      I've been making an effort to eat healthier but sometimes putting in the effort is hard--especially when tough life situations arise.

      What are some foods and recipes I can have on hand that are dead simple yet nutritious?

      Below are some guidelines of what I'm looking for. I'm open to any ideas, but the main feature is that it has to be EASY:

      • No prep or very low prep
        • If prep is needed, can be made in a large batch and stored as individual servings
      • Few ingredients
      • Prepackaged foods are an option (so if there's a great protein bar out there or something I'm totally open to it)
      • Instant pot is a cooking option (so if you've got any good pressure cooker dump recipes, let me have them!)

      Any recommendations?

      Lately I've been trying to be better about cooking a decent breakfast for myself every morning instead of grabbing sugary stuff at a coffee shop, blowing money for something fancier, or wolfing down a breakfast bar.

      I'm also trying to be a boring adult and limit my sugar intake, avoid gluten on account I'm apparently at risk for celiac disease, and would like to try and be vegan whenever possible.... couple this with me being incredibly lazy and us not having a dishwasher in our apartment, and I've got what feels like very few options.

      For the past two months, every weekday I've been crumbling firm tofu over a heated pan set to medium, throwing in some paprika, turmeric, salt, garlic & onion powder, nutritional yeast, stirring that up a bit for five minutes, and then ripping up a cup of pre-packaged kale/spinach leaves over it before taking it off the heat and tossing in a tablespoon of oat milk. I'll then eat half and leave the other for my wife.

      It's been OK, but I'm trying to look into other options just to add some variety, and was curious if someone else has found something that works for them that I might be able to piggyback off of for inspiration.
