Single Sheet Pan Meal Prep: Salmon + Veggies

Hey, y’all! With the New Year coming, I know many of y’all will be working towards health goals (myself included). I am very proud to have lost around 130 lbs this year — that said, I’m not done and I’m in the phase where the “real dedication begins”. As such, I wanted to provide you with two single sheet pan meal prep options for your busy life to make sure that you are kicking 2021 healthily (both a salmon and chicken sheet pan option)!

FAQ

What is the key to cooking the perfect sheet pan meal?

The key is to cut your vegetables to a uniform size. This will ensure that cooking time is consistent. From there, make sure your meat is not too thick. By thinning it out/dicing it, particularly in the case of chicken, the chicken will have the ability to cook all of the way through.

Can I sub vegetables?

Absolutely! I find that sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts often need to be cooked longer than the rest of the items on the sheet, which is something to consider. If using sweet potatoes, I recommend dicing them into small pieces (or purchasing them already frozen this way). If using Brussels sprouts, I recommend using shaved sprouts.
