    I don't even know what I'd use yet, but ideally it would be some high quality beef/turkey, fresh veggies, and some source of good fats. The idea would be to minimize necessary cooking effort during the school year while still being able to have a hot meal whenever I wanted.

    Just wondering if anyone has made some absurd amount of calorie dense soup before for the express purpose of aiding them in their bulking efforts, as I am notoriously lazy when it comes to cooking, and would love to batch cook a week or two's dinners at once.

    Bump.

    I've seen a couple healthy recipes before. You may want to check bodybuilding.com. Crock Pot cooking looks pretty easy and healthy....not to mention you can get one for around $25 :bowdown:

    I watched a show on Food Network where the cook threw in chicken, veggies, spices, and let that sit for 4 hours. It wasn't soup but what came out looked delicious. If we get some good recipes i'll buy one. I hate cooking food for myself, i suck at it. But this looks too easy.


    Edit: Found this so far. Some soups here and low in sodium.

    Crockpot cooking is easy...but I usually end up eating the same thing for at least one or two of my meals for an entire week when I cook up stuff in the crock pot. I use it for pot roast, curry, chili, and beans. Never tried a [whole] chicken yet...that will have to be next.

    I plan on making this shit hearty as all hell if I do it.

    Tomato base, stew beef, shitload of potatoes and carrots, celery/corn for some fiber and carbs, goodly bit of beans for more protein and such, then top it all off with a good bit of rice for some extra cheap carbs.

    My concern is it might need more fat in it depending on what kind of beef I buy. I'll probably get some lean shit, but that will leave me needing a lot of fat to balance it out.

    Fuck your glycemic index! I already had white rice so I'm using it. :o

    I can't fucking wait to cook this up tomorrow. Total caloric content should be around 8000 cals, good for 7-8 suppers. :bowdown:

    Nah I'm just going to mix it all together and slow simmer it for 3-4 hours.

    I talked to my mom who is a more accomplished cook than myself, and she said putting the beef in there raw should have it cooked through right around the time the potatoes and carrots are done. I'll put the rice in once there's maybe half an hour left and just add water until I get the consistency I want.

    The hardest part now will be choosing seasoning/spices to put in.
