Looks good. I'd get rid of the ice-cream though and maybe replace the 1% milk w/skim, maybe replace the yogurt w/something lower GI? or have it around WO?.

Other than that it looks key. :D

Thanks for the insights. I put in the ice cream because I was under the impression that simple sugars were key for post-workout... was I under the wrong impression?
