I am in a situation that I go through large amounts of the day unable to eat food because I am practically in my classes (back to back) from 9-5 and study sessions where I need to eat something besides drinking soda. I am not able to stomache the amount of calories I need a day in one sitting. I'm looking to add about 2500 calories, all of things that I can munch on easily without making a mess, is calorie dense, not so empty in nutrients, and can last throughout the day is a huge plus. I want it so that I can prepackage the contents myself so that I can do them all in one night and set it aside for when I need them the next day. In any case, it would probably be cheaper than starving at the end of the day to buy food each day, and at least somewhat healthier.
I've looked at adding about 2 cups of almonds a day, a protein shake of some sort (not sure if making my own or buying premade ones would be better/easier), and one granola bar. That is an awful lot of nuts and milk. Not exactly variable enough for other nutrients (but I already take vitamins)....but ehh a shitload of monofat, potassium, and dietary fiber, somewhere around 50g of protein in almonds, 20g of protein in the shake, and probably around 20g for the granola bars.
What are some alternatives that you guys have come up with to munch? Or rather, what have you guys been doing to munch throughout the day?
The almonds is about 1360 calories total
The milkshake I am trying to look for is around 250 calories
And I am trying to find a granola bar that is 250 calories also.
I am still short on my target.
If the granola bar is more expensive compared to the almonds, I am thinking of just adding another cup of almonds to my serving. Eat about a cup before classes start, eat a cup between my short breaks between classes, and eat another cup by the end of the day along with eating my regularly scheduled dinner. Excluding the dinner, that comes to around 2290. With dinner, I am hoping that I can squeeze in at least 2500 calories.
