Meals for Camping: Breakfast

Hey everyone! If you’re going camping and have zero clue what to do for breakfast, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll share some stuff I did last season and somethings I want to try this coming season. I am aiming to make them take as little energy as possible because who wants to expend all the energy making our first meal? Not me, I want that energy for the fun stuff I have planned.

If you’d like to check out my cooking gear, you can do so here. I am going to do a gear highlight on this stuff next week.

Meal Replacement Shake/Instant Smoothie

I am a big fan of Shakeology and Kenco instant smoothies for a quick and easy meal in the morning. I also use AG1 sporadically but I do want to work it in more often because I know it helps my gut. These are powders that mix easily with water and provide nutrients without having to pull out the stove or build a fire. Not going to lie, the instant smoothies can get pulpy, like OJ with pulp so I tend to slam them. AG1 stays well mixed if it is drank right away, otherwise, I need to slam it too.


I love oatmeal, it’s super versatile and can be adapted to whatever your palate is. There are a few ways to do this while out in nature, so there are options. I’ve made overnight oats at home and brought them with, warming them with the camp stove. My friend likes to boil water and pour it on the oats, letting them sit and cook that way. There are instant oats that make this even easier. Personally, I don’t like the texture of these, but they can get the job done.

Eggs (with meat and fruit)

Who doesn’t love eggs? Well, probably someone, but I love them. There are several ways to make them work while camping and they can be prepped before hand so you aren’t bringing a whole package of fragile eggs. Now, these will require a heat source of a camp stove, fire, etc…and some planning/prepping at home.

  • Scramble them ahead of time and put them in a bottle, leaving them ready to pour into the pan. Meat can be prepare ahead of time as well, then warmed up while the eggs are cooking.
  • Hard boiling them and throwing them in the cooler.
  • Omelette in a bag
  • Bringing a bunch of raw eggs and making them in your favorite way if that’s your jam.


Yogurt with fruit and/or granola is a great option for a quick and easy meal. Bring your favorite stuff with you, throw it in a bowl, and have at it. Now, I am lactose intolerant, so I am finding some good-tasting alternatives. I do have a yogurt maker and the starting bacteria, so I will probably start making my own.

Do you have any tried and true meals you like when you’re out in nature? Post them below.
