They have 210 calories each and 25 grams of protein, dont taste bad. Any of the workout whey protein drinks could be used as well. Protein is the most important thing for the healing process. Make sure to drink tons of water and only drink these high protein drinks with no kidney problems, otherwise advise dr.
