In early 2022, I walked across the South Island of New Zealand on Te Araroa. Every day, for more than two months, I ate the same breakfast, one of the two meals of my day. And you know what? I couldn’t get enough of it!

It’s an overnight oat, an oat-based preparation that swells overnight in cold water. A hearty, good, protein-packed, raw breakfast!
I add chia seeds for a creamier texture and even more protein. All this with powdered plant-based milk, cinnamon, coconut sugar (to avoid the insulin spike and hunger that comes back too quickly from refined sugar), nuts, dried fruits and even peanut butter!
I prepare the mixture in a freezer bag, and once I arrive at the camp, I just add cold water the night before and let it swell overnight.

I usually eat it two hours after I start walking and add the peanut butter and nuts at the last moment.

Preparation: 5 min
 Rest: from 1 to 10 h
