I'm a very busy person so I can't spend an hour a day cooking things, so six month ago I made a method which consisted of having vegetables already cut in the fridge and every time I need to eat I just cook rice with a rice cooker and add those.
this takes me 5 mins per meals and it's a huge time gainer but I fear this is not the best thing to do. I'm not really good at nutrition so I kind of have no idea of what I'm doing.
Right now I basically eat for dinner :
- 300 gr of rice with 100 gr of quinoa
- 1 Cup of carrots and Broccoli
- 100 gr of lentils
I've been eating this for 6 month and I don't really mind but I classify myself as an ectomorph and I can't seem to gain weight with this.
should I change it ? And if so, how ?
Ps : I know this meal looks like a vegetarian's one but I'm not, I just find it convenient.
Thanks a lot in advance !
edit : Thanks for the answers, you raised a lot of imprecisions in my first post, so here you can find some more info :
at breakfast I usually drink a milkshake of :
- One banana
The issue is that at lunch I eat a lot of various things as I have to eat with my coworkers but it's usually the fish of the day (around 150 gr of it) with vegetables and rice
After workout I drink this ( one cup) : https://www.prozis.com/fr/en/optimum-nutrition/serious-mass-6-lbs-2721g with water or milk if I'm at home.
I'm 20, I am 1m84 tall for 68 kg and I sleep 6 hours a day
I go to the gym 2 days a week for upper and lower body using freeletics for the actual program.
