Ground meat: turkey,beef,chicken(lean of course),eggs and egg whites,tuna,protein(I only use WPI),almonds,brown rice,oatmeal,yams. These all can be purchased in bulk and are not too expensive. The WPI can be though. Chicken breast and steak get thrown into the mix whenever but get pricey. Veggies are cheap and added to the mix as well. I have 4 lbs of ground chicken(taco seasoned) and a lrg tupperware of brown rice sitting in my fridge as I type. It is an easy meal at all times.Always open light.

And just information for you, most carbohydrates are from plant sources (with SOME exceptions).

No problem with white rice, figure it into your macro goals for the day, you're good to go. So long as you are working your ass off in the gym, your body can use simple carbs as well. Me, I like to eat white rice about an hour before workouts, with chicken or whatever a source of protein.

Try Quinoa. Its a great protein source too. "one amino acid that Quinoa is especially rich in is lysine. Lysine is the amino acid that is essential for healthy tissue growth as well as repair."
Nutritional value= A quarter of a cup of Quinoa has 160 calories, 2.5 grams of fat (20 calories from fat and 0 grams of saturated fat), 5 mg of sodium, 39g carbohydrates, 3g fiber, 0g sugars, 6g protein.
