I like a half banana or small oatmeal w/peanut butter or 1 slice of toast w/peanut butter. But I only eat if I run later morning like around 9:00am. If i run early like 5am or 6am, I don't eat at all. I just bring a sports drink with me. If I'm running a longer mileage day, then no matter what time it is, I force myself to eat something for fuel. It really makes a difference in the quality of my long run.
You'll have to try different foods to see what works best for you. It's hard when you're not used to eating anything. Personally, I like running early with no food and then having a healthy recovery breakfast when I get home. But, everyone is unique, so you through trial and error you'll find what works for you.
I'm sure there will be lots of advice for you. This is such a knowledgeable and helpful group.
