Hard Gainers Meal Menu
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. I figured I would post some of them here so others who may be searching for simple easy to make meals to fill their caloric needs can have some options.

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!
Glad you guys appreciate. Like I said these are just a few, I have more and will post additional meals when I get a chance. ENJOY!
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.

This should be sticked somewhere.
Btw add a few slices of cheese to the mayo/tuna sandwhich for extra cals!
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:
