Container Counts

As per popular request, I am now updating all recipes to include container counts from Ultimate Portion Fix and 21 Day Fix.
The full recipe: 8 greens, 16 yellows, 6 tsps.
Per serving: 1 green, 2 yellow, 3/4 tsps.
If following the vegan plan the lentils count as protein. The counts for vegan would be 1.5 Yellow and 1/3 Red Per serving or 12 Yellows and 3 Red for the full recipe.
