If you are a part of the 21 Day Fix program by Autumn Calabrese, you might be looking for more dishes to add to your menu and I have scoured the internet and found you some delicious and palate pleasing 21 Day Fix Slow Cooker recipes for you to try out.
All of these recipes are 21 Day Fix approved, which is awesome. You will have a variety of options, which is always a plus. I am a person that likes to have a variety of dishes that we rotate for lunches and dinners. It is hard to eat the same three things over and over again.
And when you are following this 21 Day program, having the container counts on dinner recipes makes it so much easier to work into your meal planning.
What is so awesome about using a slow cooker, is you toss the ingredients in, first thing in the morning, set it to cook and leave. When you arrive home from a busy day at work, the house smells amazing and supper is ready.
Create a quick and healthy side dish to pair with your main course and supper is served. It’s also a great way to get kids involved in cooking because you assemble ingredients when the pot is cold so you don’t have to worry about them burning themselves.
Plus I love using my slow cooker in the summer months, to help the house stay cooler, instead of having to run the oven as much.
I created a list of recipes that use pork, chicken, beef and more. So you can skim through and find a recipe that will fit you and your cravings perfectly. Click through to get the details for each recipe, but I did include the portion control container count to help you make an informed decision about which recipes as a good fit for you.
Measurements for Containers
Before I get to the list of 21 Day Fix slow cooker recipes, if you are wondering what the measurements for the containers are, I have posted them below for a quick, easy to follow guide as you are looking through all these recipes. This might help give you an idea if this dish is something you might want to try out or not.
If you don’t have the containers, now you know the regular measurements, or you can pick up some 21 Day Fix containers on Amazon without getting the entire program. If you don’t yet have the program, you can purchase it from Amazon or Beachbody programs. I like using Amazon because I’m super spoiled by how fast they ship things.
