Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
I can't speak for anyone but myself but, I personally like a shake after a workout. I try and have it made and drank within 20 minuets or so of my work out. I use two scoops of gold standard double chocolate whey protein powder with 2 cups of plain coconut milk, one banana, 6 blackberries, and 4 oz container of plain kefir, and 2 spoon fulls of flax seed oil. It measures out to 68g of carbs, and around 4o something grams of protein, it taste good to me, and it keeps me full until mid-day or so, which isn't bad considering that I drink it around 9:30am.
As I stated, this is just what I do, is it truly primal,no. Do I like it, yes. That being said there are a few :creature: comforts that I still like from my SAD days that can carry over in moderation to my new lifestyle. The choice is really and truly yours.

Dinner. Not immediately of course, but I could comfortably workout up to maybe 30 minutes before a meal. My workout is my life though...it's not at predetermined times. It's not hard either. You just drop down and do some one armed pushups, one legged squats, and run around. Not for long times or many reps...just make it a habit. Any other athletic thing you want to be good at, you just practice it (throwing, catching, tackling, swimming, climbing, punching, kicking, etc). If you just want to have lean muscle mass and screw the applicable part of it, follow all of my advice except for the previous sentence.
Let me give you another hint about problems like this in general. If you come to opposing viewpoints (in this case: do I eat carbs after a workout, or do I eat protein, etc) that both seem to offer benefits and downsides without a clear victor, you are probably not asking the right question. You have to go a step above a problem to truly create a solution. Einstein once said something like that.
