Meal Planning for Camping

Camping Meal PlaningSome of the most delicious food you will have camping can be prepared using the campfire!  Everything from proteins, carbs, and veggies can be grilled/baked/fried using the open fire.  A well balanced meal is easy if you are prepared for your trip.

1. Plan ahead.  Know what you are going to make for each meal of your trip.  Think easy and simple, but nutritious.

2. If you are using a cooler to store your food, use all perishable meats and dairy within the first few days to make sure they stays fresh before you consume them.   If you have a trailer with a fridge, you are lucky, and you don’t need to worry about speedy consumption.

3. Bring lots of tin foil with you as you can wrap almost anything in it for baking over/or in the fire.

4. Don’t forget to bring a large basin to wash your dishes etc with after your meals.
