Post Workout Meal Nutritional Facts

Yesterday I posted an article on one of my favorite muscle building meals if you are trying to bulk up. I was asked for the nutritional values of this meal, so I quickly went through the cupboard and started to do the math.

When you do the math, sometimes you will quickly see that not all things are as safe as they appear to be. Dont get me wrong this is still a good meal for bulking, but the italian dressing surprised me. Use it lightly, just for taste and you will be fine.

Some say the refined carbs in the pasta are a bad idea. If refined carbs bothers you, simply use wheat pasta. I have no problem or guilt from ingesting refined carbohydrates.

So without further delay, here is the nutrional makeup for the meal made yesterday.
