smoothie: 250 ml milk, 1 banana, 5 spoon of yogurt
pancake: 100 ml milk, 100 g whole wheat flour, 100 ml egg white

Re: post-workout

I'm thinking I need a converter to know how much food that really is.

Depends on workout honestly but I don't really get that precise unless I'm trying to cut or something.

I'm usually tossing a salmon piece, rice and vegie in microwave and eating. Fish is size of my fist. Rice and vegie is whatever looked right in my bowl.

Some might ask what your goals are.

Re: post-workout

Well 1L of milk is pretty close to a quart and that's 32g of protein. So 250=8g, 100, that's like 3.

100ml of egg white is over 3 ounces so it's around 10g of protein. I looked up some conversion stuff.

So I'd guess, more protein. Maybe it's enough if you eat about 4 of those pancakes. 1 pancake would only be about 5-6g of protein.

5 spoons of yogurt? No idea, but maybe I can eat a cup of yogurt in 5 spoons and that's 12-14g of protein if it's greek yogurt.

I think it looks just fine. Plenty of carbs for glycogen replenishment and some protein. If it was me I would probably add half a scoop of protein to the smoothie to up the protein content a bit.
