    That doesn't even look like enough food to try and get gains.

    It's easy to setup a meal plan in Excel and sum up the results.

    look at the nutrition information on the containers and use a calculator if you can't add it up. if there is not information, you can spend about 5 seconds searching the internet and find approximate values. and if you want to be safe, use a number less than what you find. don't ask us to do your simple math. it would have taken you less time to do it on your own than to write this thread.
