I have recently broken out of a very bad habit... Skipping breakfast.
Seeing as it really is a very important meal, and I could instantly feel the positive effects, lets share our favourite breakfast.
Mine is a spinach and tomato omelette with a cup of oats and yoghurt on the side.
The way I see it is if any sort of disaster were to take place during the day, your breakfast might just give you the fighting edge.

I went out and bought some of those pre-packaged "just add boiling water" hikers food bags... I was curious as to how they tasted and what the weight/how filling they are. The two that I got were both the cook in bag types, where it encouraged you to eat out of the bag too to save on waste.
I must say first of all, that the food wasn't bad the free dried "beef" bits in it were kinda more like garnish than actual meat tho, and the sum base of your meal is carbohydrates and salt. So perfect for a few days of hiking, but protein & fiber wasn't on the menu.
At a cost of about $8-$10 per bagged meal, it was going to be too expensive for me to have a small stock of them for when the SHTF... The cooking in bag concept was AWESOME tho... and the bags they came in were tough... really tough... in fact... Re-Usable tough! I have spent the last 3 days cooking in nothing but the bag for all my meals... Once you have a few of these meals, you can rest assured that the bags will survive for quite some time depending on how you treat them, and they can be utilized for cooking almost anything dried (and as I've found out... canned as well)
you can buy the cheap "Side Kicks" pasta in a bag just empty the package in a cleaned out hiking meal bag, add boiling water into the bag seal it, wait 10-15 min... your meal is done!!!
Also, I've tested legumes... White and Lima beans... the dry ones you get near the pasta and soup... why? the high fiber! I poured boiling water over the beans closed the bag up and about 1.5 hour later I had eatable beans perfect for happy bowels... :D
The grocery store available foods are dried just like the camping foods, the only difference is... you're paying almost 1/8th the cost by re-using the bag and getting groceries. I'd say a GREAT way to stock up and save money.
