when I was putting on weight, I would make a shake for my breakfast. I've long forgotten the exact amounts, but the ingredients were:
olive oil
oats
chocolate whey protein
milk
either chocolate or soy milk
spinach
blueberries
peanut butter
2 eggs
banana

on fitday.com it rang in at 1008 calories. It was a large amount, hard to get down, but it started off my day well.


On the actual question, a number of strength gurus usually say the post-workout period is the most important time for your nutrition. It seems from your post that this is right before you sleep, if so you definitely should get something in your system after training/before sleep.
