    I carry a cooler, so just about anything is portable. Tuna, chicken breast, hard boiled eggs, protein powder, and mrps are some of the things I'm usually seen with.

    here's something i make that's really good. put it in the freezer, and it's kind of like anabolic soft serve

    cottage cheese, brewer's yeast, fruit (slices of banana, or blueberry, or something), yogurt, scoop or two of protein powder

    mix em together and freeze

    got it all. anti-ox, proteins, all the benefits of brewers yeast, etc.

    if you are SUPER hardcore, you can add liver powder.

    My personal favorite has become cans of chicken or turkey breast. You can usually find them with pop-tops (like on a Coke can), so no need for a can opener. They tend to stink less than tuna, too. About 30-35 grams of protein a pop, and you can easily cart them around.

    Just stock up when they go on sale.

    The low fat and low sodium chicken cans are great. They practically last forever too. The ones I have expire 2008 lol.

    Beef Jerky is a good low-fat source of protien (and sodium lol).

    Where do you get those, the ones I get from Costco are great but they are LOADED with sodium. They are the Chicken of the sea brand.

    Yeah, you can never go wrong w/ a BJ.

    Hahaha.

    Anyway, I like the low fat string cheese. One has 9 g of protein, so I take 4 or 5 to work to eat a few in between meals.

    The ones I get I think are the brand "Valley Fresh". 98% fat free and low sodium, 30 grams of protein for a small can with the ez open stud on top. I get them at my local Tom Thumb (a Safeway grocery store).

    I get the can of Valley Fresh chicken (dump out the water) and dump it on a small mound of brown rice. I then get my bottle of crushed red pepper and mix it up good. It's a pretty good meal.

    Theres also the brand "Swanson". Tyson canned chicken is pretty good. The Valley Fresh doesn't really bother me, it tastes fine to me.

    This sounds really good. What amounts of everything do you use? I usually like to just throw stuff together, but if I try this and it sucks, I don't want to have to try it again to see if I screwed up or not.
