What do you eat before working out?

I like to workout in the morning before I go to work but I am not sure what to eat before I go workout. I heard you shouldn't eat anything that is hard for your body to digest. Should I only eat fruit?

Sometimes I don't eat anything, which some say is bad, but I am usually still feeling good by the end of the workout. When I do eat, I keep it to a protein shake or a banana and toast with peanut butter. Anything heavier and I usually feel like I'm going to throw up.

It's hard for me to eat in the morning before my workout, but I always try to anyway. I can always make it through a workout even if I didn't eat, but I can tell that I'm not running as fast or lifting as hard as if I had eaten. But because I like to get up as late as possible before my workout and because I'm never hungry, oatmeal would be impossible for me. I usually grab a Kashi trail mix bar or a piece of fruit that I eat on the way to the gym. No problems with digesting and the energy really helps.

If I workout at 5:30am, then I eat nothing, but have lots of water while exersizing.

If I workout at 9:00am, then I eat 1 piece of plain bread and 2 egg whites, plus my vitamins.

I've noticed that even when I workout early, I'm not hungry. Guess my body is used to eating at certain times.
