5 Healthy Foil Pack Meal Prep Dinners | How to Make Foil Packets in the Oven!


(upbeat music)
– Hey munchies, welcome to the channel.
If you’re new, I’m Alyssia,
and I am so happy you’re here.
Today I have got some foil
packet dinners to share with you.
I first shared these earlier in the year
in a meal prep video and
you guys wanted more,
so I figured why not do a
whole video with some ideas.
You are going to see four here
and I’ve got a free e-book
with all of these dinners
as well as two more.
So you get six total that you can get
using the link in the description.
It doesn’t cost you anything.
So, what are foil packet dinners?
Pretty much, you season the
components of your meal,
put them into a packet of foil, and voila.
You can meal prep them for
a couple of days in advance
or you can make them the night of
and the foil packet goes straight
into the oven, easy peasy.
Now, if you aren’t a foil fan,
you can still use these recipes
and just bake them on a
sheet pan over a parchment
using the same recipe
and the same bake time.
First up, I have got a barbecue
chicken pineapple bowl.
(upbeat music)
It starts by brushing down the chicken
with some barbecue sauce.
I use one that has less added sugar,
but you can use whatever you prefer.
Then I toss fresh pineapple,
sweet potato cubes, broccoli,
and garlic cloves with oil,
garlic powder, onion powder,
paprika, and salt and pepper.
(upbeat music)
Time time pack them.
I have found two pieces of foil
helps me leave a little
bit more space at the top.
I distribute the veggies
into four packets,
followed by the chicken breasts,
and then I can close it up.
Now, there is no magic
method for closing it,
but if you can seal it shut
while also leaving some space up top
for the steam to gather,
then it helps to cook.
All of these meals roast
at 400 degrees Fahrenheit,
easy peasy.
Until the chicken is cooked through,
use a thermometer to
check if you’re uncertain.
It should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
And the vegetables should be tender.
So easy.
And in one meal I have
protein, veggies, and carbs.
That barbecue sauce is only on the chicken
but because it’s steaming in that packet,
the veggies get a hint of
the natural sweetness too.
It is so fun.
I am excited to share three more
foil packet dinners with you,
but I’ve gotta remind you
to subscribe to the channel
for more healthy recipes, free
e-books, and meal prep videos
because I have got so much
coming for you this fall.
And don’t forget to hit the bell
so you actually get the notifications.
Okay, next up, sesame salmon and veggies.
(upbeat music)
I start by mixing together some oil,
coconut aminos, or soy sauce if preferred,
and some avocado oil as
well as a pinch of salt,
depending on your soy
sauce sodium situation,
and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Transfer to a bag or a
dish with the salmon filets
to marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.
You don’t really wanna marinate
fish for longer than that.
Remove the filets and toss your vegetables
with that remaining marinade.
It is good stuff and it
doesn’t need to be wasted.
Along with a little bit
more avocado oil and salt.
I used green beans and mushrooms
because they cook more quickly
and the salmon is going to
take less time in the oven.
Onto the foil the veggies go,
followed by the salmon
and some sesame seeds.
Close the packets, sealing,
but again leaving a little bit of space
for the steam to gather,
and roast until the fish
is flaky as desired.
I think seafood works super well
in these foil packet
dinners and it’s so fast.
I served this with meal-prepped quinoa,
which made for a balanced meal
with carbs, protein,
healthy fats, and veggies.
I’ve got another seafood option.
Lemon pesto shrimp and veggies.
(gentle music)
First, I simply tossed shrimp with pesto.
I do have a video sharing my
homemade pesto without dairy.
If you want it, I’ll link it below.
And then I tossed my veggies of choice.
I used zucchini, bell pepper,
cherry tomatoes, and corn kernels.
You can use fresh, canned, or frozen.
With some oil, salt and pepper,
and a bit of lemon juice.
Add the vegetables to the foil,
followed by lemon slices and the shrimp.
Close the packets and roast
until the shrimp are pick and opaque.
This might be my favorite one of the day.
Not only are the shrimp perfectly tender,
not rubbery at all,
but the vegetables are just tender enough
without being overdone.
It is so simple, light, and fresh.
Last, I’m sharing a Mexican tofu bowl.
Meatless Monday, anyone?
(upbeat music)
I pressed the tofu before
cutting it into cubes
to get out as much of
the moisture as I could.
Then I tossed bell peppers,
onion, and jalapeño,
with tofu cubes, avocado
oil, and taco seasoning.
It’s so easy.
Into the packets they go,
and then into the oven.
In the meantime, you can
make your yellow rice,
or I prefer to have it meal-prepped
because it is easy to reheat,
and rice lasts a week when prepped,
so it’s a great meal prep food.
This is so good as is, but I
love it with the yellow rice.
You could totally serve it on its own
or with any other grain,
and it is also great with avocado.
And there are your foil packet dinners.
Check out my sausage and veggies packet
and my other sprouts meal prep video,
which I have linked below.
And all of these recipes
plus my oven foil packet
stake and potatoes recipe
are in the free e-book linked
in the description box.
If you want more recipes like this,
let me know what you would
like to see in the comments.
Thank you so much for being
here, I will see you next week.
And remember, it’s all a
matter of mind over munch.

    I would do some research on aluminum if I were you. Not trying to be mean, just concerned for you and all your followers. It's Very very bad for you. Check aluminum and Alzheimer's.

    Looks great! The only thing I usually make in foil packets is salmon topped with a tomato, herb, and lemon mixture. Giada DiLaurentiis recipe, I think. I'll have to try putting veggies in with it

    There's only one problem, though. You shouldn't be cooking anything inside of aluminum foil, because the aluminum transfers to the food during cooking! Aluminum is linked to Alzheimer's.

    Reply
  38. ohmy love Posted on August 24, 2019 at 3:53 pm

    Sorry this is NOT healthy at all people. Food cooked in aluminum can give you Alzheimer and Scented candles could give you lung cancer. Gosh. I want people to be healthy.
