Every body is a beach body! That is my favorite phrase and this blog is in honor of my 5-year anniversary as a TBB (Team Beachbody) coach! Below you will find all of my favorite Beachbody recipes that are approved for 21-day fix and 2B Mindset, Beachbody recipes with ground beef, Beachbody recipes for dinner, Beachbody recipes for Shakeology, and Beachbody recipes for lunch. As many Beachbody approved recipes as you can think of (ok maybe not because there are thousands that my Virtual Wellness Studio clients have access to and I can’t possibly fit them in this blog) will be featured right here.

Beachbody Recipes Using Ground Beef

I live in a small mountain community at 10.200 feet elevation. Needless to say, I enjoy supporting my local community and I also only eat meat that I know is consciously raised and sustainably farmed. A girlfriend of mine has a ranch and so I purchased a 1/4 cow from her, We freeze the meat and eat it throughout the year. Last year my partner had throat cancer and let’s just say I cannot eat a 1/4 cow by myself, so I have recently been making as many meals with ground beef as possible! I add it to salads, eggs, pasta, quesadillas, vegetables, you name it. I have had to get quite creative in all my ways to use beef, and Beachbody has been very helpful. Here are a few of my favorite ground beef recipes:
