    Bulking on a budget

    I'm beginning to bulk for the first time ever and was wondering if anyone had any good meal examples? Calorie dense meals that aren't too expensive. I'm a college student so I'm on a pretty strict budget. I'd appreciate any examples and help anyone would be willing to give.

    Thanks

    The 'nutrition' forum is full of good nutrition information.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon

    Thumbs up

    A box of Mac n cheese with a can of tuna runs about 2$ and has good calories, protein and fat. Other mentioned things are good as well but this is dorm room doable as well if that's the case. Peanut butter & good bread, raw almonds, milk and I also liked yogurt a lot, still do.

    Thanks guys. I'm not on a "dorm room" budget haha, I also work full time, probably should have mentioned that. But still on a budget nonetheless
