Easy Foodie Strategy : A Cheap Body Building Diet

foodie-1

Look it’s a duck. It’s food.

Being a foodie is an expensive hobby. And sometimes not all the strange exotic food from the fancy restaurants are mouth watering enough to be eaten. Is there a way to bypass the “Expensive” part?

In an effort to save money and time I will be conducting some research on how to eat cheap and still get all the calories/nutrition needed to gain muscle and body mass. Get my money and time’s worth by cooking my own food.

So according to the bodybuilding website I will need to

  • Eat six times a day
  • Stay away from brand name or processed food
  • Avoid Sugary Drinks
  • Eat more Carbs – Rice, Bread, Pasta, fruits and vegetables
  • Lean Protein – Whey protein between meals, and casein protein before bed.

 

Onwards to specific examples:

Looks easy and tasty. A restaurant would charge 10$ for this.

 

What’s for lunch?

The bibb lettuce burger. Looks easy to make right? Cook yourself a $10 Gourmet burger.

 

What’s for Dinner?

Cook the Shrimp and brown rice. And then throw in all the vegetables. Simple right? Now you can save $15 because that’s how much you would pay if you ordered this at a restaurant.

Congratulations. You just learned how to save 35$ a day and still be a foodie at the same time. This method is called the cheapo Foodie technique.

I’ve tried expensive food at restaurants before and I know that I can save more money if I cook them myself and be creative with it. Tune in next time for more “cook your own exotic food blog entries!”
