5 Recipes to Customize 3-Day Refresh

5 Recipes to Customize 3-Day Refresh

It can happen to anyone.

An extra slice of pizza here; a donut box in the breakroom there; a “scoop” bowl of ice cream that somehow turned into half a pint, and suddenly your boyfriend jeans are too-tight skinny jeans.

When that happens, it’s time to make a clean break from bad habits.

3-Day Refresh can help you jumpstart weight loss, re-establish healthy eating, and get back on track. With three days of simple, plant-based meals and specially formulated drinks that provide essential nutrients, curb hunger, and promote digestive health.

The 3-Day Refresh kit includes Shakeology, Fiber Sweep, Beachbody’s blend of whole ground flax, chia, and psyllium seed husks, and Vanilla Fresh, a high-protein shake.

Fiber Sweep has healthy omega-3 fats and more than 13 grams of fiber per serving to gently support digestion and help you feel full while you’re eating fewer calories.

It thickens when added to water, so it should be consumed immediately after mixing.

Like Shakeology, Vanilla Fresh contains probiotics, vitamins, and minerals, but it is intended to accompany meals to deliver the essential protein your body needs while eating a meat- and dairy-free diet of fruits and vegetables.

On the 3-Day Refresh, you’ll have four of these drinks each day: one serving of Shakeology in the morning, Fiber Sweep at midday, and Vanilla Fresh with lunch and dinner.

Vanilla Fresh is intended to support your 3-Day Refresh during the daytime, so eat dinner and drink your second Vanilla Fresh shake at least two hours before going to bed.

You can have a cup of unsweetened herbal tea in the evening, at least one hour after dinner.

You can enjoy the Fiber Sweep or Vanilla Fresh as described in the 3-Day Refresh Program Guide, or you can customize them using the recipes below as inspiration.
