- Please Recommend Me Some Savoury Foods On A Road Ride
I am sick of eating cakes at the cafe and am also sick of my energy levels dipping and praying for the cafe stop. Anyone care to recommend me some savoury, but healthy food I can carry in a sandwich bag in a jersey pocket please? It needs to be convenient to eat as well.
I used to carry Bloks for this purpose, but eating the same flavoured, textured food can only be done for so long.Posted 5 years ago
Peanuts carbs, protein and a bit of salt.
I took dried fruit today instead if energy bars/gel. In a small bag were 6/7 dried figs, they tasted great no heartburn/dodgy stomach and healthy. Get down to your ‘elf food shop and check it out.
Trail mix is also very good as are rice cakes, plain or flavoured ones.
Peanut butter on a roll, take a bite when you feel like it.Posted 5 years agoedhornbySubscriber
I wouldn’t want to eat a big chunk of meat on a ride, surely the low GI carbs are the things you are looking for, and a good old brown bread sandwich is yer winner, or a wholewheat savoury flapjack if you are feeling kitchen creative
Protein comes back into play after the ridePosted 5 years agojota180Member
One of the energy bar makers do one that’s salt / Pretzel flavour, just trying to remember which one
Powerbar – sweet and salty pretzel
Peperami are quite good for a savoury hit on long rides, I also take a couple of those individual cheeses you can get, mature Cheddar is a favouritePosted 5 years agovincienupSubscriber
Is Parkin ‘sweet’? It’s cake but not overly sugary. Should be quite dense energy wise.
I think your real problem here is focussing on ‘healthy’ in couch potato terms without considering slowburn/rapid access and impact on stomach/digestibility.
I know at least one Audaxer that swears by sausage rolls and pies as he can get them pretty much anywhere (unlike Tech options) and he’s consuming calories with the intention of burning them…Posted 5 years ago
Usually eat a bowl of cereal with skimmed milk, a couple of slices of toast (white bread) with peanut butter and jam or cream cheese spread on it. They’re not huge slices though. Probably about the size of a normal slice of bread. I have a cup of tea or coffee before too.
– Typical ride is between 80-120km. Longer in the “summer” if it ever gets here.Posted 5 years ago
– Feel the energy start to go at the 30km mark. The hunger kicks in around 50km, but I think that is too late to be feeding.
– Hydration, water. I carry two 500ml bottles and drink a pint before we start.
