Whey omlet(275 cal) – beat 2 eggs(160 cal) in a bowl, add 1 scoop whey(115) and stir. make an omelet out of it.
Buttered Sweet potato(320 cal) – cut 200 gm sweet potato(170 cal) in slices, fry it in around 20 gm butter(150 cal) until its soft, put some cinnamon powder on top of it also salt if you want. (This was my Maggie replacement at home)
Oats Kheer (505 cal) : soak 3 scoop** oats(300 cal) in 100 ml(40 cal) milk for 5 minutes, add 20 ml honey(75 cal) and 1 medium size sliced banana(90 cal).
*cooked oats has twice the volume as raw oats so don’t cook it, instead soak it in water or milk for a minute or two.
** scoop size is 70cc. You can use your whey protein scoop.
Whey Oats Shake(490 cal): 1 scoop whey(115 cal) + 2 scoops oats(300 cal) + 20 gm roasted chia seeds(100 cal) + 10 gm honey(75 cal). Put everything in your shaker, add some water and drink or eat it. (It might sound weird but tastes good)

***egg yolk has 3-4 times more calories than egg white. So, dear hardgainers, swallow all the yolks you can find in your home.
NOTE : Don’t directly jump into a high calorie diet plan. Gradually increase the amount in a week or two to get the idea of how much calories you can handle without the feeling of overeating.
