GRANOLA: HEALTHY, TASTY, ONE OF THE BEST FOODS FOR GAINING WEIGHT
Granola is a great choice. It’s not only a tasty breakfast cereal, it’s also loaded with energy, protein and fibre, as well as calories. One cup of granola contains over 450 calories, and that’s without adding milk! A granola bar contains a similar amount.
Another key advantage to granola is it’s quite healthy. As long as it’s not too sugar filled (and some types really are), you can eat it all day long.Add a bowl or bar several times a day, and you’ll see some healthy weight gain happening in no time.
PEANUT BUTTER: CALORIE & PROTEIN RICH
You’ll find peanut butter on a lot of these lists, and it’s there for good reason.There are 90 calories, 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates in a tablespoon, and it’s not hard to love.
It does contain a bit of saturated fat, so don’t go too crazy on this one, but it’s a healthy weight gain food to add to your routine.Peanut butter also happens to go really well with the next item on this list.
BANANAS: AN ENERGY DENSE SNACK ON THE GO
Bananas have the benefit of being affordable, convenient and really tasty! The average banana is a great food for putting on weight because it has about 100 calories.Bananas also have some fibre and a good helping of potassium, an essential vitamin in your diet.
Bananas have a lot of sugar. For that reason, I recommend them as a post-workout snack when your body is after that easy energy. I also recommend you don’t pound six of them in one go, even if they are delicious.
TUNA: A RICH PROTEIN WITH HEALTHY FATS
Because it’s a fish, tuna is an extremely healthy protein that contains many of the essential oils that your body needs to operate smoothly.Tuna is also really easy to prepare (if you go canned), and it works in a lot of different dishes, so it’s an easy addition to your meal plans.
Have you tried seared tuna steak before? It’s amazingly delicious!Tuna is a healthy and inexpensive food for gaining weight quickly, it’s a very good protein source, and I recommend adding more to your diet.
