Getting 5 or 6 meals into your day when you are a bodybuilder can only come from adding snacks between your meals. These snacks need to be prepared before you leave home so that you do not resort to junk food. The options of what snacks you have are endless and will depend on your own specific taste.
For example if you are the kind of person who likes the combination of peanut butter and banana then you might like the idea of making a healthy roll-up out of it. Simply add 1 or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter which you would the spread on a whole-wheat pita or a soft tortilla.
You would then add a banana, which is sliced and then wrapped up. This makes a very easy quick snack with all the nutrients required and it will easily fit into a lunch box or a Tupperware container. Although this snack may lack a bit of protein that you may require it provides all the required macronutrients you will need to build muscle.
Protein pancakes are a great idea as they are easy to carry in a Tupperware container and are tasty and easy as a snack. You can easily whip these up before you leave home or prepare them the night before. You will need 1 cup of oatmeal, a cup of cottage cheese, a cup of egg whites and 2 scoops of your favorite protein powder.
Simply mix this all up in a blender or with a fork in a dish and the place them on a pre-heated pan with non-stick spray as it uses less calories than oil or butter. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and then flip for 2 minutes and you would have made 5 or 6 large pancakes using the above ingredients.
The last idea for a high quality protein snack during your day is using cottage cheese and apple, which makes a great combination. The apple gives you the vitamin C and the fiber and the cottage cheese gives you the good quality milk protein that together make a tasty and healthy snack.
