Any grocery store. I prefer to shop at Costco for meat, Trader Joes for odds and ends, and the Saturday market, during spring/summer, for veggies.
The only thing I change, for the most part, between 'cutting' and 'bulking' is carbs. If I am cutting, I eat healthy 100% of the time, with carbs around workouts. If I am bulking, I eat clean 90% of the time, with carbs at 2nd breakfast, lunch, late lunch and dinner. haha.
Get a crock pot, put meat in the crock pot with onions, potatoes, carrots (possibly mushrooms) and a sauce.
My favorite sauces with the above veggies:
- Pork shoulder - Srirach bbq
- Beef Roast - Guinness
- Chicken - coconut milk and curry paste
Instead of cooking rice with water, I will add coconut milk and curry paste.
I don't like normal potatoes, it's a texture thing. I do love sweet potatoes. I will chop em up, put olive oil on them and bake.
I love brussel sprouts, green beans and asparagus.
I cook all of them the same, for the most part. On a cookie sheet, with olive oil, salt and red pepper flakes. Occasionally, I will sautee the brussels with bacon and beer. The asparagus I sometimes cook with bacon.
If you mix and match the above, you can eat for months without getting bored of it. If I am cutting I like to make lettuce wraps, and make a sauce out of various asian sauces and sriracha. Once you get the hang of that, start to experiment. My current favorite thing is to put a egg on everything. Haha. I'm eating brussel sprouts, ground beef with an egg and green sriracha sauce right now.
