This is the stage for the remainder of my day or until my next pre-exercise meal, if there is one. This is the stage with the lowest amount of carbs, as this is recovery time period. Like in every preceding stages, food quality is important, perhaps even more so than in other stages. Hence, this is the time to get some nutritious and more fibrous food in as they will not interfere with my next training. Most often, I will have some kind of vegetable salad with added fish, cheese or hard boiled eggs. These low carb salads are high in fat for energy and moderate in protein.
I also quite often eat mixed fermented vegetable salad. Combinations with sour cream and smoked ham are especially delicious, but you can also add hard boiled eggs, sardines on salmon. Such salads are never boring!
