Recovery Foods/tips

At the moment dates before and after workouts are the only things I can bring to mind... what do people on here do to speed up recovery? I've been working on my basic fitness level while I don't have access to a gym for July by doing Insanity workouts, walking, cycling, acroyoga, yoga, my muscles are really beginning to feel sore and I'd still like to be doing more. I've used Sunwarrior in the UK but don't particularly want to buy a protein powder here as I'm moving from place to place quite a bit and only have a small bag, and I'm only away for 3 months.

Any ideas or recommendations?

I make Brendan Brazier's lemon-lime recovery drink

2 cups of water
juice of 0.5 lemon
juice of 0.25 lime
4 dates
1tsp hemp oil
1tbsp protein powder
1tsp lemon zest
1tsp dulse
2tbsp agave nectar

Whizz it all up in the blender and you're good to go. It's really refreshing post workout too.
