Your best bet is probably whole-grain carbs with a small amount of protein. Maybe a whole-wheat bagel with peanut butter instead of the English muffin? I play early once a week too (on the ice between 6:00 and 6:15) and I usually have a bowl of oatmeal or a whole-wheat bagel and a glass of milk. You're smart to stay away from energy drinks- when the caffeine wears off, you're probably going to "crash" and feel really lousy.

I try to stay away from caffeine the day before, too, so that I can get to sleep nice and early. I usually go to bed around 10-10:30, but when I have to get up at 5:00 I try to be in bed with the lights out no later than 9:30. I could actually sleep until more like 5:30 if I wanted to rush, but I find that for some reason I feel a lot better getting on the ice if I've been awake for at least an hour.
