Energy snacks

I wanted to ask what yall bring on track days to stay on top of the game?
I generally munch a little all day long and stay w/a light lunch.
You will never see me w/o my welch's grape juice

What foods have made you quizzy? So we know what to stay away from.

Great input so far

I bring Powerbars to snack on, but try and stay away from anything other than breakfast and lunch. That's for riding, for CW'ing, anything goes.

On race days I would drink LOTS of water. My Camel back was 64oz, I think. I would go through 3-4 fill-ups.

Whatever energy bars you like the taste of.

I would have a small breakfast and a small lunch

I would also go through 3-4 of the 5 Hour Energy shots (they really are not good for you).

I would eat about 6-8 of those energy bars in the 12 hours we would be racing. I would sit down for dinner afterwards and eat my weight in food.
Calories go flying out when you race, so make sure you refill, and often.

BabNannas will help with the cramps, but I dont like them too much. I would just take the 3-4 days off work before the races and train from sun up to as late as I could stand it. There were a LOT of 18 hour days. Last half a day was wrenching on the bike.

Dont drink booze, smoke weed, party the night before. If you drink coffee, like I do, Drink a small amount race morning. I would have 1/2 cup. The caffeine dehydrates you.

I miss NC, as I could get high calorie bacon biscuits there.
Although good chorizo, cheese and tater tacos are almost as good

- Water
- V8 (Hydrates and high levels of potassium) [http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/food...sium-foods.htm]
- Gatorade sometimes
- 1 Monster for the AM
- Pickle Juice (day before, AM and at Lunch) [You Decide: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/0...muscle-cramps/]
- Fresh fruit (bananas, oranges, etc)
- Jerky (Kinda rethinking this one)
- Energy Bars

Trying here forth:
- Steel cut oats for breakfast & lunch (Complex carbohydrate digest slower and provide a sustained level of glucose aka energy)


I try to stay away from anything heavy, greasy or spicy.

Bananas, protein bars, mixed nuts, beef jerky, water, sports drinks, coconut water, pringles (for salt and carbs), and during the really hot months I have a jar of dill pickles in the cooler and munch on those and drink the juice. For lunch, I prefer to take cheese, sandwich meat, and bread, as opposed to heavy/greasy stuff.
