10 Healthy Sheet Pan Meals For Busy Weeknights

Summer is over and back to school season is officially here!! If I’m being honest, I’m 100% here for summer coming to an end. I’ve been over summer for about a month now and am just patiently awaiting fall. Anywhooo, classes start on Monday for me and just by glancing at my planner, I can already tell this semester is going to be cuh-razy! With that being said, having a streamline weeknight routine is going to be vital to both my success and my sanity. It’s important to me that I maximize productivity and continue to take care of myself all without sacrificing the quality (and healthiness) of my meals during week. With class, lab work, writing and studying, as a grad student, sometimes I just don’t have the time or the energy to cook an elaborate clean eating meal prep. As a result, I often end up grabbing dinner from a drive-thru because, well, convenience. If you’re in the same boat as me, I’m here to help you out!
