I’ve always been a rather slender fellow, and eating enough food to gain weight has been a constant struggle for me. I knew that I simply wasn’t eating enough, and that breakfast was the toughest meal of the day for me. In light of that, I decided to start experimenting with breakfast foods, and I think that’s I’ve finally come up with a delicious, simple, fast to cook solution to the problem.
If you’re skinny like me, have trouble with/are too lazy to make a fancy pants breakfast, then perhaps you’ll find that my breakfast plan is just the thing that you need to kick-start your day, and to finally pack on a bit of weight. Breakfast was the single biggest change to my eating habits, and I’ve been gaining at about 1lb every week; not bad!
The Tuna Egg-splosion
As the name implies, this meal is basically a mix of tuna and a whole lot of boiled eggs. I then toss in a few things to add some extra, much needed flavor. So basically, you need 5 boiled eggs (or more, if you can stomach it), a can of flaked white tuna, some olives, some mayo, and some salt and pepper.
After boiling some eggs, shell them and dump them (and the rest of the ingredients) into a big bowl. When it comes to the amount of salt, olives, and mayo… well, do it to taste. Personally I like having this creation on the flavorful end of the spectrum, so I use a lot of olives, but you can decide for yourself. It’s easy to scale for appetite and taste, so as you get more comfortable eating a big breakfast, you can add more and more tuna and eggs.
Below we’ve got the final, mushed up creation. Now, a few of my fellow writers here at Unfinished Man say that this looks absolutely disgusting, but you know what? Haters gonna hate. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that this is delicious, but it’s certainly not disgusting, and you will put on weight eating this. There are 550 calories from the tuna and eggs alone, and 75 grams of protein. Add in the olives, mayo, and whatever else you want to toss there, and you can add in even more calories.
If you get tired of eating this, and chances are you will, then I suggest swapping out the tuna for avocado. It too is pretty tasty, and avocados are full of good fats and protein. I switch it up every few days to avoid boredom, and so far so good. It’s a heck of a lot more healthy for you than breakfast cereal, and don’t you dare complain about the eggs and how they’ll make your heart explode; that’s complete rubbish.
If you give this a try, please let me know what you think in the comments below. Also, if you’ve got an excellent weight gain breakfast plan of your own, please share it, as I’m always looking for new ways to pack on some weight without resorting to the likes of fast food and donuts.
