Breakfast on ride day.
My menus are usually pretty simple. Sandwich, pickle, potato salad or such. If I'm feeling really motivated I'll heat up a can of stew. If not, peanut butter sandwiches with honey. But breakfast on ride day? It elludes me. I'm not a morning person. Moving around in the dark makes me a little dizzy and queasy. I've tried cereal for the breakfast, and it never holds me. I come in at half way on a sugar low and I'm not nice when my blood sugar plummets. I'm so bad that LSEGH has pretty much banned sugary foods in the morning here at home. Feed me pancakes with syrup and it will be an ugly weekend. Last time we went to a competition I boiled eggs, peeled them, and had them in a little plastic container. It seemed to hold me over better, but they sure didn't go down good first thing in the morning. Another morning I tried boiled eggs and a protein drink. The result was good, but I sure didn't like eating it. What goes down good without any cooking?
