sheet pan recipes

We all want to be healthy… For ourselves and our loved ones.

But our busy lives can get in the way. So, we end up making unhealthy food choices.

Like eating packaged convenience foods. And more often than not, they’re packed with unhealthy things like trans fats, sodium, and added preservatives.

So, to avoid reaching for them, the obvious solution would be to meal prep.

But meal prepping often involves washing tons of pots and pans. And who wants to meal prep and wash tons of pots and pans?

That’s I’m sharing 20 Sheet Pan Recipes for Meal Prep. With these Meal Prep recipes, you use only one pan.

So, you spend less time in the kitchen. And more time relaxing.

To keep your food fresh longer, you’ll want to store them in airtight food storage containers. I recommend these ones here because they are sustainable that will leak into your food.

Also, make sure you have a good set of sheet pans. You can get high-quality ones at an affordable price here.

Are you trying to get your kids to eat their veggies? Serve them this dish.

The chicken thighs are juicy, tender, and flavorful, and the chicken skin is nice and crispy. The brussels sprouts are nicely caramelized, so they’re sweet, not bitter.

And the brussels sprouts are basted in the juices from the chicken thighs. This adds a ton of flavor; your kiddos will want seconds.

As an added bonus, each serving contains only 6 grams of net carbs. So, they’re perfect if you’re on a low carb diet.

The secret to the chicken thighs being so flavorful is that you marinate them in a couple of spices and seasonings. So, bring out those measuring spoons. I like these ones here because they don’t rust or get stained.
