This thread is for convenient, calorie packed foods/snacks/meals. Convenience is key, tastiness is key, "cleanliness" is not as long as it isn't full of trans fat. Low cost is a plus. High protein is a plus, but not totally required in this thread. The kind of stuff you can eat when you have no appetite. Give me your favorites.
PB&J Sandwich. I prefer Skippy over the natty stuff and I layer it on thick(actually Walmart brand is very good too). I use high protein bread that has 7g/slice. Feel free to use honey or sliced banana if jelly gets boring. Goes great with a tall glass of milk.
Cold Macaroni Salad/Potato Salad. Yes, those big tubs in the grocery store. TONS of cals in just a 1/2 cup serving. Cottage cheese is great stirred into it for extra protein. So much mayo, it's very easy to overeat on this stuff.
Chef Boyardee. Jumbo Spaghetti & Meatballs are just 86 cents and they even come in an easy open can. I don't even bother heating them up. 540 cals, 24g protein. The Overstuffed Ravioli & 99%FF Ravioli are lower in fat, if you're into that kinda thing.
Whole Milk. 1 quart has 600 cals & 32g protein. Nuff said.
Trail Mix. I buy the Walmart brand. Nuts, raisins, m&ms. 160 cals in just 3 tablespoons.
Baked Beans. A can of Bush's Southern Pit BBQ has 850 cals. 30g protein, 30g fiber. If you're really poor you'll buy a can of generic too and mix them together.
Simply Asia Noodle Bowls. Incredibly overpriced for what they are (about $2.50/bowl for flavored noodles), but frickin delicious and literally ready to eat after 2min in the microwave. 79g carbs/14g protein/410 cals. I love eating these after a workout. I like every flavor I've tried.
McDouble. Since the DBL Cheese is now $1.20, you gotta get a McDouble for a buck, which is the same thing with only 1 slice of cheese. Still a good buy. Skipping the fries is my way of eating "clean".
