As a powerlifter, I have to take in as much protein a day as I can stand, but meats are heavy, so I do what I can. One trick I came up with after the disgust of Ramen noodle nonnutrition was using egg noodles. They're made from egg whites, but taste like pasta, cook like Ramen and have 6 grams protein per cup, plus some vitamins.

You feed your dog chili? ... Little harsh for her insides isn't it? .. :confused:
Seems like dog chow would be better for her ... and cheaper ... :rolleyes:

For me and some unsuspecting other person travelling with me....shh. don't say anything!

:( I'll stick to beef. I firmly believe that if we weren't supposed to eat cows, they would not have been created so tasty.

Or as I read somewhere else, " Salad is not food, Salad is what FOOD EATS!" :D

That looks like nearly a quarter ton of steel you have there...about the same as the dry weight of my DL650.

*Impressed*

Do you recall the actual weight?

HAHAAAA!!! That's great!
All in all, I find that meat is heavy, and the original point was that if you're taking noodles along anyway, why not noodles made of protein? You can always doctor it up.
Also, you have to consider that I'm trying to deep an extra 30-40 lbs. of muscle, so protein is paramount.

Why not combined the two for a tasty meat and noodle dish? You can spice it up a little if you like for a change but it is quick and easy to make when your on the road.

The idea was to supply proteins without need the weight and bulk of meat. I go for 3 day weekends sometimes NOT near any stores.

Actually, it's 445. I had just made a good deep 435 PR and was trying to get another, but it took me down to the safeties. It would be a rare event to do a max then add ten lbs. and make it again.
Now the degenerative arthritis has a facet disc inflamed (for 6 months now) and I had to stop powerlifting and go back to just maintenance on machines.
Getting old sux. Except for the camping part. :)

I found an interesting item at Trader Joe's you might be interested in. Yellow Fin Tuna in Green Curry Sauce and Yellowfin Tuna in Red Panang Curry Sauce. It's packaged in a foil boiling bag, to prepare you just drop it in boiling water for a few minutes. It does come packaged in a box which you can discard for easier packing. It's quick to prepare and is very good over rice or noodles. I like it over Asian Buckwheat noodles. Each 7 oz package contains 26 grams of protein. I carry a few packages with me for when I find a good campsite and there are no stores around. It's very tasty, easy to prepare, and the best part it's $1.49 per package.

There is a store located on Roswell Road in Marietta. Shouldn't be too far from you.

WOOF! That's a good deal for 27g protein!
