So from this thread I have learnt that people don't really want new energy food ideas. Just fast food with alcohol??

sorry that would be my fault hijacking the thread with baileys!  I'll be good now and let it get back to the yummy healthy energy food ideas!

No, the Vicar's started me off on food with alcohol ideas now.  How about porridge with dark rum?

You lost me at bacon, vic, being one of those veggie types lambasted in general on other threads.

My proportion of veggie consumption has recently increased because Waitrose have re-introduced their freshly made baguettes filled with sweet potato, falafel and houmous.  Phwoarr!

Sounds nice. Must take a look - but what's the fat content like?

I was wondering about this myself today because it's in danger of becoming my new favourite regular lunch.  (Along with a couple of raw carrots and an apple, so that's not so bad!)

...I've just realised there's an erroneous comma above. I assumed there was sweet potato AND falafel in there, but having browsed the website it looks as though they're actually sweet potato falafels!  Doesn't look too bad actually; I'm guessing the worst offence in the whole thing would be whatever the falafels are fried in, but per 100g they're 12.9g fat, of which 1.54g saturated fat.  The rest of it is sourdough baguette, houmous, and a bit of rocket and tomato.  Hardly Slimmer's World, but that'll do me.

The best thing to do with Bailey's is add it to MaccyD's chocolate milkshake.  Perks it up a treat.


Or vodka ...

And then dip french fries in it

I like the sound of the rice cakes, but without the dried fruit.

It's delicious with or without the added booze ... if you like things like chocolate covered pretzels

Any other topping / flavouring on the rum porridge? I think it would work with golden syrup or lots of brown sugar, maybe some chopped up banana and walnuts on top.

Rapeseed oil. Definitely not the worst choice.

Most of the fat will be the oil in the hummus. Probably also fine.

Well if you add sultanas before you cook the porridge they'll soak up some of the booze. Than add pecans. And a bit of cream - more dessert than breakfast but I bet it would tast great

As my mother in law says "it's not fat - it's oil"

Vicar, I've made the variation of that Allen Lim recipe without the sweet stuff - just the bacon & eggs.  

I love them.

I like your style! It would make a perfect pre-race breakfast for Marathon du Medoc
