So I'm having a bit of trouble finding a good preworkout meal to keep me going througout my workout. I'm open to most ideas except one's involving preworkout supplements. What works for you?

Exercise fasted like a beast. If u lift early enough. Otherwise ny favorite is a shake comprised of the following
-1/3 scoop vanilla protein.
-2 cups skim milk
-half cup of oatmeal grounded into dust
= about 350-400 calories. Not too bad for first meal of day
Btw the protein is more for flavor than protein needs
If you want a high carb meal to get you through your workout I like the good ole PB and J sandwich with a drizzle of Agave Nectar
If yur not hypoglycemic training fasted is te ****.. Never thought I could lift hard and heavy on an empty stomach but my workouts are just as intense. Try it.. Use bcaa's pre and post
Follow my TREN log
30 min before workout...50g oats with 4-6 whole egg omlet. You have complex carbs, protein and fat.
During the workout sip on a mix of 2 scoops of protein with 2 servings of vanilla rice drink for example.
By doing it like this you constantly supplying your body with nutritious foods.
Since you will be consuming a protein shake during workout no need to have another one after workout.
If you are cutting, I would get some protein and unprocessed coconut oil since you are probably low carb anyways. That will give you more energy anyways without the insulin spike, save the carbs for post and pop some ECA with creatine before. Less complicated the better, throw in some BCAAs during and throughout the day, you are golden.
If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).
