      hi katie174, that answer is really for a dietician as recommendations will be made according to your existing diet, any medical conditions, and your own preferences for example. As a general rule-of-thumb, meals that are high in complex carbohydrates (e.g., rice, pasta, potatoes) may be useful to replenish your muscle glycogen stores, which will help fuel activity.
