I just bought and read The Paleo Diet For Athletes and it recommends a liquid recovery meal within the first 30 minutes, and then a solid meal within the next 1.5 hours or so. The liquid meal is so that it gets absorbed quickly. The recipe example given in the book is to mix fruit juice, a fruit, glucose, and a protein source (powder or egg whites). It also recommends to add a pinch of salt if you worked up a good sweat in a metcon session. You could leave out the salt if you didn't sweat a lot.

The solid recovery meal is also moderatly high GI like sweet potatoes.

I've only been through the book once. I probably have to read it a few more times as there is a lot of good stuff to absorb.
