    Are you a slow eater? Will your boss give you more than 5min to eat? My boss would never allow me to eat for half an hour every 3h (I'm a very slow eater). I have no other choice but drinking shakes. If you don't like shakes, have you tried protein bars? Well, I take forever to eat one, but a small bar makes me feel like I have just lunched.

    I can eat fast or slow depending on the circumstance, I usually eat fast now since I'm always a hungry pig anyways. I find shakes don't feel me up just quite even though it's a weight-gainer I take, I always feel like I want to eat something big and solid.

    Tuna salad is actually one of my favorite things to bulk up for lunch. It doesn't take much to prep and coupled with things like bread, a yogurt cup, and a fruit makes it pretty filling. Pasta is another thing that is simple to make in bulk, although it isn't nearly as filling :[.

    This might be a book worth checking out. Roger Ebert's book is based on his experience with a rice-cooker, and the meals you can make with one. He wrote this after he lost his jaw to cancer, and has since become fascinated by food. He used to take a rice cooker to the Cannes Film Festival with him, so he could eat and review films without having to buy concession food. This book is all about the good recipes you can make with a rice cooker or crockpot. They can be protein-heavy or carb-heavy, and often make enough for a whole week. A friend and I just bought a crockpot, so I imagine most of these recipes would work equally well in that. icon_idea.gif
