Autumn Calabrese’s Fixate cookbook was highly anticipated for months leading up to its official release date earlier this year in July, and for good reason. The cook book was the only piece of the puzzle that the popular 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme fitness and nutritional programs were missing. Since its release, sales have continued to soar and production of the popular cookbook has been ramped up! The book is filled with 101 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and even cocktails, all tailored to the vastly popular portion control nutrition program designed by Autumn Calabrese herself. The recipes consist of healthy, delicious, portion controlled meals and snacks that are easy to prepare. They are also all kid friendly since Autumn is a mom of a young boy herself. Those with specific dietary needs that may need to eat gluten free, low glycemic, vegan or paleo foods will have many options with Fixate as well.
Why is Fixate Different from Other Cookbooks?
Fixate was specifically designed with a clean eating focus in mind. Each of the 101 recipes has nutritional facts and lists the famous color-coded container equivalents too. It even has a variety of recipes for Shakeology, Beachbody’s superfood nutritional shake. There are recipes for smoothies, pancakes and other treats you can make using any of Shakeology’s 6 flavors. Bottom line is, the cookbook will provide you with anything you need to properly nourish your body and your family’s so you eat well, can still lose weight and have enough energy to make it through your workouts.
Who Would Love Fixate?
Fixate is ideal for the busy, working moms, dads and singles alike that want to eat well without spending hours in the kitchen. If you fit the following description, Fixate is ideal for you:
- Want to eat clean
- Need help with meal prep
- Want to eat properly portion meals
- Need gluten free ideas
- Want to help your family eat healthy
- Don’t have time to spend a lot of time in the kitchen
What Else Does Fixate Offer Besides Recipes?
In the book, Autumn Calabrese helps you organize your kitchen and your pantry so you can repurpose food and not letting anything go to waste. She helps plan for leftovers and turn them into new lunches and quick snacks. In addition, she also tackles the topic of meal prepping and staying on track even when weeks are overwhelmed with business trips, kids’ activities, late work days and other factors that keep us out of the house for hours and sometimes days on end.
How Does Fixate Help with Portion Control?
Fixate recipes are all aligned to the 21 Day Fix program and its famous portion control containers. The containers help you be able to eyeball portions and eat well throughout the day whether you’re at work, home, a party, vacation, etc. You use them as somewhat of a measuring cup when you have snacks, make a salad, a recipe, etc and then refer to them when you’re out at a restaurant or party. After using them for a few weeks, you get a really good idea about what a proper portion looks like so it makes it simple to eat just the right amount of food. The Fixate recipes all tell you the container equivalent so you are not left guessing how many containers each serving of the meal you just ate accounted for.
Are There Many Recipes For Special Diets?
One of the questions asked by people seeking a new diet regimen is whether the nutritional program they are looking into accommodates special dietary needs such as those of people that are diabetic, vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerant, paleo and the like. When Autumn Calabrese created Fixate along with Beachbody, she kept this in mind and specifically created recipes that were vegetarian, paleo, gluten free and adhered to other special diet needs. The best part is that these recipes can be enjoyed by anyone, not just those requiring those types of meals. There is even an entire section of gluten free desserts!
Are the Fixate Recipes Family and Kid Friendly?
Autumn Calabrese has a young six year old son and she made sure to include him when creating this book. The recipes in the book would not be in there if her son would not eat them too. They may have vegetables and lots of goodness but they are also delicious recipes that most that have tried them think of them as nothing short of phenomenal.
Can I Use the Fixate Cookbook with all Beachbody fitness Programs?
Yes, the Fixate cookbook can be used with any and all Beachbody programs. The nutritional facts are listed for each and they all consist of lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and none of the fat free, preservative filled concoctions of most fad diets today. Every single person, regardless of dietary needs, fitness level, or program of choice can nourish their body appropriately with Fixate and benefit from it in a variety of ways.

What If I Want Information on the 21 Day Fix Program and How to Purchase It?
If you have yet to purchase the 21 Day Fix program, you are missing out on one of the most well rounded fitness and nutrition programs released to date. The 21 Day Fix fitness program by Autumn Calabrese has had amazing success since its release in February 2014. It was so popular that a more challenging sequel was released soon after and is now a favorite of all Team Beachbody programs. The workouts in both are simple to follow, yet challenging enough to help burn fat, tone and build lean muscle in only 30 minutes per day. The short, yet effective workouts and easy to follow, family friendly meal plan are the perfect combo for beginners. The nutrition guide walks you through using each of the portion controlled containers and teaches you how to eat a balanced diet without having to cut out your favorite foods. Up until a few weeks ago, a cook book with recipes aligned to the 21 Day Fix program was the only thing missing from the 21 Day Fix. Now the program is complete and you can get it on the Team Beachbody website as well!
The fixate cookbook is so easy to use and perfect for busy moms! Everything is so easy to make, very healthy and tastes great! I love the wide variety of recipes that it has, and so does my family. Even my picky two year old has eaten everything I’ve made so far without complaint. I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants to try creative and healthy recipes.
It seemed like I waited months for this cookbook to come out and I was SO relieved when it finally did. As a busy, full time working mom of four kids, cooking is not always easy to do, especially during busy weekdays with tons of activities. Fixate changed that because I can whip up an easy , healthy recipe in less than thirty minutes and the kids actually eat it. Then the next day, I can repurpose that recipe into a delicious lunch or a different dinner. It is compact and easy to use too, not to mention the pretty low price compared to other cookbooks. AND it comes with containers if you want another set!
