Pasta, preferably wholemeal, with some lean meat, or beans/chickpeas/nuts if you prefer, and avoid creamy salty sauces like carbonara. I always eat porridge for breakfast which is slow release energy. I love potatoes too, experts say they're high GI (fast sugar conversion), but eaten with a balanced meal they've always been good for me.
