    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.

    (Updated 12-5-08)
    Breakfast meals:

    6oz boneless ham, 2 lrg whole eggs, 2 slices toast, 2 cups milk.

    1/2 C. oatmeal, 1 lrg banana, 2 cups milk, 1 sc. whey.
    620 Cal - 17 Fat - 107 Carb - 52 Pro

    Toasted Egg N Cheese Sandwich (2 slices bread, 1 lrg egg, 1 slice cheese), 2 cups milk, 2 Tbsp peanut butter
    790 Cal - 35 Fat - 59 Carb - 40 Pro

    640 Cal - 28 Fat - 56 Carb - 30 Pro

    4 Tyson buffalo wings/drumsticks, 1 serving Wheat Thins (16 crackers), 1 cup cottage cheese (I like to use the CC as a dip for the crackers)
    670 Cal - 32 Fat - 33 Carb - 58 Pro

    5oz Filet Mignon, 1 small baked potato, 1 cup broccoli with slice of American cheese, 2 cups milk
    1200 Cal - 45 Fat - 50 Carb - 51 Pro

    These are some typical meals that I find myself eating quite often. They are quick and easy to throw together. The totals are based on specific ingredients and condiments I personally use and may vary depending on what you use as well as dairy fat%. Listed below are some other food items that you can supplement any meal with that will give those few extra calories.

    2 Tbsp Peanut Butter: 210 Cal - 16 Fat - 6 Carb - 8 Pro
    1/4 Cup slices Almonds: 170 Cal - 15 Fat - 6 Carb - 6 Pro
