Easy and Low-Carb Sheet Pan Meal Prep Idea

I’ll share with you low-carb meal prep ideas to set yourself up for success. I am trying to create a life that I love and part of that is working on my health. And that involves meal prep. All meal prep involves is a sheet pan, protein, and veggies.


1. Pick a protein and veggie

I always want a protein, which would be chicken, pork, shrimp, fish, or beef. But if you don’t want meat your protein can be a bean or legume. You can use tofu, if you want. You can use Impossible Meat.

Today, I’m using beef stew meat. Then I add in veggies to bulk it up and give me the vitamins and nutrients that I need. I’ll also do half an onion. Onions, mushrooms, and steak are delicious.

Green beans

I have baby bella mushrooms. Mushrooms and steak go perfectly together. I’ll bulk it up with frozen green beans. I’ll season it up on my sheet pan and boom, I have a few meals made for the week so we can grab and go.


2. Pick a seasoning

I love this Kinder’s The Blend seasoning. It has all the salt, pepper, garlic, and more. I’ll use this and olive oil to keep it simple.

3. Oil the pan

I just drizzle olive oil on the whole pan. I took a paper towel and spread the oil around.

4. Assemble the pan

I just put the chunks of meat in the pan. I like it like this so I don’t have to cut it later.

Here it is boxed up for the fridge. I was able to get four meals out of that one sheet pan. I take them for lunches or use them for a full dinner meal.
