So you want to bulk up but want a bit more of a focused strategy other than just eating everything? Let me help you with that. I know it’s easy with an infinite budget but I want to focus on those looking to budget bulk. If you think I’m just going to tell you to eat tuna and potatoes, you can relax as I have so much more for you.
A simple, clean and easy source of calories that can go with just about anything. A great combo with rice cakes are nut butters such as the obvious peanut butter. You can easily find peanut butter on the bulk for cheap as well. If you want to get fancy add some jams.
Oatmeal should be a staple for any budget bulk. You can get it for cheap and it is available in bulk quantities at just about any supermarket. Oatmeal alone is a great source of energy that is low in fat and rich in natural fibers. The best part is it easily combines with other proteins and fats such as eggs or even protein powder.
Dried fruits and nuts
Basically these two combined make for a delicious snack pack. Head to your local supermarket and stalk up on almonds, hazelnuts, and cashews. All available in bulk options for decent prices. Then add some dried raisins, apricots, and dates in the mix and you have a great source of energy, fat and protein.
Ok I know I would spare you the canned tuna as a cheap bulk but I had to add canned fish to this list. It’s honestly just to easy of a bulking food that is available for cheap. I highly recommend it, obviously be mindful of mercury levels but this is not a bad way to go.
