I get asked all the time about what to do when you just don’t feel like cooking?
Reality is nutrition will never be perfect.
No matter how great you meal prep, plan, or prepare for the week, you’re also going to have weeks where you just don’t have the time, just don’t feel like eating what you’ve prepped, or simply need something simple and convenient.

Let simmer until veggies are mostly cooked through.

𝘏𝘦𝘳𝘦’𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘵: for seasoning I used 1/2 packet of Trader Joe’s Taco Seasoning. That’s it!
Let it simmer until you’re ready to eat.
It makes a ton so feel free to cut back on the ingredients if you’re serving less.

This recipe is protein packed and perfect to meal prep for the week.
I find these way more filling than regular oats thanks to the addition of pumpkin for fiber and egg whites for protein.
The longer you bake them the thicker and more cake-like they get.
- 30 grams oats
- 45 grams pumpkin
- 1/4 cup water
- 160 grams liquid egg whites
- Pure vanilla extract
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Stevia (optional)
Mix together 30 grams of oats, 45 grams of pumpkin and ¼ cup of water and microwave 90 seconds on high.
Stir in your egg whites, cinnamon, vanilla, spices, and stevia if you want it. Microwave on 70% power for 3 and a half minutes.
Transfer to your meal prep container, and microwave once more for about 3 minutes at full power, this is where it will get cakey and thicken up. Let cool completely.
Save for later & tag me if you give them a try.
