Sometimes after a stressful evac event it is nice to get a warm breakfast, the day after you are going to need all the energy and calories you can consume in a bug out situation, as the o'l saying goes breakfast is the most important part of the day, A full gut also help maintains sanity.

Throughout the day on the trail I snack on unsalted trail mix and jerky, in the evening I eat a small can of heated beanie weenies with coffee or tea.

I fry the spam then dice it then and make a spam omelette, I'll add 1oz of powder butter to the powder eggs add water and mix, I generally would also cook up some oatmeal and have a cup of milk. I have use this method several times in the past along the pacific crest trail, it's one of my favorites on the trail that adds a little normalcy and should be even more valuable in an emergency situation and may help calm some nerves.
