Best real food post workout?
I ran out of protien powder due to some unexpected bills I didn't get to order any yet.
What would you folks suggest as a whole food post workout if a shake wasn't an option?
I am thinking Egg whites since its highly bioavailable.
SO far I have been eating lean meat and loading up on my Liver tabs post workout.
I think I will have to eat real food post workout for the next week or so.

I like the oats/egg whites, raw is good too if you are too lazy to cook them like I am....Not mixed together though...Nasty

I'd say you have the right idea--just as lean a meat (or eggs) as possible and some good carbs. I've read several times that high GI carbs are not advantageous PWO, so a lean meat and oats or sweet potato makes a good meal.

ricotta cheese has a high concentration of whey. id go with the fat free kind PWO with some clean carbs. maybe toast some ezeikal bread and top it off with the ricotta or something like that.

hmm ricotta cheese..now thats an idea...I was actually looking to pick some up a few weeks ago and it totally slipped my mind. Good call
So does anyone know of anyone that DOESN"T have a shake post workout and relies on real food? I have a guess who might chime in here, but I will hold out on saying.

Chicken thighs or breast with a toasted buttered onion pita...mmmm

yeah I pretty much can't stand chicken breast anymore...i mean unless it's breaded and fried and covered with cheese..lol
Thighs I like. Last night I just had a lean and thick center cut pork chop, with about 3 servings of broccoli..and a slice of low fat american cheese, washed down with 6 oz of 1% milk.
Nice and tasty

Yeh , I like the broccoli too, been on a kick lately of having cottage cheese with chives on low fat Triscuits... good small meal and fills you up quick..

triscuits are the stuff...I couldn't live without them...it's like you are eating junk food but aren't. The Rosemary and olive oil ones own at life.

I sometimes do lean ground turkey and add oats in the meat. I make them into hamburger patties. The oats keep the meat moist and you get some good carbs as well!

You are looking for a good alternative to protein powder because you ran out, has happened to me to lol.Originally Posted by hamper19
I think you had a GREAT idea with the egg whites.
I am curious why did you chose to go with the pork chop?
IMO even low fat pork chop is probably the worst choice of all the suggestions in this thread. It would be interesting to see the number of fat cals in the pork chop, low fat cheese and 1% skim milk.
If it were me I would go to the store and just buy some protein powder to hold you over til you can order online.

I just went with pork chop b/c I wanted something other then chicken...and had been eating flank steak for 4 days in a row and needed a change.
I actually did go to the store and bout a 2lb thing of protien....i need another 10lb bag though which I am about to order right now actually
Too bad nobody needs beta testers for protien powder
it was only 1 slice of low fat cheese, which was like 2g fat..and 8 oz 1% milk is 2.5 g fat.
6 oz top loin center cut pork chop 7.3 g fat....depending on the cut of pork, it can be quite lean

If I ever make a new protein product I will have you beta test it for me ok?
