7 Slow Cooker Recipes for the Core de Force Meal Plan (or 21 Day Fix)
Don't you just love throwing a few ingredients in a crockpot in the morning and coming home to a delicious meal with zero effort? I love my slow cooker and today I'm sharing seven crockpot recipes totally on plan for Beachbody’s Core de Force meal plan.
Beachbody likes to keep things simple, so the Core de Force meal plan is a portion control clean-eating meal plan, just like the 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, Hammer & Chisel, and many other Beachbody workout programs.
This makes it super easy to use your favorite recipes no matter which plan you are following. And even if you don’t follow one of the Beachbody nutrition plans, these are just good ol’ healthy recipes.
Today I'm featuring crock pot meals, perfect for busy days! These recipes are all from the Team Beachbody blog; just click the link in the title to be taken to the full recipe.
7 Crock Pot Recipes for the Core de Force Meal Plan
Oh yes, I remember the days of Dave Ramsey and "beans and rice and rice and beans!" But still a tasty dinner. True confession (or maybe this is just a great tip).... I use canned beans. I have no interest in soaking beans overnight or boiling them first thing in the morning.

I love meatballs of any kind, and turkey meatballs are lower in calories than beef. You can serve these with marinara sauce and pasta or spaghetti squash or throw them in chicken broth with some leftover veggies for a quick soup.

If you have a large crockpot definitely double the recipe. That way you can eat leftovers for lunch later in the week! You can serve with tortillas, but I also like fajitas (warm but not piping hot) over a salad. I have weird tastes, lol. You can also freeze the fajita mixture!

This slow cooker recipe for Chicken with Quinoa and Spring Vegetables is light but hearty. As the chicken gently cooks for hours it becomes extremely tender and juicy, but it’s the quinoa that’s the real surprise in this dish.

OMG, cheesy enchiladas!!! This will definitely become one of your favorite recipes. Perfect for cold winter days!

Luckily, with this Slow Cooker Banana Bread Oatmeal, breakfast can taste like dessert while still being a wholesome and nutritious way to fuel your day. It’s got all of the flavor of a luscious slice of banana bread, without the oily fat (or the extra smear of butter on top). Cinnamon, nutmeg, and three whole bananas give it authentic “baked-in” taste. Ground flax seeds give it extra nuttiness and a boost of fiber and healthy omega-3s. And, the best part is, this recipe cooks overnight and is ready to eat when you wake up!

One of my favorite chili recipes is from the 21 Day Fix Extreme cookbook. It's a turkey chili but I usually substitute ground beef to make the family happy. This uses cubes of chuck steak instead, but it's super simple. This recipe can also be doubled and leftovers frozen.
