When I saw this sheet pan meal prep idea, I knew I had to make it because the one thing that keeps many of us from eating as healthily as we would like to is time. Time plays a huge role in the decisions we make on all levels and we’ve all had very noble intentions with a clear resolve to eat more healthy and make better choices, only to let it all fly out the window because we have let ourselves get too hungry and we go into the kitchen grasping for the first thing we see. There is an answer, it’s called meal prepping, and follow along because you are not going to believe how easy and simple meal prepping can make your life. These lovely pre-made meals can be stored in the fridge for the entire week or in the freezer indefinitely and I guarantee you won’t be running into the kitchen starving to death grabbing chips and crackers. The meals are also excellent to take to work or to any place you may need a quick pick me up before your blood sugar gets low.
