Fall Soccer Mom Meal Plan

It's quick, it's simple, and you can prep it in no time! 

A 1200-1500 calorie meal plan using the 21 Day Fix container system to the rescue. 
As a reminder--
Green is veggies, purple is fruits, red is protein, yellow is carbs, blue is healthy fats, and orange is for seeds and dressings. Each day you get:


  • 3 green containers
  • 2 purple containers
  • 4 red containers
  • 2 yellow containers
  • 1 blue container
  • 1 orange container
  • 2 teaspoons



Please note that I re-arranged the timing of the snacks shown based on my schedule! Do whatever floats your boat. 

Monday/Wednesday/Friday 
Breakfast:12 almonds and Shakeology blended with ½ cup blueberries, water, and ice (not shown) (½ purple, 1 red, 1 blue)
Snack 1: Whole-grain rice cake with 2 tsp. peanut butter (½ yellow, 2 tsp.)
Lunch: Mason jar salad with 2 Tbsp. vinegar-based dressing, 1 cup cherry tomatoes, ½ cup bell peppers, ¼ cup onion, ¾ cup cooked chicken breast (about 4 oz.), ¾ cup baby spinach (2 green, 1 red, 1 orange)
Snack 2: Baked Oatmeal Cups with Blueberries with 2 hard-boiled eggs or ¾ cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt (Not shown) (½ purple, 1 red, 1 yellow)
Dinner: ¾ cup seasoned ground turkey with 1 cup sautéed zucchini, and 1 cup strawberries (1 purple, 1 green, 1 red) ** Turn this into dinner for your family by adding whole grain pasta and jarred pasta sauce. Remember to watch the sugar content in the sauce. 
Snack 3: 1½ cups air-popped popcorn (½ yellow)

Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday 
Breakfast: A handful of cashews and  Shakeology blended with ½ frozen banana, water, and ice (not shown) (1 purple, 1 red, 1 blue)
Snack 1: 1/2 cup apple slices with 2 tsp. peanut butter (1/2 purple, 2 tsp.)
Lunch: Roast Beef Salad: 1 cup lettuce, ½ cup cherry tomatoes, ½ cup shredded carrots, 3 oz. deli roast beef, dressing (2 green, 1 red, 1 orange)
Snack 2: Baked Oatmeal Cups with Blueberries with 2 hard-boiled eggs or ¾ cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt  (½ purple, 1 red, 1 yellow)
Dinner:  Slow Cooker Beef Chili (1 green, 1 yellow, 1 Red, 1/2 teaspoon) 
Sunday: I usually give myself a little grace and eat leftovers, a coffee drink treat (count as a yellow!), and sample while I meal prep. I still count my containers, just not worrying if I don't hit them all.
