Happy New Year! I don't know about you, but over the holidays we totally stopped meal planning. As a result, we were eating out all the time. It blew our budget and lead to unhealthy eating. Now that school is back in session we are back to meal planning. Last year I shared how I was trying to add more fruits and vegetables to our meal planning.
I read a really interesting article that changed the approach and instead said teach your kids to eat the rainbow of colors. I feel like this approach to healthy eating makes meal planning and prepping more fun. Our daughter B loves to bake, but when it comes to cooking she generally does not want to help. I could not believe how when I started to prep this sheet pan chicken and vegetables dish she quickly asked if she could help. You can see her cute little hands in the video below.

What is a Sheet pan Chicken and Vegetables Meal?
I love a sheet pan meal because it limits the pots and pans you use and therefore the pots and pans you have to clean up. You can make everything from salmon to chicken and vegetables. They make the perfect weeknight meal. The goal is to cook everything on one pan. Who knew cookie sheets could be used to make healthy 30-minute meals too. Talk about a versatile pan.
