Sheet pan meals are a trend I embrace because they are simple and speedy to prepare, they look beautiful, and they can be adjusted to your own personal tastes.
Here I use rainbow trout because it can often be sourced locally and it is a fantastic source of omega-3 fats, vitamin D, and protein. In fact, rainbow trout recently made the list for the top 100 healthiest foods. Boost the nutrient content of your meal further by choosing brightly coloured vegetables.
If you prepare this meal on a rest day opt for veggies with a higher water content like zucchini, tomatoes, and mushrooms. If you plan to enjoy your sheet pan trout after a workout, include starchy veggies like sweet potato or baby potatoes. Most of all, be creative and have fun. Happy fueling!
