What backpacking foods get me going in the morning? I start the day with a hearty breakfast like homemade oatmeal with dried fruit, loaded grits, sweet potato porridge or scrambled eggs.

Cinnamon Apple Raisin, Fruit & Nut with Chocolate
Green Grits & Ham, Pizza Grits Supreme
For oatmeal and grits, I use the unflavored varieties and fortify them with home dried fruit, meat and vegetables.

Cold Breakfast Backpacking Foods
When packing a week’s worth of breakfasts for a backpacking trip, I usually include one breakfast of cold cereal with instant milk. My favorite is Cascadian Farm Granola Cereal which comes in several varieties. I add extra dried fruit to it. Having one no-cook breakfast comes in handy if I want to bug out of a campsite quickly and it also extends my fuel supply.
Many backpackers start the day with backpacking foods that can be eaten right out of the package while they are packing up or hiking that first mile. Pop tarts are often recommended, and there is no doubt that they are consumed in great quantities on the trail, but I avoid pop tarts like poisonous snakes because of the high fructose corn syrup, sugar, partially hydrogenated oil, artificial flavors and colors.
I know that if I eat a breakfast high in corn syrup and sugar with not much fiber or other nutritional components to balance it out, I will feel shaky and on edge within one hour of consuming it. No thanks.
One way to eat a cold breakfast while walking is to carry oat bark. To make oat bark, you cook oatmeal at home blended with fruit and dehydrate it. It can be eaten by itself like a chip or combined with other ingredients in a trail mix. If for some reason you change your mind on the trail and want hot oatmeal, all you have to do is add boiled water. It returns to a pudding-like consistency and tastes great.

Freeze Dried Scrambled Eggs
Dehydrating scrambled or hard boiled eggs does not work. They do not rehydrate well and remain hard as rock.
However, you can make hybrid scrambled eggs by baking them with cooked polenta before drying. The result is something very close – but not exactly the same, as scrambled eggs and they rehydrate well due to the absorbing quality of the polenta. I use polenta because the yellow color matches the eggs, but regular grits work also.
Once dried, I combine the scrambled polenta eggs with other meats, vegetables, cheese and salsa leather (many possible variations) so I enjoy all the ingredients of a tasty omelet in a one pot meal.
The instructions for making and drying scrambled eggs and polenta are in my book,金宝博188食谱冒险.
