Bodybuilding on a Budget: Grocery Shopping on the Road With Chris Bumstead

Recently, Team MHP athlete Chris Bumstead visited the Muscle & Strength HQ.

The first thing he asked us to do when he arrived was to make a quick grocery store run.

We followed along to see how the pro eats while on the road.

The first thing Chris snags is some instant minute rice. Chris prefers basmati rice. He feels he can digest it better than other types of rice.

Next up, Chris picks up some oatmeal. It’s his favorite thing to eat in the morning, mixed with some MHP whey protein.

Another quick and easy protein source Chris likes to pick up is canned tuna. It’s pretty cheap and easy to store. He also grabs some hot sauce to add some flavor to his tuna.

Chris then finds some premade mashed sweet potato and precooked chicken in the refrigerated section. It’s a little more expensive than cooking it yourself, but are still two really good options if you’re eating on the road.

Good tips. Sometimes I am unsure what to grab when on the road. I would be a little concerned about sodium content, however. Packaged food tends to be on the extremely high side.

I though this article was going to bring some special or interesting info which would be useful, but it turned out to be bland and absolutely irrelevant. What a waste when something serious could have been written with such a title

Hi Camilo,

I apologize that you didn't find this information useful. The article type is more of a brief summary of what was stated in the video. And in the video, Chris does provide some tips for quick and easy eating while on the go.

However, I get your disappointment. This is definitely a topic we should delve deeper into in the future. Until then, I've provided a few links to past full articles that have been published on bodybuilding on a budget for you to check out. I hope you find these helpful:

The last is a guide to meal prepping with some money saving tips. Meal prepping in itself will save you loads of cash and provide easy and convenient ways to eat for your goals while on the go.

Hope this helps!
