Need a muscle building lunch on the go? No worries, we know exactly what you are looking for.
You will need the following ingredients:
- 4-6 egg whites and 2 whole eggs
- 1 banana
- 1 cream of wheat cereal
How will this help?
Egg is a bodybuilding staple. It is easy to digest, gives your muscles the kick start they need, and its combination of wheat cereal cream gives your body enough carbohydrates and energy to really pump up your muscles.
The banana on the other hand, is a great source of potassium as well as fructose; this helps the liver form glycogen and helps with the formation of muscles.
Here’s a small tip, to prepare the wheat cereal cream, substitute about 16 ounces of low-fat milk. This adds a helping heap of 16g of proteins, 4g of fat, and 24g of carbohydrates.
Need a fix for a muscle building lunch on the go which can provide an extra kick? Here is what you will need:
- ¾ cups of Broccoli
- 2 cups of pasta
- 6-9 ounces of beef (ground)
Why, you ask?
Beef is an amazing part of every, bodybuilder’s diet, since it contains creatine and has all of the necessary amino’s, filled with vitamin B and iron.
Pasta, on the other hand, provides the necessary carbohydrates, which like beef, are a great source of energy.
Broccoli, last but not the least, is found to have characteristics of fat control; which can be extremely useful for bodybuilding.
Never buy extra lean beef. Opt for lean meat only, as the extra fat will provide you with more energy, and the calories can then be utilised in the gym during your workout as well.
This will prevent your body from burning the needed protein and glycogen, as the body can use fats as its powerhouse, and use the proteins to help in the growth of muscles.
