As any health-conscious individual knows, diet and nutrition are the cornerstone of any health and fitness related practice. The inventor of the Bakesplit would religiously meal prep to save time and stay healthy, but found that there was room for improvement.

As the meal prepping community knows, consuming food that was cooked in a large batch can get exhausting on the second or third day of consumption. Dieting requires discipline- but that doesn’t mean that it needs to suck.

Here are some great meal combinations that take your health practice to the next level:

  • Chicken and beets (400F for 32 minutes)
  • Salmon and broccoli (400F for 15-25 minutes)
  • Pork tenderloin and zucchini (400F for 15-20 minutes)
  • Shrimp and asparagus (400F for 15-20 minutes)
