Shakes for School

I’ve recently started bulking, and even though I’ve noticed some gains, I feel like I’m still not eating enough. I think that the problem is my school schedule.

My days are pretty irregular, sometimes I’m done at 4pm, sometimes at 11am. What I need is a shake for those long days. My first 2-3 meals are protein + carbs, after that I concentrate on protein + fat (besides pre -and post workout). Thing is, I can’t quite find something to give me adequate protein and fat intake while at school.

So basicly what I’m asking for is, what kind of food can I throw in a blender and shake up for the afternoon that’ll provide me with alot of protein and fat? Also, is it really such a hindrance to use whey instead of a slow-digesting protein for during-the-day shakes?

I was thinking
2 cups of milk
2 big tablespoons of peanutbutter
1-2 scoops of whey (don’t have casein or anything like that right now, and I’m on a tight budget)
Maybe throw in some olive oil?

If anyone has good recipies for shakes or anything, I’d be grateful

Thanks in advance

this is what i use during school

1 scoop oats
1 scoop whole milk
1 serving pb
1 bannana
sometimes yougurt, you could probably add things to this if u want and make it well over 1000 cals. It tastes good too

2 Scoops of whey/casein mix
Bananna
tablesppon of EVOO
2 Cups whole milk
Peanut butter If i feel like it.

Its tasty, and its good for on the go.

WHen I was younger, I would use honey, or even flax oil to jack up the cals in my shakes. Use one or the other depending on whether you need P+F or P+C

cook steak (like a ribeye) on a foreman grill in the morning or the night before. Cut the steak into little cubes and place into a tuberware container. Bring tuberware to school with a fork. Success!

Hm so I guess I wasn’t so far off with my idea of a shake. I’ll add a banana and some EVOO.

As for the steak idea, steak is really expensive. Maybe if I get a better job I could do that.

Thanks guys

If anyone else wants to chip in, please do.

I hear you on the cheap thing. if you don’t care so much about mixing P+F+C…

1 cup olive oil
1 cup frozen blueberries
3 cups orange juice
1 banana
2 scoops GROW

I’d rather use whole milk than orange juice. And 1 cup of olive oil?!

Holy shit. Thats 1920 calories from olive oil alone.

Reheated steak sucks. Nothing compares to sinking your teeth into one right off of the grill.

Last semester when i was at school from 8 to 3 i would bring protein bars as a snack and some pasta and canned meats that i made for lunch ahead of time. That way i would just go to the food court area and use the microwave to heat it up.

I eat mine cold. I always found solid food easier for me to carry around away from home than a few shaker cups with powder and such.
