21 Day Fix Family Friendly Recipes - unOriginal Mom (2024)



This is the finalpost in a little 3 part series about my experience with the 21 Day Fix – a diet and exercise program that reallyended uptransformingmy entire summer! You can read more about my 21 Day Fix Journey here.(That’s a good place to start if you are thinking, “what the heck is a 21 Day Fix?”). I also wrote all about 21 Day Fix Meal Planning Tips & Ideas in this post. Finally, I’m wrapping things up today with a round up of twenty-one 21 Day Fix Family Friendly recipes!

One of the biggest reasons I wanted to try the 21 Day Fix was to learn how to cook in a healthier way for my family. I am not a big organic, whole foods person…nothing against those that are, but I’m not fundamentally opposed to eating dinner from a box or anything :-) This program really helped toexpand my cooking repertoire and my knowledge of cooking with whole foods, as well as teach me better portion control and meal planning skills. I was really surprised, though, how well my whole family ate while I was following myFix meal plan. In the beginning, I sought out lots of family friendly recipes to try (and that was very helpful, hence why I’m rounding up these recipes for you!), but ultimately through that process I learned how to think through taking some of our favorite foods and lightening them upto make them healthier all around.

Even if you’re not participating in the 21 Day Fix, this is a collection of healthy, whole food meals that would be terrific to serve to your family. Enjoy! (Please pin from the original sources!)

stay-at-home mom to three beautiful children, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
