    Meal Plan for work (No Microwave)


    I have a meal plan but it consists of me heating up my food. In my line of work I'm always working outside and don't have access to a microwave. Is there any good meal plans I can eat where I don't need to heat it up? I'm dieting for a Physique competition in May.
    Thanks!

    When I roof over the summer, I pack a lunchbox. A pretty big turkey/cheese/lettuce sandwhich on ezekiel bread, a chicken breast in tupperwear, an apple, a scoop of protein powder in water with my creatine in it, a serving of almonds/peanuts/sometimes both. Maybe something like that will work for you.

    If you look at it as just "feeding the muscles" then cold chicken breast is ok. Canned chicken and tuna. Take a can of pineapple and put a slice on the chicken breast. I never heat my lunch and I work outside all the time. Makes me enjoy dinner more with the wife also.

    gotta find what you enjoy cold...or at least can handle, i'm fine with cold chicken but getting into cold rice is gross to me

    if u can make lean ground turkey balls like a meatball, they rn't too bad cold

    also love some greek yogurt mixed with some protein powder as a snack which should be cold...if u can find enough calories and fits ur macro into stuff thats supposed to be eaten naturally cold or at room temp then that would be the best way to go

    it's become an everyday thing for me....i get plain greek yogurt like a cup a day, then add in about half scoop of protein powder, depending on ur needs u can add in more or less.....mix it up refrigerate it overnight then the next day it's almost like a pudding of whatever flavor ur protein powder is....it's almost like a snack but still packs almost 30g's of protein

    sandwiches...easy to control calorie amounts, portion size and macro ratios...throw in some "ready to mix" dry protein powder you can throw into a plastic water bottle and there you go.
