You all seem to like bananas. I read lots of posts about people having a small banana before they set off, carrying a banana with them, bananas being just right for topping up energy levels etc etc. All fine and dandy and good well-established nutritional principles.
Only thing is, I loathe bananas. It's not so much the taste, although I don't care for that much, it's the texture. I freely admit that I have a problem with texture of food. I can't abide "slop". For example, mashed potato just makes me gag; rice pudding, no-way; custard, no thanks (especially lumpy), and as for things like tapioca or semolina, pass the bucket.
I do sometimes think that carrying some small "top-up" food might be a good idea, to avoid running-on-empty. Bananas would be ideal but it isn't going to happen. So any other ideas?
