Camping Food Ideas For Your Next Camping Trip? Consider a Picnic!


The more camping food ideas you have, the better your camping trip will be, so let’s get going and start brainstorming.
When you’re ready, all you have to do is toss them on the grill or cook stove for about 20 minutes or so and you’ll have a perfectly done chicken meal.
The key is to ensure that you have single servings in each packet for optimum results.
Add onions and butter or olive oil for a great, home cooked meal.

Think you can’t eat fish while you’re out? Think again: you can prepare your favorite fish the way you prepared your chicken and that’s healthy camping eating at its best.
Prepare pancake batter before you leave home, but make sure to keep it cold and grilled cheese is portable and easy to make.

Another camping food idea is to brown some ground beef or turkey and store it, when it’s time to cook, add chopped onion, kidney beans and a can of chili beans.
You can serve this over rice or on its own, depending on your tastes.
Very easy and very portable.
The beauty part of it is that you don’t have to be locked into the same old meals because you can prepare these in advance and pack them in individual packets.
You can accomplish this by packing your meal packets into a storage zipper bag and double bag that.
You should know that you can make almost anything when you’re camping, with a little advanced planning and work before you leave, so no more weenie roasts on a stick to keep from starving on your next camping trip, you’re going to eat like a gourmet.

Picnic Plans Anyone?

When preparing a picnic meal keep it simple and play with the flavours and aromas.
Picnics are the best occasion to encourage your kids to inculcate good and healthy eating habits.
Thus, no one wants to follow sophisticated table manners.
Keep hassle free finger foods like or you can also keep a barbeque and serve grilled food, which are delicious, filling and easy to eat.
Plus, the appetizers will keep them from getting hungry till the time you decide to start the lunch.

For appetizers arrange a platter of raw vegetables like cucumber sticks, carrot sticks, asparagus, etc and serve it with one or two nice dips.
You can probably keep one salsa dip and other a celery-sour cream dip.
Instead of accompanying the platter with usually fried and unhealthy chips, try baked chips.

Sandwiches: Sandwiches are easy to make and does not take much time.
You can get hundred of different recipes from the internet.

Desserts and Fruits: A meal is incomplete without a dessert.
Cut different fruits and top them up on whipped cream and garnish it with golden honey.

Barbeque: If you are planning to set up a barbeque and serve your guests with freshly grilled scrumptious meats, then you can go in for frozen burger patties, kebabs, sausages, etc that are readily available in stores.
In herbs, flavoured olive oil, etc in advance.
Serve the barbeque dishes with readymade barbeque sauce or the freshly prepared two dips mentioned in the appetizer section.
Stock up lots of bottled water because children tend to be quiet active on picnics, and can get dehydrated.
Easy to cook, easy to eat, delicious and nutritious food items can make picnic all the more enjoyable.
