Default Post-Workout Meal

Any recipes, combinations of foods, or tips in order to pack on muscle as efficiently as possible. (sans Whey or any other product)

Been working out hard lately, and immediately after showering I want to down something nice.

Usually I just down an apple and a banana to recover glycogen levels, and finish it up with an egg/cheese bagel sandwich to provide the carbs and protein, but nutrititionally it doesn't quite cut it;

Any specific suggestions (Yes, I'm staring at you Hateraid)

I drink this before and after a workout, 4 times a week. Fills you up well, and doesn't taste too bad either. It's a protein shake with creatine, gluatmine, etc, etc...

You need more protein than that provides for a post-workout meal.

DatzNasty has the best thus far. Add some raw veggies and you're set.

What I failed to mention is I usually have steak or fish for dinner. Oatmeal is just what I eat after I work out.

You should always consume 25-30g of protein within 30 minutes of your workout. Just sayin.....

In that case, I'll make sure I workout before dinner the nights I eat steak or fish.

Thank you that's EXACTLY what I'm looking for, and it sounds delicious, with some veggies.

The thing is I want to add some FLAVAH, any nice recipes? Marinated, lemon juice, teriyaki-style, with hot sauce, or just cooked plain on the Foreman?

It depends on what brand I buy on the chicken breasts, I usually get what's the cheapest. The regular ones are definitely bland, I usually grill them and get a great smoky flavor. Tyson also has some flavored ones like Italian season, Greek seasoned, or buffalo spice season that are still almost totally lean and there's no significant amount of calories or carbs added. Even skillet roasting them with just a cooking spray gives a bit of a smoky flavor that is far better than just baking them.

For adding vegetables, I like Green Giants and I get the brocolli, cauliflower, carrots, and cheese sauce bag. It's like 60 calories and only like 1.5g of fat from the cheese sauce. Some people are **** about processed food or whatever but it's no big deal to me. Mix these with the brown rice is awesome, perhaps even add more cheese.
