Meal Prep Monday - Blueberry Overnight Oats and Baked Tofu

Ahh today is my last Monday at work! Everything is moving so fast! I still haven't started packing, although I did pick up a bunch of boxes and packing supplies. So, progress!

I have a few going away lunches and other festivities, so I kept this week's meal prep simple and light.


Something about winter makes me craved baked good, so it's been a long time since I've made overnight oats. I almost forgot how convenient and tasty it is!

1/4 cup oats
2 tbsp chia seeds

3/4 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp non fat Greek yogurt
3 tbsp egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Mix ingredients together in a mason jar.
Refrigerate overnight and enjoy!
Makes 1 serving.


To keep things light, I went with tofu as my main protein. To keep it interesting, I cubed and baked the tofu following these instructions (minus the option marinating) from The Kitchn. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, this is definitely a big difference from normal raw tofu!


To go with the tofu I cooked a ton of veggies and some quinoa. It was my first time making beets, and it was really easy! I followed these instructions, also from The Kitchn to roast them. Along with the beets, I also roasted some eggplant and sweet potatoes, and boiled the broccoli since all my baking sheets were occupied.


Still trying to hit that Run This Year goal so I'll be sticking to my 10K training schedule. Only 350.5 miles to go!

Tuesday: 35 minute tempo run
Thursday: Easy 3.5 mile run
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Slow 4.5 mile run


  1. I hope your last Monday at work goes well! I hear these overnight oats are pretty popular. I should try them sometime!

    1. Thanks! I love overnight oats! They are so easy to make ahead for a tasty grab and go breakfast. Highly recommend :)

  2. That tofu looks really good! I will have to try that soon!!

    1. Thanks Jennifer! I was always too lazy to press tofu before but it makes a huge difference! Definitely recommend giving it a try!
