Race Recovery Meal/Drink of Choice

What's everyone's drink or meal of choice after a race on Saturday or Sunday (and not racing later)? I usually pack a PB&J sandwich in the cooler and drink a Cytomax drink. If there's a Subway or deli shop nearby, I'll grab a turkey/ham sub for the ride home.

Ice-cold flat coke after racing on a hot day - can't be beat.

Recoverite immediately after, then usually some type of burrito. California Tortilla FTW!

after races, or hard interval sessions/group rides:
http://www.firstendurance.com/ultragen.html
cappucino flavor is delicious. For weekday training (rides are approx. 1.5 hrs.) I often carry it as my 2nd or jersey pocket bottle to drink on the way home.
I fricken love to have a cold coke, gotta be in a can, after a race. especially if it's hot outside.

After lower intensity or endurance mile rides, or indoor trainer a.m. workouts:
skim milk

Food - I am usually unable to eat solid food for an hr. or so after a hard race/group ride, but for longer rides or longer road races where I might want solid food (not often), I like to carry a pb&j quartered in a zip lock in my jersey pocket in place of a nutrition bar.

A Pint of recoverrite directly after I get off the bike. Only problem is there are no UK suppliers so I have to import it from the US and pay extra customs charges. despite that it's still the best.

Add me to the list of freaks. LOVE the ice cold can of Coke after a hard ride or race.
Usually, I'm more disciplined and go with Endurox. If someone hands me the Coke, though, I can't resist.

I like muscle milk for recovery after rides, and sport legs during.

For races that are far from home the biggest thing I crave and must have is a big diet Mt. Dew. Races close to home require a Blue Moon with orange. The Blue Moon is usually repeated until the 6 pack is gone. Boy . . . do I love to race close to home1

raspberry fig newtons and ice cold coke which I never drink during the week.

endurance/protein mix with a subway six inch tuna or similar right after the race followed by cheeseburger, fries and ice cold milk for dinner if it was a long hard race.
