Super Simple No-Cook Meal Prep for 3-Day Refresh

No matter what sent you off course, it’s easy to get back on track with 3-Day Refresh.

Clean-eating programs like 3-Day Refresh (and the 21-day Ultimate Reset) give you an opportunity to refocus your health goals, give your body and digestive system a break, and take stock of habits that may not be contributing positively to your health.

Pro tip: Learn the difference between a cleanse and detox here.

But abruptly changing your diet and daily routine can feel like a daunting task, especially if you’re pressed for time or you aren’t used to cooking your own meals.

That’s why we created this super-simple meal prep that will guide you through making all of your meals for 3-Day Refresh in under an hour without cooking a single thing!

This is 3-Day Refresh stripped down to be bare-bones simple: You’ll eat the same meals each day, but it’s only three days (not too bad, right?).

If you want to add more variety, or hot meals other than soup, simply read the 3-Day Refresh Program Guide that came with your kit, and swap in a recipe you like. Or, try this 3-Day Refresh meal prep.

Instructions:

1. Each day, you’ll make your Shakeology, Vanilla Fresh, Fiber Sweep, and optional teas just before drinking.

2. Prepare your snacks. Slice 1½ red bell peppers and 3 stalks celery into sticks for dipping. Divide evenly between three food storage containers. Top each with 2 Tbsp. hummus. Seal lids and place in refrigerator.

3. Next, make the Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh. Finely chop (or pulse in a food processor) 1 cup cauliflower florets, until they resemble couscous. Place cauliflower in a large bowl and add ½ chopped tomato, ½ cup chopped cucumber, ¼ cup chopped onion, ½–¾ cup chopped parsley, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, 3 tsp. olive oil, Himalayan salt to taste, and chili flakes to taste (optional). Stir to combine. Divide evenly between three food storage containers and place in refrigerator.

(This recipe can also be made with cooked cauliflower rice if preferred. Cook finely chopped cauliflower in a nonstick pan over medium heat 5 minutes. Allow to cool before mixing with other ingredients.)
