You must eat a lot of fruit.

Oats, sweet potato, beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, peanut butter.

I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of tofu or tempeh either. I don't mind tofu with BBQ or satay sauce.

Damn you listed all the good ones!

Two others I can add to that list are: brown rice & wholemeal pasta

Clean bulking favorites, lots of well-spiced tofu and seitan in massive quantities, usually mixed in with black eyed peas, spinach and/or collard greens, onions and brown rice (throw in some hot sauce and it's a winner!), not to mention lots of nuts/seeds and Vega protein powders. Also, lots of high protein/lower carb multi-grain breads (one I get locally has 6g protein per slice and only 7g carbs), put on some peanut butter or organic fruit spreads and it's good. When I get on a kick for my favorite fresh fruits like pears, bananas and grapes, I definitely put down plenty of those as well.

Not-so-clean bulking favorites would include vegan candies and chips - give me a bag of the Sweet Chili Lime Doritos and a bag of licorice or hard candies and I'm good to go for stuffing myself with crap foods. And, of course, vegan pizzas, my downfall and cause of putting on about 8 lbs. in 7 weeks of not training and eating way too much over the holidays! :)

I eat tons and tons and tons of cereal, oats, potatoes, brown rice. I am a carb junkie!

I had half a pound of whole grain pasta with dinner. Just now I had two huge bowls of cereal and soy yogurt.
I am bulking, so I am eating everything in site.

Peanut butter is always a solid favourite! Soy yoghurt and chocolate soy milk too.

Personally I love chucking some oatmeal, peanut butter, soy protein powder, cocoa, and flaxseeds into a blending and whizzing it. Bulking is so delicious.

Nothing tastes as good as swole feels.

I think I want a shirt that says that.
