If there is one season I love it is bulking season. In this post, you will finally have bulking made easy. I don’t have to be as cautious about what I eat. If I eat fast food, I don’t feel the need to guilt trip myself about it. The weather starts to cool down and more layers are being worn, it is time to bulk up. However, many of the bulking recipes I see are low calorie options for clean bulking. What I will be talking all about is getting calories in any way possible. The next time you are at the grocery store, stock up on these easy and cheap ways to bulk up.
Meal 1: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich with Milk
Who knew that what you probably enjoyed in a paper lunch could be part of a bulking routine? You can pair these two wonderful items together. Best of all, you will be getting protein from both the peanut butter and milk. The jelly is there to help out the taste and consistency, as it is basically sugar and grapes. Add two slices of bread for carbohydrates and this meal is a winner for bulking. In addition, you will get about 700 calories with this meal.
Meal 2: Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches
For this meal, all you need are a few items. Go to the grocery store and grab eggs, cheese, English muffins, butter, and Canadian bacon. You can prepare your sandwich like you normally would. However, you are going to let the eggs cook in the oven. What I really love about this dish is that you can freeze the sandwiches for later. You’ll only need to spend about thirty minutes getting these sandwiches ready and they will last you for a week or two, depending on how many you make.
Quick note: If you are looking more for supplements than food, I’d recommend watching the video above this text!
Honorable Mention: Mixed Nuts
This food should be a key on anyone’s staple of bulking items. I love having a tin of peanuts to carry around with me. These foods are easy to take with you, high in protein, and won’t leave your hands or fingers sticky. If there is one thing I hate about eating on the go, it is having to wash my hands after eating.
