Hey just wondering if anyone has any good weight gainer recipes.
I was thinking of doing optimum whey protein mixed with oats and organic peanut butter
Anyone else have any good recipes?
two scoops syntha 6 vanilla- 400 calories 30 carbs 44 protein
two bananans-200 calories 55 carbs
1 scoop of omega peanut butter
i think nutritonally for a weight gainer it is good
but it has to be one of the best tasting things ive ever tried
protein of your choice
two cups of oats
cup of cottage cheese
two table spoons peanut butter
(if post workout) (I prefer dextrose over waxy maize)
if you're really brave, in a hurry, and in need of a meal this is disgusting but it works
can of tuna
cup of oats
scoop of protein.
Dont forget the banannas! Once blended in it will keep the oats etc suspended in the liquid. Far better than chewing a big lump of oats at the end!
skip using milk, and use 16oz of 100% grape or apple juice instead. make it an all fruit smoothie style, a plain vanilla protein, 2 cups oats, 2 bananas. pb goes well too Another option is to use the ON apple cider flavor, add a little extra cinnamon to make up for the volume of other ingredients. pretty nice
its a spiced apple cider, sort of a base apple flavor with pumpkin pie type spice mix.
that actually sounds good, but some how i just can't see it actually tasting like that.
I might give it a try some day when i'm feeling really brave and have some cash to blow.
You guys are blending your shakes I assume if you're putting oats in it.
Are you pre-preparing your shakes for later or are you blending per shake?
I was making my own with 2 cups of milk, 2 scoops of whey, with 2 tbsp of peanut butter.
The peanut butter flavor became overwhelming after a while and I eliminated it.
But for the most part, unless you do have an ulcer or other problem, you don't really have to worry about stuff like that. A lot of people worry about the acidity of the foods they eat when in fact the acidity of foods has little to do with affecting the acidity of the stomach; in fact it's more the potassium's fault. Also, nothing you're going to eat is going to come close to the acidity of stomach acids. A lot of people think eating acidic foods, such as tomatoes, raises the acidity of the stomach just because the tomatoe is an acidic fruit. When in fact, it's the potassium.
Not really relevant, but an interesting physiology lesson for ya!
I buy the 2lb canister of oats at Wal Mart and I grind the whole canister at once (a little at a time of course). I put the powdered oats back in the canister, toss in one of the many spare protein scoops I always have laying around, and then I have an easy to use carb source. Takes about 20 minutes and lasts a few weeks.
I put 2 scoops in my post workout shake and I just use cold water from the fountain at the gym in a shaker cup. Works great for me.
450ml milk 3.6%
20g peanut butter
30g chocolate flavor protein
1100kcal, 50g protein
Tastes really good
I still always enjoyed the simple scoop of whey protein, medium banana, and cup of FF milk, I never added oats but I will start.
