    Need good carb on the go.


    I need a good carb source for my 2nd and 3rd meals. I usually eat in class or in between classes. I've been eating some Pre made Turkey breast strips on whole wheat bread, but I kinda wanna get away from bread and get a better carb source. I was thinking of making sweet potato french fries, but I already eat sweet potatoes almost daily for my last carb/protein meal. I am bulking for now, and looking for options.

    What about trying quick carb powder (Waxy Maize) it is relatively cheap from NP, easily disolvable and does taste ok, not much taste and can be added to juice or milk or better your whey shake.

    haha sorry man.

    i honestly had no idea WMS was low GI.
    for some reason I just wanna get away from breads. Oats I have for breakfast, and Pre workout. I'm gonna give the chickpeas a try I think. And look into WMS prices.
    Thanks for the input

    Make some cheerio treat bars.
    6 cups honey nut cheerios, or multi grain cheerioes
    1 cup corn syrup
    1 cup sugar or splenda
    1 cup natty peanut butter or mixed PB2
    3-3.5 scoops choc whey protein

    Mix 1 cup sugar or splenda into heated corn syrup til totally mixed. Then remove from heat and add and stir in your peanutbutter or PB2.
    Mix cheerios and protein in bowl with syrup mixture and spread in a 8-10" pan, cut into 12 or 8 peices and put into wax paper.

    The splenda and PB2 are healthier options to reduce fat and total calories.
    You can also use rice crispies if you want a faster digesting carb source.

    no they are easy

    just mix them with your protein shake..the water makes them soft there you have 50-75 protein(2-3 sscoops of whey)measure out how many carbs you put put them in a bag(also put protein powder in a bag, dump them in your cup volia

    for extra calories add olive oil

    you can drink this in ten seconds

    yes, my point was this is my breakfast basically....for lunch i try to get a whole food source, which right now is turkey instead of a shake.

    i grind up a cup of oats for breakfast already. I know they are easy on the go, but I was just looking for some variety so I'm not taking a shaker cup of oats to class.
