Think_machine Posted August 17, 2013 Share Posted August 17, 2013 Let's be honest; it is way cheaper to eat unhealthy. Vegan or non-vegan, you pay more for organic whole foods (at least here in Colorado, this is the case). Have you guys ever seen the prices on some of those veggies in Whole Foods? You can break the bank easily, and every meal plan I have ever made was costly in order to get all vitamins and minerals from whole foods. So this time around since I am super serious but have dire money issues, I decided to give in, and use a multivitamin... Which means I can basically make a much cheaper meal plan. I also happen to be allergic to banannas and avocados darn it!! So I need 2128 calories on a workout day. 1 cup of raisins, 1 cup of sunflower seeds, 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of oats. does it. Then I want a BCAA and protein supplement to mix with it; 30 grams of BCAA mixed with 45 grams of protein (70%rice, 30% gemma [yellow] pea), taken in seven doses. I have this awesome juicer and I will add greens from papa's garden at least three times per week. I will buy fruit occsionally but I honestly feel best when focusing on greens, plus fruit is EXPENSIVE here. Also I know it is really gross but I swear fresh garlic juice gives me a huge energy boost (15 capsules per serving.) Most will never try this for obvious reasons but hey, it works. IDK if my testosterone is raised like with those rats in that one study but who knows? lol I know this isn't IDEAL but the fact that I take a minimalist approach to this (expect the BCAA/protein/garlic) means that I can afford organic ingredients! Does anyone see any major flaws in this diet plan and how can I fix them CHEAPLY? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
