How do you power up in the morning?

What I'm asking is: What's your favorite thing to eat for breakfast when you are going skiing?

I like to keep it relatively light with a hot whole grain cereal (with raisins or currants) and some soymilk or OJ. I take a mocha for the road.

My drive to the mountain is approx. 1.5 hrs so I usually bring Cliff Bars or a banana in case I feel the need to snack before lunchtime.

unscrew the skull lid, spread the folds of the grey matter still there, pour coffee. kinda cool. if i keep my eyes open you can see the stuff trickle down toward the spinal column.

open, pour, wait...

Coffee first and foremost
Water, water, water
Eggs, with toast, cottage cheese and salsa
More coffee for the road.

Since you mention Clif Bars, have you tried the new Ice series. They're very good.

Ever since I got on this Zonie diet thing by Dr. Barry Sears, I try to balance the calories between carbohydrates, protien and fat as 40%, 30%, and 30% respectively. So, breakfast might be 2 eggs, half of a muffin, and a little quacamole and hot sauce with the egg.

The Luna bars that Cliff Bar makes are balanced that way as well as Balance Bars. So, I might have one of those with me while skiing.

I can't drink coffee and then ski all day 'cause it makes me pee too much.

I like to start with a speedball and some mild electroshock therapy.

Don't you read the ad gloss for Luna bars. Purely chick food [img]tongue.gif[/img] . Eat that stuff and your skin is going to start to get smooth and you'll have unexplained desires to see movies that aren't shown on TNT.

You need some beef jerkey or pork rinds to cleanse your system.

Yours in good nutrition....

Three ways:

1. A good bump run.

2. An Egg McWagon Sandwich and Red Bull from The McWagon in Vail Village.

3. Or a Vanilla Crisp Power Bar and Gatorade for the hike in, then a Red Bull just before dropping in.

Pancakes and syrup with a couple sausages and coffee sounds good, but realistically I usually eat a bowl of cereal.

My routine is getting set ever since I moved into ski country.

I like to have some instant oatmeal and a glass of milk. Sometimes, a banana on the way to the mountain with a glass of water. That way, I get some immediate energy from the banana, and some stored energy from the oatmeal.
