    meals on the go

    Next semester i'm going to have a couple days of full classes and work. I'm not going to have a lunch break 2 days a week. I will probably have about 5-10 between classes to munch down some snacks. What could i carry with me in my backpack that could give me good protien and weight gain, besides the protien bars.

    All I can think of is wrapped sandwhiches, MRPs, and maybe fruits. Bulking is hard on the go.

    You could throw a couple scoops of whey in an empty shaker bottle and keep it in your backpack dry, then mix it with water in between classes from a bathroom or drinking fountain.

    Make a natty PB sandwich and throw it in a ziploc bag

    Nuts. Nuts are an awesome quick healthy snack(cashews, peanuts, pistachios, etc.)

    Fruit like bananas, apples, oranges

    veggies like baby carrots or celery sticks

    If you have access to some sort of convincence store between classes, pick up some milk to drink during class. If you have access to a 'fridge at work, it might be possible there too. You might be able to find a large thermos that would hold a bunch of it cold throughout the morning as well.

    Everyone else's suggestions are excellent as well. Nuts are perfect if you're on the move.

    What I would do was take an ice chest and leave it in my car and have tuna, chicken, MRP+Milk, and other crap and I would go to my car and eat. It was cold but hell I got my meals in. Or sometime I would take into the student center and heat it up in the microwave depending how much time I had.

    "natty" just refers to Natural Peanut Butter

    Non-Natural Peanut Butter Brands (bad): skippy's, JIF, Peter Pan

    Natural Peanut Butter Brands (good!): Smuckers, Nature's Own

    i just get smuckers from my local grocery store.

    you can tell if the PB is natural when you see a layer of oil settled at the top of the jar on the PB.

    also the ingredients SHOULD read: Peanuts OR Peanuts, Salt

    Not necessarily. There's just to much added crap to eat, but it would still have the same affects as eating natty PB.

    Sure it is fine if you don't mind the trans fats and other things that are added to make it nice and creamy.

    I would make a crap load of tuna sandwhiches for those two days. Make a bunch of chicken breasts before hand, slice them up into slices and put them into a zip lock bag, great to snack on. Same goes with eggs, make a crap load of hard boiled eggs, put them into zip lock bags.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    that sounds like a good idea lock bags.

    I usually take a natty peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread for lunch at school, and some nuts for a snack inbetween breakfast and lunch..

    SANDWICHES ARE FOR SANDWICH BAGS!
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.
