Andy - agree with you, getting food in quickly is not the (or even one of the) most important elements of training.  For practicality I eat some oatcakes and have a glass of milk (so carbs and protein) as soon as I get in from a harder run / cross-training session.  I find the milk settles my stomach too (which is weird as it seriously upsets it before any exercise...!).

thats not a bad idea that. i never thought thought of doing that to be honest. milk is probably THEE best protein/recovery drink going to be honest.

Salmon and chicken are really expensive!

Low fat choc milkshake is one of the best post-workout drinks, behind protein shakes.
