their own – however, the cinnamon will provide a bit of depth, so many people do love adding this classic spice. You’ll also need parchment paper in order to keep the apples in good condition as you bake them. Parchment paper isn’t expensive and it available via most grocery stores or dollar stores.

Next, you’ll need to pre-heat your oven. Two hundred degrees will be just right. Once this oven is pre-heated, it will be time to prepare the apple. First, core the fruit and then cut the apple into thin slices. You will want the slices really thin, so cut carefully with a paring knife. Then, prepare a cookie sheet for baking by covering it with parchment paper. Once the parchment paper is in place, lay out the apple slices and season them with pinches of cinnamon – it’s up to you how much cinnamon to add.

You’ll need to bake these for quite a while, as the heat level will be fairly low. So, bake them for 45 minutes on one side and then flip them. Bake them for another 45 minutes.  Then, you are done!

Remove them from the oven, transfer them to a plate and enjoy.

2.Meal Replacement Shake

Ingredients You Should Gather

  • A couple of scoops of your preferred protein powder, learn how to Choose the best protein powder for you, drink mix
  • One to two cups of fresh veggies – spinach will work well for this recipe
  • A couple of handfuls of frozen or fresh fruit, such as berries
  • A couple of tablespoons of good fat, such as nut butter or seeds
  • A liquid to help mix everything together – almond milk or cow’s milk will work (so will water)

Just pour these ingredients into your blender, the blender I use and my recommendations, and then pulse or blend them until they are smooth. Making this type of meal replacement shake will be really easy and it will help you to meet your 21 Day Fix goals.

Experiment with Different Ingredients

Once you’ve got the basic recipe down pat, you’ll be ready to change it up whenever you feel like it. For example, you’ll be able to change fruits and veggies and alternate nut butters in order to get interesting taste effects. We recommended spinach as a veggie because it tends to blend into drinks without being too noticeable. However, plenty of veggies may be utilized.

If you have a juicer, as well as a blender, you’ll be able to liquefy harder vegetables, such as beets or carrots. So, feel free to play around based on the equipment that is handy. Beets purify the blood, carrots are loaded with vitamin A, which contributes to good eyesight and skin quality…every fruit and veggie has its own properties and benefits…

What’s most important is that you choose a protein powder which is compatible with the 21 Day Fix program. You can find here our selection of the best protein powders to use.

Now that you know this convenient and easy meal replacement recipe, you’ll be ready to get nutrition, even when life is super-hectic. This will make it much easier to stay on your diet.

Next, you’ll need to buy a banana and a package of strawberries – look for a package of strawberries with at least nine berries in it.

In addition, you’ll need three teaspoons of your preferred nut butter. You may select almond butter, peanut butter or whatever you like best. Lastly, you’ll need a bit of cinnamon in order to add a spicy-sweet kick to your quesadillas. You’ll add cinnamon to taste.

How to Make Them

First, slice up the fruit and then place it on a plate. Next, heat up a fry pan by turning the burner to a medium-low setting…

Now, add one teaspoon of nut butter to each tortilla and then add one-quarter of the bananas and one-third of the berries. Add a pinch of cinnamon to each tortilla. Next, put the tortilla on the fry pan and then grill until it is light brown (and the nut butter is soft and warm). Then, fold the tortilla in order to create a quesadilla.

4.Roast Chickpeas

Roast ChickpeasChickpeas have lots of protein, they aren’t high in fat and they are fine choices for those who follow the popular (and simple and sensible!) 21 Day Fix diet/fitness plan. If you love chickpeas and you want to enjoy them in a whole new way, you’ll find that roasting them is the secret of discovering an amazing new snack idea which won’t short-circuit your fitness and weight loss goals.

So, let’s talk about how to roast chickpeas…you’ll find that it’s incredibly easy to do so and that these tasty legumes may be customized with the seasonings of your choice!

How to Begin Roasting Chickpeas

To get started, you’ll need a large, flat baking pan. In addition, in terms of ingredients, you’ll need a can of chickpeas, a bit of olive oil and the seasonings that you like best.

Examples of seasonings to consider include no-fat Italian dressing, lemon juice, garlic salt and/or plain old salt and pepper. Fresh herbs are also fine choices – dill or oregano will work. Basically, anything goes in terms of seasonings, as long as they are acceptable within the rules of the 21 Day Fix!

Drain and rinse your can of chickpeas – then, dry them between a couple of sheets of clean paper towels. This will allow the olive oil to adhere to them. In addition, it will remove the skins of the chickpeas.

Next, place the dried, de-skinned chickpeas in a bowl and then add a couple of teaspoons of the oil. After this, cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil and preheat your oven to four hundred and twenty-five degrees. Put the oiled chickpeas on the baking sheet and then bake them for about forty minutes – they should be brown and crisp when they are taken out of the oven.

Season Your Roasted Chickpeas

Lastly, season your tasty roasted chickpeas by adding your preferred spices, dressings and/or juices. A bit of garlic salt will work well if you’re not sure what to add, but don’t overdo it, as garlic salt is pretty potent. You will not need much in order to get a spicy kick.

Then, enjoy them as is or add them to recipes.

As you can see, this diet-friendly snack is designed to satisfy and it’s really easy to make. Chickpeas are fresh and natural, they aren’t expensive at all and they may be enjoyed day or night.
