    I drink Ensure plus. 350 cals, 13g of protein, vitamins and omega 3 for your tired heart. It comes in 4 flavors: Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, butter pecan. If our cancer patients recover from radiation treatment it must be good for recovering from a long run. You won't be hungary after drinking one even after you just burned through 2600 calories.

    Re: After race drink...

    Right after a race I'm just looking for water. I usually drink a whole bottle before I look around for the line to get oranges, bagels, whatever else is available. Usually within the first 20-30 min after, I am typically STARVING and count on my friends to want to go have brunch, lunch, or dinner somewhere before we head home lol. I know it's important to hydrate, so I usually do have about 2 bottles of water right away, I might have gatorade or something if it was cold, but I don't think I'd want milk. I don't drink milk plain anyway, I use it in coffee and sometimes cook with it (in sauces, soups, etc) and have it in smoothies but the idea of just drinking it after a race bleh. I might just bring a few protein bars with me to my next race and eat those after I drink the water.

    Re: After race drink...

    I usually drink heed or some type of electrolyte drink mixed with chia seeds while I'm working out.  After I'm done my workout and cooldown I drink chocolate milk.  We use whole raw milk (non-pasturized, non-homogenized, lots of good pro-biotics), raw honey and cocoa powder.  I'm not a big eater right after I work out and the chocolate milk goes down just fine with no upset tummy.  If you are having trouble keeping some protein down right after your workout, make sure you are taking the time to cool down properly.  Try getting your heartrate down to 50-60% before your recovery drink/meal.
