To drink I would say maybe some diluted gatorade. You probably don't want all the sugar at once so maybe 1:1 Gatorade:Water.
Good advice. But if I were you, I'd avoid the gatorade altogether. You def need to eat carbs to replace your glycogen stores but more complex ones (ie oatmeal, fructose (fruit sugar), or pasta) would be best. Simple sugars are metabolized FAST and leave your body with high insulin levels. The electrolytes in Gatorade are great, but you can get this from fresh fruit.
Clint's idea about a small protein shake or something similar is a good thought too. Depends on your stomach, how you handle different foods. I almost have to have some protein or fat to stay in my stomach, but every person is different.
I'm the same way. I have to have a little PRO and FAT or I'm worthless.
Too much Scandinavian blood, me thinks.
Everyone's def different- you gotta do what your body responds best to.
