Vegetarian Bodybuilding & Hardgainers
 
A veg hardgainer asked me what to eat for cals. I recommended guac, nut butters, soy/almond milk shakes, and nuts.

Any other suggestions?

They do not eat dairy.

Goes without saying, any/all types of oils (esp. olive oil and coconut oil) for that matter.

Also, whole olives, shredded coconut, sesame tahini

EDIT: Earth Balance spread is a vegan friendly, high fat, dairy free option - I've tried it and it's not half bad!

Thanks LD. Forgot about olives. That's a good one.

This is going to sound stupid, but I have been vegatarian for a while now and when I want to gain, I eat peanut butter and jelly sammiches

Doesn't sound stupid at all. I imagine with a natural peanut butter and a non-white flour bread it's not a bad option.

Why non-white? Depending on the person, if homemade, or the country (due to their laws), white bread is actually better for you than some other versions because some countries stipulate that it has to be fortified whereas wholemeal does not and therefore has less in a sense.

Anyway, tofu.
