Healthy Menu for a Camping Trip
Healthy food to take camping!
It is essential when camping, either at a place that we can get in our car and carry several things or as a backpacker, to plan our meals thoroughly.
The idea of going camping is to go to rest, be in contact with nature, lower our levels of stress, enjoy our family and outdoor activities, but all this means that we will have some inconveniences.
One of the things that will produce discomfort is the issue of food, especially if we want to maintain a healthy diet, but for everything to go well, a proper plan is necessary.
The most important thing is to include healthy foods that do not require refrigeration so that they are not going to decompose. The fact of bringing canned food does not mean that we are not going to eat healthily.
Menu ideas for the different meals of the day
- For breakfast, you can have tea, coffee and/or milk powder accompanied by bread with jam or cereals.
- For a mid-morning meal, a small box of light chocolate milk, dried fruit or seasonal fresh fruit, is an excellent alternative to cheat the stomach before lunch.
- For lunch, you can eat salad with hard-boiled eggs, olives, and avocado. You could also bring lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, and fruit for dessert, be sure that they are well washed. Juices are also a good alternative as long as they are low in sugar supply.
- For dinner, you can eat a tomato with tuna, some type of dehydrated soup, and fruits.
If we go camping using a backpack, and our space is limited, we should make better plans with what we carry.
- Very important to take a bottle of water and take one or two sips every 15 or 20 minutes to avoid dehydration.
- An energy bar, these are excellent, because they occupy little space and play an important nutritional role.
- You can not miss milk powder, energy drinks, oats, salt, sugar, canned food, pasta, and pre-made meals.
