Bulking on a budget/crunched for time tips?

Recommended Posts

Ok, here's the scenario...


First off, I'm 6' 2", 185 lbs of hardgainer. Secondly, I work at a very active job (cooking for a retirement community, getting 17000 steps a day easy).


Here's the break down of my daily eats:

4:40am Breakfast: 2 homemade breakfast bars (recipe is: 10 cups peanut butter, 2 c oats, 2 c ground flax seed, 2c walnut pieces, 2c raisins, 1c maple syrup, 2 packets amazing greens superfoods with 20g protien, yields 24 bars) with choco almond milk and vitamins plus b12 spray.


8:30 am snack: homemade protien peanut butter cup


10:30 am lunch: 2 bananas with red lentil salad (1/3c red lentils, some chopped up green bell pepper, green onion, tomato, coconut oil, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, seasonings) and a 12 Oz bottled water


1pm snack: homemade protein peanut butter cup


3:30pm after workout meal: 30g/420 cal protien shake, then a 20g/150cal protien drink with banana, 1/2c raisins, 10g/150cal Greek style almond yogurt, 1/2 bag kale chips, 1/2c peanuts.


5pm dinner: usually a large plate of pasta or LG baked potato with cooked frozen veggy and added a slice or 2 of bread with vegan butter spread, 8oz apple juice, plus a heavy vegan dessert.


Sounds like a lot but I need to improve on this, any tips?
