Food and Meals for a Camping Trip
Tips for choosing food and keeping it fresh on a camping trip
Once you have planned the place where you will go camping, the tent is ready as well as all the implements to build your camp, you must also plan the meals and drinks that you are going to take.
- Program the food and drinks based on the number of people who will go camping.
- Find out if there are sources of drinking water near the place where you are going because you need a lot of water to drink and cook, and also to wash your kitchen utensils.
- In case there are no water sources, take two containers, one for drinking water and the other for cooking.
- Take food in plastic containers; these are easy to carry and keep food well.
- Raw food should be stored in a different container than cooked or prepared food.
- Never bring fermentable foods such as natural fruit juices, sauces, dairy products such as cheese or yogurt, stews, chocolates, eggs, sausages, mayonnaise, and dressings.
- Do not forget: can opener, bottle opener, scissors, knife, cutlery, plastic plates and cups, paper towel, and water purification tablets.
- For a campground on the beach, carry all types of fruits. They are refreshing and last a long time. You can also take raw vegetables, such as carrot, celery, cucumber, and others.
- You can also bring nuts such as pecans, raisins or peanuts.
- Bring chicken, meat, fruit, and all kinds of canned products; they are very useful.
- Check the expiration dates of packed food.
- Try to keep food in a cool place away from the sunlight.
