I am one of the early morning workout guys. I get out of bed at 5:15am eat something to give me energy for my workout. Once I finish with the gym I have about 45 mintues before I leave for work. I usually like to have a protein shake after my workout but feel as if I'm missing out in other essential nutrients (I know it's good to eat some carbs after a workout to refuel). Here is my question: Is it ok for me to drink a protein shake and eat some eggs with whole wheat toast? Or should I just stick to the protein shake and eat a mid-morning snack an hour or so later? I just want to make sure I'm giving my body the right stuff after my workout and I know that you should eat something within 30 min. after your workout for the best consumption to your muscles, etc.
