21 day fix container menu ideas - at work and at home

So normally, I work all day...but with Mikey's arrival mid-July, I have been blessed to stay at home with him on a 12 week maternity leave.  As I've mentioned, I started country heat work outs and eating plan when he was almost 7 weeks old, so being at home versus being at work means slightly different menus for me - essentially just switching up my shake from afternoon snack to breakfast because I like my shake blended in the blender- which I don't have at work. 

One of the hardest thing I found when starting out was to get in a good meal planning routine with a decent amount of variety of food that's easy to prep and make and also family-taste friendly.  



Here is a link to a few menus (one that I used this week while I'm at home and then just modified for when I go back to work - in less than TWO WEEKS- crazy how fast time flies!!).  I have my template on here (remember I went up a calorie bracket because I'm still breastfeeding and want to keep my supply up and need more calories!) that I use constantly.  I have included links to dinner recipes that I've found with the following criteria

1- EASY (I LOVE the crockpot)
2- obviously fix approved and somewhat fit into my normal dinner containers (1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow!)
3- family/kid approved!!!

Take a look and let me know if you have any questions or comments!  

Here are the dinner recipes I've included in this weekly meal plan:
Chipotle Salmon (just salmon + 21 day fix SW seasoning)
Shredded chicken burrito bowl


Happy meal planning!
