Courtney's favourite zoats bowl: average recipe

P30 C36 F13 1. Add quick oats (20g) in a bowl with 2 eggs. Mix together really well and add ~1/4c water (optional: add cinnamon and Canadian Protein maple flavour) 2. Microwave for :30, remove and stir well. Repeat once more. You want the eggs to fluff up a bit but not to cook; still a liquid consistency. 3. Add in Canadian Protein pea isolate powder (15g) and stir well. Add in shredded zucchini (185g) and stir again. 4. Top with whatever makes your tastebuds jive! (20g One Degree Organic cacao crisps)

A few modification options: • more volume: add more zucchini (lower carbs) • more carbs: add more oats • less fats: egg whites instead of whole eggs
