Meal Prep for Divas
That Don’t Have Time For That Sh*t
Listen up Divas & Dudes,

The fact is, these recipes exist, and they are pure brilliance. I have found a collection of them on a site called Greatest! There are 19 one pan meals listed on just this site alone, so the possibilities are endless at this point.
Now, obviously I am not the genius behind “One pan recipes”, so I can’t really take all the credit. I did show you however so, you’re welcome. 😉 Be sure to pay it forward and save someone else’s sanity with these delicious and time saving meal ideas. And to the inventor of “one pan recipes” – the bad ass, beautiful minded hero that walks among us… I am here on behalf of all tired AF people to say:
