Rando en autonomie vegan menus

A few weeks ago, we hiked on one of New Zealand’s great walks around Lake Waikaremoana. The hike is done in 4 days and 3 nights. Before leaving, we prepared our vegan and homemade menus for every day with a hearty breakfast, a cold snack and a hearty and hot dinner. Here are our menus and what was in our backpacks.

Our vegan menus for 4 days of hiking :

day 1

overnight oat vegan recette rando

BREAKFAST: overnight oat with chia seeds and apples. A preparation without cooking that you let swell overnight in vegetable milk (or water if you want to make it even lighter) for a hearty and protein-rich breakfast.

-> The recipe of the overnight oat

COLLATION: an avocado toast on multi-grain crackers. 

DINNER: polenta and express dhal of red lentils. We put the preparations in two reusable freezer bags: one for the polenta that we cook with water, and the second for the lentils and spices to which we add a can of diced tomatoes.

-> The recipe for polenta and dhal

day 2
