To summarize all the responses, it sounds like the answer to the question "what should I eat PWO?" is lots of primal food, maybe with some good carbs. If you're going for quick an easy however, the coconut milk/protein/cocoa shake sounds good and quick.

Quick question, I am trying to loose the dreaded 'last 10-15lbs' that are NOT budging. I am a 5'6" female, currently 140, was 125-130 most of my CW adult life.......I maintain and build muscle fantastically, but the BF ain't coming down unfortunately (thank you Viking heritage). I've really mainted quite a bit more muscle since going Primal, but now with the fat now really melting my clothes dont fit at all, ugh.
Currently having lean protein cooked in coconut oil and veggies PWO, should I be incorporating some starchy veggie to my meal on heavy lifting days (I train hard, weights 3x week, sprints 2-3x week, lots of walking)? I am a bit apprehensive to try full carb cylcing with just the last 10lbs to loose, so any suggestions would be apprehiated!
Leangains for more info.
@jennachica You also might want to look at your body comp percentages. I know there's a danger zone with respect to having too low of a BF %.
My ideal PWO meal is a grass-fed NY Strip, baked sweet potato and a big salad with EVOO-based dressing.
Getting protein is never hard for me...it's usually the veggies that are the challenge for some reason.

White rice pudding made with coconut milk with scoop of whey powder and a handful of trail mix. Delicious and works perfectly!
