I want to get some high-protein, low-fat snacks for eating between meals after hard training sessions, because this is supposed to help speed recovery. Ideally I would like to find something that requires zero preparation (so I can eat at work, etc), but any suggestions will be welcomed...

Can of tuna.
Preparation required : open tin & drain.

Gravy - I noticed that there's a thread 'Protein & Glucosamine' which has just started over in Training which touches on this same problem.

Good quality sliced cooked meat - proper muscle meat rather than mechanically recovered mush. My favourites are bresaola and pastrami.

Ultra-low-fat yogurt is pretty good if you don't mind a bit of carbohydrate sneaking in.

Or there's always ready-to-serve cans of good old Slimfast.

I use EAS myoplex protein shakes - for each 76g serving you get 42g of protein, 25g of carbs, 2g fat the rest is vits/mins. This is about 280cals. I also use a lower-cal nutrition shake by USN called Diet Fuel, which for every 50g serving you get 25g of protein, 20g of carbs, 2g of fat the rest is vits/mins - this is about 200cals.
You will find that slimfast has a must higher ratio of carbs to protein.

Google myoplex or ultimate sports nutrition for more info!

Thanks for the ideas.

Velociraptor - I'm certainly not adverse to some carbohydrate, I just wanted something that was high protein with relatively little fat (and, preferably, I'd like any fat there is to be Omega 3, 6 or 9 rather than saturated or poly-unsaturated).

I use Met-Rx protein shakes, 72g, 38g protein, 19g carb, fat 2.5g, cals 240 - mix with 16oz of water or milk. Comes in vanilla, extreme chocolate, & very berry.
Put it all in a blender with a banana or other fruit, good too if you add cinnamon to the vanilla, or peppermint essence to the choc one. Many other possibilities. Easy to digest, and tastes great.

Does anyone have any ideas for a make-it-yourself breakfast shake? I have very little time to fit in my runs and waiting to digest breakfast is a real pain, but I love my food too much to go out on an empty stomach - it just doesn't seem to suit me.

High protein and omegawhatsits?

Grill some fresh tuna in advance and eat it cold.

Cottage cheese. Mix with strawberry yoghurt, tastes like cheesecake, yum! Or mix in a tsp of peanut butter, also good. (good eaten with an apple, chop the apple up and spread cc mixture on the slices.)
