Being a hard gainer myself I have had some experience in meal making that has not only been easy on the wallet but provided me with an adequate amount of calories to get me through the day.

Thanks for posting T FLEX.. Sometimes putting together meals can be a little confusing and knowing stuff to put together quickly and what's in them is helpful!

The toasted egg n cheese sandwhich sounds pretty good. About the whey though, are you supposed to be taking two scoops? I only take one scoop with whole milk.

The egg n cheese is one of my favorites for breakfast. I sometimes add bacon to it as well. As for the 2 scoops of whey it definitely won't hurt you, I was looking at it from a calorie standpoint.

Thanks. I'm glad you appreciate it. Obviously one could do a search for different ideas but I know there are a lot of you out there just like me so I wanted to do something like this for you all so it's all here in one thread. :thumbup:

This is exactly how I eat my tuna sandwiches sometimes, just did today as a matter of fact. I add a slice of American cheese and I actually toast my bread.

Will be updating the menu hopefully tomorrow with a few more items. Check back.
