    I have yet to find a food that noticably gives me a better available energy source that boiled potatoes. It could be my imagination but I really believe I can tell a difference over, say, rice/pasta.

      How about this: oatmeal cooked in soy milk, stir in sliced banana and raisins, dollup of greek yoghurt on top, drip honey over it and some crushed cashew nuts.

        I am with Dutchie, I love Oatmeal and Honey for breakfast before my long runs. I can tell the difference with that.

          That's a popular item at aid stations on ultras--boiled potatoes and a tray of salt to dip them in. Doesn't sound too good but, trust me, in the late stages of a long race it really hits the spot! That, and chicken noodle soup if it's cold, are my favorites.
