Given that I used to 'miss' meals because I forgot to eat (notice how you do so when you spend hours on the computer?
), I've started to change my eating pattern to the following, but it still needs some work and that's what I ask of you here in the Fitness forum:
Now it's usually either porridge with banana mixed into it, OR some poached eggs on toast with some ham/mushrooms. I would previously miss this entirely !
I eat an apple or an orange but usually nothing more. I guess unsalted nuts would be good but when supermarkets seem to charge £2.50 for a tiny bag I don't really buy them =/
Honestly - it's usually 2 jacket potatoes with cheese, and a bit of salad by the side. I need more variety here please!!
I've probably read something wrong on a website somewhere but here I have peanut butter (some Meridian stuff that just has 2 ingredients or something) and sliced banana on wholegrain toast. (<-- is wholegrain/wholemeal toast worth the extra money?)
If I can afford it I try to eat chicken at least three times a week which is either in the form of making a curry + rice, or just cooking the breasts with a sauce and eating it with some boiled potatoes. I don't eat seafood (don't ask!!) so other things I might have pasta for dinner a couple of times.
This probably seems f-all to you in terms of what I eat but I honestly did used to eat waaaay less. So I really want actual meal advice and things to eat in the mid-morning/mid-afternoon "gaps". I'm mainly interested in how to balance "Healthy Eating" with "Objectively Eating to Gain Weight" - some of the things I read on the internet for healthy eating seem quite similar to what you are advised to eat to gain weight!
