**make sure you get the calories in then.

well here are the following foods i was thinking about adding in my planner.. and a few i was just curious of

-scrambled or boiled eggs

**cool. eggs = good protein and good source of fat. if your family has cholesterol problems then you may want to go easy on the yolkes.

-boiled potatoes

**good complex carbs, especially sweet potatoes.

-boiled baby peas, or normal peas

**let me get back to you on this one.

-grilled chicken breast

**One of the leanest protein sources around. Turkey is also good.

-slice(s) of home made pizza (ham, cheese, sauce, capsicum, salami)

**Highly anabolic food :D It's tasty stuff and a good easy way of getting enough cals and protein in, although there is quite a lot of satty fat in there that you may wish to monitor. good for cheating too...

-pasta (with beef(minse) in the sauce)

**Again, good for cals [beef is quite calorie dense] pasta is quite starchy but never the less it is still a complex carb.

-subway sandwidge.. chicken fillet

Never heard of them [live in the UK] but i'll prolly agree with Orange on this one.

-boiled corn

**Again, i'll get back to you. I need to find out what it is haha like corn on the cob?

-popcorn (plain)

**add some sugar, honey or toffee and you got a tasty snack. not much there nutrient wise but again, can be a semi-decent source of cals if eating is a problem.

-cup of white or brown rice

**along with sweet potatoes and oatmeal, brown or wholewheat rice are the top sources of carbs IMO.

-tomato salad (consist of 1-2 tomatoes, onion and some oil) usually had with 4-5 slices of bread

**decent roughage, phytochemicals/vitamins/minerals from the tomatos. do you use olive oil? if so good. maybe a bit too much bread though. Even brown bread - the 'better' bread - is still quite starchy and not something you want that much of.

any feedback would be great, thanks

okay...so how could rice be wholewheat if rice is a grain, and wheat is a different grain?
