  • Additions to on-the-go meals

    I'm back at school full time and packing both breakfast and lunch since I'm there from 8-5 most days. For the first 3 weeks I have brought:

    BF - 3 frittata muffins, coffee with cream
    L - 2-3 roasted chicken drumsticks, tupperware of jicama, carrots, cucumbers, 3 clementines

    This leaves me at 6-700 calories. Which by the time I get to crossfit and eat dinner at 7 is not enough. I want to add 300ish easy (and probably mostly fat) calories but don't have too many ideas. Nuts give me the munchies, I already eat dark chocolate after dinner and probably don't need more, I don't want to be eating 3 oz of cheese a day... The logical solution is to eat more frittata muffins and chicken but the food prep time to make the dozen muffins and dozen drumsticks per week is already at 2 hours or so and I just don't feel like cooking more (cooking them takes the limit of my muffin tins and baking racks so I'd have to do 2 batches).

    Any ideas for little calorie bombs to help me out?

    Full fat Greek yoghurt like Fage Total. Dips for your veggies made out of cream cheese or sour cream with opinion, garlic, or spicy mustards added for flavoring. Canned sardines.

      Boiled eggs. Or yeah, a veggie dip made from home made mayo. I am doing Whole 30 and bring applegate farms roast beef and boiled eggs for lunch. Boil your eggs on Sunday, eat all week. Just label the carton. I guess those aren't very fatty though.

      The homemade mayo is a great way to add fat without dairy though.
      Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!

        Homemade mayo... that is a good idea.

        Can't do Fage - upsets my stomach for some odd reason.

        Maybe I can learn to like sardines

          Canned tuna / canned salmon
          Smoothie made with canned coconut milk (or just drink some coconut milk straight from the can!)
          Home-made jerky

          ...or buy some of Steve's Paleo Kits if you're in a pinch!

            I found something similar to this recently:
            Grace Classic Coconut Cream 6 oz: Grocery & Gourmet Food

            I think it's basically super-finely shredded coconut (someone correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't used this brand).
