Make sure you eat a good breakfast before your ride, maybe 45 minutes to an hour. I recommend a 400 calorie meal.
During the ride, it depends for me , on how long I'm going to ride. If I'm only going for an hour ride, then I only bring one water bottle with me. Anything longer, I will bring maybe a granola bar, and an extra water bottle.
After the ride, I tend to eat a lot of protein, anywhere from 75grams to 150grams. I usually get it from tuna, peanuts, chicken and beans. I also make myself a protein shake (whey protein). If you follow this plan you shouldn't be searching for extra food all day long. This method ties me down very good.
