    Bulk on a Budget - Cheap Bulking Food

    I know we've had this before, but I need reminding (and some fresh ideas maybe) and there's some newbies on the board that might benefit.

    What food is good to bulk out your diet / calories when you're on a bulk? Anyone got any tips / tricks they like to use to get that extra muscle building much in?

    It's only the protein that's expensive really, carbs cost pennies! Use TVP instead of chicken and beef, and use Nutrisport 90+ to cover the rest and you won't get much cheaper than that!

    I've done well on sarnies. Quick to make and cheap.

    1 tin tuna, olive oil, wholemeal bread, salad cream. Less than £1.

    3 egg, olive oil, wholemeal bread, salad cream. Less than £1

    I've never heard of it either!

    Got rice & oats in the cupboard! Always good. I like a jacket potato with tuna too. Is turkey much cheaper than chicken?

    My latest discovery has been Soya Beans. 35g of protein per 100g, that's more than Tuna! And they cost next to **** all!

    Re: Bulk on a Budget - Cheap Bulking Food

    The turkey mince is 1.70 in ASDA and the turkey fillets which i think are 500g are around 2.50,so a lot cheaper.

    It's a lot drier though,throwing a little chinese 5 spice on it does the trick for me

    Re: Bulk on a Budget - Cheap Bulking Food

    Got a big bag of clean baking spuds in morrisons the other day, loads of em, all decent sized and right tasty - 30 fkn pence. Not reduced either, or on offer, that is the on the shelf price.

    Coudln't fkn believe it

    Oats are dirt cheap around 50p a kilo from Tesco, slightly dearer in morrisons, 1.22 I think for a 2 kilo bag

    Milk is actually quite expensive for what you are getting and the bastard thing is the farmers don't make a fkn penny off it - supermarket greed

    Getting good cheap meat is always a bugger, as someone said earlier, carbs are not a problem, the world turns on carbs - getting protein is altogether more tricky and expensive...
