Backpacking Oatmeal

Share on:

I created this recipe for a bike ride from Pittsburgh to DC. This recipe should make 2 people very full, and give you the mix of carbs and protein that you need for a long day of biking or hiking. It’s quick to prepare, and effortless to cook at camp. If this meal is for 1 person, just halve the recipe when packing. If packing for a multi-day trip, use a bag for each day to simplify cooking. I use a Nalgene® bottle to measure the water.



Step: 1

Combine oats, chia seeds, almonds, brown sugar, powdered peanut butter, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and salt in a sandwich bag before your trip.

Step: 2

Bring water to a boil in a pot. Pour the oatmeal mixture into the pot and briefly stir. Remove from heat. Cover until water is fully absorbed, about 5 minutes. Stir in peanut butter.

Eating good breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and bring me power to take on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your stomach system and make keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the street food before break .

Making fruit a morning habit is easy . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the table next to your cereal bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.

Giving your stomach energy a bit of sweetness in the morning is important to move your metabolism for the day and fuel to your brain, which, incidentally, requires a continuous supply of sweetness in the way of process glucose, counting at to around 120g daily. There is also substantial evidence to support the idea that a diet high in fibre can lowering your risk of a count of of cancers. And of course, you benefit from all the other vitamins and antioxidants in fruit, which keep you powerfull and healthy.
