Nutrition post morning workout

First time poster.

I am a morning gym goer and generally do my WODs around 7-8am.

I have a PWO shake straight after I finish in the gym, but has alway puzzled me, is what to eat around 60-90 minutes after I finish, as I dont necessarily want a full meal when I will be having lunch a couple of hours later.

Any thoughts?

I would go with a dense carb and small amount of fat. Sweet potato and macadamia nuts, banana and almond butter.....something like that. Not sure if you are eating Paleo, so these may not be your preferences.

I am trying to eat as Paleo as possible. You dont think there needs to be much protein in any meal at that time?

If your recovery shake has a boatload of protein, which I assume it does.....I don't know that you necessarily need to make it a focus....also assuming that your lunch would be heavy protein as well.

What are your goals?

How are you recovering doing what you are doing now?

My goals are pretty general. I am 5ft 11 and weigh around 165lbs. I want to get to around 175 lbs with improvements in strength and speed.

When I need a portable snack I usually go for an apple with some sort of nut butter and a boiled egg or two.
