I’m in search of ideas for a quick meal replacement. I work 12 hour shifts, many of which don’t give me time for adequate nutrition. I can usually get in one solid food meal, but the rest of the time I’m far too busy to sit and eat. On top of that, it’s a very active job so I’m burning a lot of calories. Do any of you have a similar scenario? I find that the more I work, the harder it is to gain muscle. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
My ideal meal replacement would:
- Have plenty of protein
- Have good and healthy carbs (I find that my body works the best with lots of carbs)
- Be able to be prepared ahead of time
- Be able to be consumed within 1-2 minutes
- Taste fantastic
That last one is not all that important, but hopefully it would at least be somewhat palatable. I welcome any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
