My morning breakfast before a short run

Running fuel for the body is the key to becoming a great runner

I won't lie, I didn't quite get the importance of nutrition. It wasn't until I went an entire die of barely eating anything and went for a run. It wasn't a short run either. I went for an eight mile run that day.
When I finished I ate a small bowl of cereal without milk. For some idiotic reason I believed that would suffice. The following day I was lethargic, sore and completely out of whack. I clearly didn't fuel my body properly. I ate as much as possible the entire day. It took that one lesson to understand that carbs were my best friend.
“I clearly didn't fuel my body properly.”

What carbs would you recommend to consume after the run?
