Power Foods for cycling performance...where's Matt?

My memory is horrible. We have...

Nacho Cheese (debatable because there might be some protein in there)
Alfredo Sauce
Coconut Oil

and **********?

These should all fit nicely in a hammer flask, no?

My memory is horrible.

What side of the bike do you lean to when you're puking?

Are you suggesting that our, and when I say "our" I really mean Matt's, power foods will induce vomiting?

The mixture of nacho cheese and alfredo sauce will probably make me puke, however, the coconut oil might give me a nice tan.

No, no, no...there's no "external applying" of any of the power foods. These go straight from the flask to your mouth. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Ohhh...those are good Dan. We'll have to let Matt make the final decision. There are specific criteria for making the PF list.

Sorry...eggbeaters do not qualify due to their superior nutritional value.

So is this "food" to give energy to legs; or is this some sort of rocketry propellent like eating beans.

It is items that have zero nutritional value, but it seems like we have skipped an entire genre of food that should qualify...

McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's
Taco Bell, Del Taco
TGI Fridays

and of course, anything on the rollers at 7-11

Not true, because after the hours in the hot sun, the chowder factor multiplies exponentially. Regardless of any 'nutritional value', the fact you'll blow chunks with the faintest whiff means they qualify.

My personal formula is 4 parts partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, 2 parts high fructose corn syrup, 1 part MSG, and sometimes I will add an extra sprinkling of free radicals.

You obviously have never had a broken jaw that had to be wired shut.

Blender FTW!

[i haven't had my jaw wired shut either, but i have seen interesting concoctions created by those who have...]
