bulking without meat?
I'm not a vegetarian or anything but trying to bulk and looking for the most cost effective route I can. To say I wouldn't be eating meat would be wrong but I don't know how often I will, was planning on trying to get the majority of my calories through milk and other dairy products as well as whatever I can accumulate through pasta, quinoa, eggs, and oatmeal. Will be getting some through supplements but I know that powder shouldn't be heavily relied upon for more than a certain amount of your protein in diet. Is this going to just be a waste of time?

bone-in, skin on chicken thighs are $6-7 for a pack of 12.
or rotisserie chickens at the grocery store for $5.. dinner, sandwich, etc. might last you 2-3 meals?
if you're feeding just yourself, it should be easy to budget :]~ Airborne42's girlfriend ~

without meat = hard
with little meat = completely possible
since you said price is your cncern, grt eggs, milk, tilapia, chicken breast, oats, and RICE. srsly though, 20lb bag of rice is like $10, lasts you over 3 months. this last semester, i think ive bipulked on rice, eggs, and milk more than anything else.
remember' you dont need this 2.5g/lb of protein **** that everyone seems to throw around. 1g/lb body weight is more than plenty

10lb bag of chicken breasts at costco - $20
4lb bag pf tilapia filets - $10
2b raw quaker rolled oats -$7
2 dzen eggs - $3
3gallons of fat free milk a week - $7.50, $9 for fat milk
its easy if you cook every meal yourself, and very cheap

I guess it isn't too bad price wise, is there really a goal for how much protein I should get from a meat source?

Yea I definitely need a Costco membership, if I am going to drink a gallon of milk a day should I go half fat free half whole? Or can I just go while all the way?
