I like to do quick, simple, and cheap meals as much as possible.
And I love to make sure that the meals taste delicious.
Below is a picture of the vegan bodybuilding meal that I had last night for dinner, which was black beans with white rice and salsa.
This meal is vegan. It tasted good, and allowed me to get in a good amount of carbohydrates and protein.
How did I make it?
I washed the rice and put it in the rice cooker.
Left the rice to cook for 20 minutes.
Heated them in a saucepan and added salt to taste.
Served straight from the bottle since it was pre-made.
*These costs are based on the price that I paid in Australian dollars at Woolworths supermarket.
You should be able to get 3 full meals out of this.
Estimated cost per serving – $2.35
If you count 4 servings with one as less than half a meal, it works out to $1.76 per meal.
I typically aim to keep my meals to less than $3 per serving. This one ticks the box for me in terms of getting the macros in and if you are doing physical activities or training during the day.
