Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy.

Cooking large batches of vegetables makes it easier to eat veggies throughout the week. Pre-cooked veggies can be added to salads or served as a side dish, making both lunches and dinners easier to throw together.
Roasting large batches of vegetables on sheet pans is a great way to stock your fridge with ready-to-eat veggies. Another easy strategy is filling up the slow cooker and walking away for a couple hours.
You gotta love a meal that can be cooked and served on the same sheet pan, and will dirty only 3 other things in your kitchen. Maybe you’ll have to wash a food processor (if you rice your own cauliflower instead of buying cauliflower rice at the store) and maybe a garlic press and a spatula, but that’s about it—not bad for a healthy and tasty home-cooked meal.
The “recipe” for sheet pan chicken with cauliflower rice, olives and feta goes like this: Spread cauliflower rice out on a pan with olive oil, garlic and chicken. Bake. Add spinach, olives, feta and herbs. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
How’s that for simple?
If you don’t already keep a few cans of high quality tuna packed in olive oil in your pantry, this recipe is a great reason to start. The meal comes together quickly, with dazzling results. Cherry tomatoes and garlic are seared in a generous amount of olive oil, then comes the tuna and even more olive oil to make a richly flavorful sauce.
The sauce can be tossed with your favorite zoodles (zucchini noodles) or other vegetable-based zoodle varieties, but noodles aren’t necessary to make this meal great. If you don’t want to deal with noodles, just grab a spoon and dig in. The tomatoes and tuna are delicious on their own.
The whole point of sheet pan meals is to make life easier by delivering a flavorful, balanced meal to your table with very little cooking and cleanup involved. These sheet pan steak fajitas deliver on all counts. Strips of steak, bell pepper and onions served with avocado and salsa is a delicious mix of protein, colorful vegetables and healthy fat. Everything cooks together at the same time. After dinner, a cutting board, one bowl and two sheet pans are the only cleanup you’ll be stuck with.
This is a very simple recipe, with one secret ingredient: a little splash of fish sauce to add umami flavor to dark, leafy greens.
Sautéed greens are a quick and very healthy side dish for any meal. The most common set-up is olive oil, garlic and greens (which is delicious) but this recipe assumes that you want even more flavor, or perhaps a different type of flavor that will make greens more interesting (and less bitter).
