non-dairy recovery drink/food?
I've started thinking that I should take recovery nutrition more seriously. Today I bought a standard recovery drink powder but to be honest it tastes vile to me, possibly because it is milk protein based and I've never much liked milk. Also, while I do eat and really enjoy some cheese, (also fish) my diet isn't particularly high in dairy or animal protein and on reflection I think I'd like to keep it that way. If I use a milk-based recovery drink every time I ride I'm going to seriously up my dairy intake, and there seems to be some evidence that excessive dairy consumption over long periods isn't particularly good for your health. So, what's the best vegan recovery food/drink? (not that I'm vegan). I've heard that chocolate soy milk works, or I was also thinking just bananas + a handful of nuts. I know torq does a vegan recovery package but it looks like a rip off.
