Sheet Pan Meals

You know those weeks where you feel like you don’t even have time to cook dinner? And sometimes you end up picking up takeout because it seems like the easiest option? This meal plan is for those kinds of weeks. We want to give you an option that allows you to throw something together quickly but still enjoy the taste of home cooked, healthy meals. Sheet pan dinners are the best because they minimize clean up by utilizing one cooking vessel and they make cooking mostly hands-off. We are providing you with four different dinner recipes that simply require you to throw everything on a sheet pan and bake in the oven for the most part. To save even more time, cut vegetables, make sauce or mix spices the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking. Also, use parchment paper to make the clean up a breeze. This meal plan provides you with a healthy balance of poultry, fish, and red meat along with a variety of different colorful vegetables. Be sure to read the “to reduce waste and save time” tips for each dinner!
