I've been trying to think up more and more high calorie, preferably inexpensive, preferably more healthy, meal ideas.
My weight is doing well, but the same meals over and over definitely get old, and I'd love to share my regular meals and eating habits with you all.

So please share with me and everyone else some of your favorite high calorie meals! Lets help each other out with some ideas.

Here are some of my favorites/most common meals:

<b>Snack: Peanuts.</b>
I've always got a can of Peanuts, Honey roasted or Cashews etc. that I'm usually munching on between meals. According to my nutritionist Peanuts are one of the HEALTHY fats you can eat, so I gotten kind of addicted to them for that reason.

<b>Lunch/Snack: Saltine Crackers and Peanut Butter.</b>
Usually when I want a snack/mini meal when I get home from work I'll smother peanut butter on saltine crackers and have some juice, it's surprisingly good especially if you have apple/mixed juice with it. You can buy a huge package of Saltine crackers for like two bucks at walmart, and ofcourse Peanut Butter isn't that expensive.

<b>Fancy/Full/Delicious meal: (MY FAVORITE!) Grilled Swiss Cheese and Bacon sandwich with Tomato Soup.</b>
This is VERY simple to make, the ingredients are inexpensive, it's DELICIOUS, fancy, a full meal, and is LOADED with healthy calories.
All I do is get a big package of aged swiss cheese, some whole grain bread, bacon, and a can of tomato soup.
I usually slap some Mayo on the slices of bread, stick one piece of Swiss on each slice of bread and stick each piece of bread and swiss in the oven (Cheese up, ofcourse) so that it can grill and melt the cheese in while I'm making the bacon and tomato soup.
Then I cut the bacon in half to that it fits better on the bread, so I have three pieces of bacon which equals six half pieces (for two sandwiches), throw the bacon on the bread/cheese, close the sandwich so it's bacon melted into the swiss... Make the tomato soup with milk, or if that's TOO creamy do half milk half water, ofcourse whole milk will give more calories.
And that's it! I love dunking my grilled swiss cheese and bacon into the tomato soup, it's like heaven. SOOOO GOOD!
You have loads of calories from the bacon, from the swiss, from the Mayo, and from the milk you put in your soup. It's healthy (for the most part), and VERY VERY tasty if you like that kind of thing.
Honestly, I just started making these for myself and didn't even think about calories, I just LOVED the taste, then when my nutritionist asked me what I usually ate on average, I told her about this "bit of heaven" I had discovered and she was overjoyed as she pointed out all the caloric intake, I was like "oh!... right! that too....." lol.


<b>Not so healthy, but a full meal, tasty, and with leftovers: Hamburger Helper!</b>
Is it that obvious I'm a bachelor? It's easy to make (just a pound of ground beef and a package of hamburger helper), inexpensive for the most part because you'll probably have leftovers, and it's PACKED with calories. Plus it's guy proof, just brown the meat and follow the instructions on the package!

Well there are some of my most common meals, if I can think of more I'll add them later. Please share your favorite/most common meals! I'd love to try some new things!

I have tons and tons of recipes I love but I'll just give you the easy mode bachelor one. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Turkey Devonshire (Sorry I don't have an exact recipe here, but you can just make it to taste)

Basically this is just an open faced hot turkey sandwich with a twist. Get 2 slices of bread, put thick slices of turkey on each, and top with fresh slices of tomato and bacon. Then, top with cheese sauce of your choice (canned or from a recipe) OR just toss on shredded cheddar cheese. Pop it into the oven, uncovered, to let the sandwich heat and the cheese melt and bubble. Enjoy!

Also, this is very good with french fries if you have extra cheese sauce to pile on top. Dip your fries in the cheese sauce while you eat the sandwich.

Not sure of the exact calorie content of this but it's definitely not a diet food. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif" border="0">

I like peanut butter. Alot. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

If I had it as a PBJ, it's nice, but you only fit about 2-3 tbs of pb in it before it's too much. However if I put about a tbs on ryvitas, rice cakes, and oat cakes, I can easily eat about 6! Plus I top it with raisins and drink with a choc soymilk. That makes a very very easy lunch/snack of 1000 calories. Hard core.

Also I love chickpeas and other types of bean and they totally soak up oil and the like. So I get a can of chickpeas/ canellini beans, put in a bowl with some chopped tomatoes, a few cashews, loads of garlic powder and then loads of olive oil. That would be about 600 calories and whilst it's filling it's really really healthy.

Ready break is good cause you can load it up with peanut butter, protein powder, dried fruit, chocolate powder ect. Yummm <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

<br />Also I love chickpeas and other types of bean and they totally soak up oil and the like. So I get a can of chickpeas/ canellini beans, put in a bowl with some chopped tomatoes, a few cashews, loads of garlic powder and then loads of olive oil. That would be about 600 calories and whilst it's filling it's really really healthy.

<br />Ready break is good cause you can load it up with peanut butter, protein powder, dried fruit, chocolate powder ect. Yummm <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Ooh ooh - seeded breads? I know their kind of filling so maybe not best for children, but since their really high fibre and also fattier they are good for our digestion? If I buy the thin sliced stuff it has about 120 kcals per slice, I can manage two or three slices toasted with loads of spread and marmite on it so I figure that's a pretty good snack.

For more protein I have a couple of slices with tonns of full fat hummus on it and top with grated carrots, cucumber, spinach ect. Then I balance out the healthy-ness by eating loads of kettle chips with it... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

I got in to the habit of adding 1TBS flaxseed to my cereals which I don't really notice the taste but since it's high calorie and high fibre it seems to be a good idea?! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border="0">

I do eat quinoa but as it's whole form like cous cous. It's really nice if you dress it up with other flavours and it's a complete protein I think... makes a nice change from loads of wheat which can bloat me a bit <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif" border="0">

I haven't tried the flour or cereals though. I'm guessing they'd taste okay as quinoa doesn't taste strong or anything. Let us know if ya do!

I can't remember the exact calorie count (I think is about 1000 cals in 9 or so ounces)

3/4 cup milk
1 pack carnation instant breakfast
1/4 cup ice cream
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

u can add fruits to it as well

When I could get Samantha to drink it she would gain about a pound every 1-2 weeks

Just remembered a quick and yummy snack that's quite light:

Get a bottle (about 250mls) of your fave smoothie (I love innocent strawberry and banana) and simply stir it with full fat bio yoghurt in a big glass to make about 500mls. This can provide about 425 calories but it doesn't taste all fatty and puddingy like the typical milkshake concoctions. Sometime I add a tsp or two of flaxseed oil to it which makes it about 500kcals. Very high in calcium and slow release carbs with vit C and fibre, too!

Also I have discovered that tahini (ground sesame) is even better than butter with marmite on toast, so a generous spread of that gives about 90 kcals, and is packed with protein, healthy fats, and calcium.

I have two slices of toast (200kcal) with tahini (180) and marmite. Thats 380 delicious and healthy calories and it's not that filling.

Sometime I add a tsp or two of flaxseed oil to it which makes it about 500kcals. Very high in calcium and slow release carbs with vit C and fibre, too!
<br />
<br />Also I have discovered that tahini (ground sesame) is even better than butter with marmite on toast, so a generous spread of that gives about 90 kcals, and is packed with protein, healthy fats, and calcium.
<br />
<br />I have two slices of toast (200kcal) with tahini (180) and marmite. Thats 380 delicious and healthy calories and it's not that filling.

I just created this concoction if you are an easy no bake cookie fan!

2 1/2 -3 cups sugar
1 stick of butter
1 packet of any flavor but i choose chocolate protein powder of choice ( for an an 8 oz serv.)
3-5 tablespoons milled flax seed

melt these on low heat till they dissolve together then boil for 2 minutes then remove from heat.

add 1/2 cup peanut butter
and teaspoons vanilla

mix till all is melted in together

add 3-4 cups oatmeal and mix in

spoon out on wax paper and let sit.

other fun additions are coconut shred, any type of nut, macadamia or cashew are great. Also try using a muesli instead of the oats there are already fun things added to that.

they may be more chewy than the original no bake but still delicious

That looks nice, mind you it's a shame your little one's a bit young to try them right now! I'm sure he'll grow in to them <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

I know, I wish he could love them but my 21 month old gobbled it up, as did I. I feel for a sweet toothed family its perfect plus my dh couldn't gain weight if he tried so we try to pump him up with allot of protein in a new plan to help gain weight and really it is some what healthy for a cookie.

I own a salon in a gym/nutrition center and they asked me to alter these cookies to give the recipe too their member on the weight loss program, so the butter will change to low fat margarine and the sugar will either go away and pump up more milled flax seed and add a little stevio(sp) for sweetness, or use a sugar substitute, although I almost think I can do away with the sugar and not need to replace it with another sweetener I just need a space filler so the flax will probably work well.
