    Sausage & Veggies Sheet Pan

    While reviewing feedback from my HBA (Hormone Balance Academy) students I heard loud and clear that they would like more assistance with putting together balanced meals. I love to cook, but I also like to keep things simple—quick meals with no complicated ingredients & that’s what I’ll be sharing with you all here! So what makes up a balanced meal? Ensuring that you have all major macros represented: protein, fat, fiber, & carbs.
