Camping meals guide
Camping meal planning can be a true adventure. If you take some time to look for the best camping recipes and make a list before you leave, it will go a long way toward making your trip enjoyable.
Camping is a fun way to spend time with family and friends. In addition, it provides a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature while learning how to prepare simple meals.
“However, it can be very difficult to eat well while camping. It’s easy for food to go wasted and dishes to be left in the car or at the campsite.”
Your basic cooking gear can be as simple as your food storage, or you can invest in some of the more sophisticated cooking equipment available today. If you need help organizing your camping meals, then keep reading!
Most of the organized campsites in Greece provide the option of a shared kitchen or at least a few refrigerators for the campers. Taking advantage of this for your own use, you may enjoy freshly prepared snacks and meals throughout the whole stay of your holiday! If you have the right equipment, you can even make some delicious meals.
You will need a stove to heat up your food (in case it’s not provided in the shared kitchen) and a medium-sized pot or a large pan that is big enough to hold all of your ingredients. Also, you may ask prior to your visit if there is a shared grill to use or not.
Include a kettle or an espresso coffee pot if you enjoy coffee and prefer to make it yourself. Next, you will need a knife or two and reusable kitchenware such as plates and glasses for everyone. Let’s not forget to avoid single-use plastic products to make our holidays more eco-friendly and sustainable.
Consider not incorporating a lot of carbonates in your breakfast and snack meal planning because they may provide transient energy. Instead, concentrate on getting enough protein and fiber. Boiled eggs, yogurt with fresh fruits and granola or cereal, avocado toast with tomato and basil, peanut butter toast with banana, or a simple fruit salad are just a few ideas.
Essential ingredients for every camping meal
When thinking about the basic cooking ingredients, don’t forget to include olive oil for salads and spices like salt, pepper, and oregano. If you don’t want to eat hot dogs for the rest of your camping trip, here are some viable combinations to make a full meal for you and your family or friends.
Start with the main idea, such as ground beef or pork, meatballs, chicken, or tuna (tinned) pasta, and then add rice, a simple veggie sauce, grilled or boiled veggies, or a fresh salad. For those chilly nights outside your tent, you can even make a simple soup! Try a pasta salad or some simple vegan recipes if you prefer a light meal.
When traveling or camping with children, it’s also important to consider their small desire for unhealthy snacks, so pack a few crisps, cookies, and drinks for the journey and your stay at the campsite.
All of these camping meal supplies may be easily found at a nearby grocery store, allowing you to avoid lugging them all the way to your destination and freeing up space for more important items.
Considering Greece has so many lovely places, each with its own unique products and cuisines, what better way to get to know a place than by cooking its regional specialties and connecting with others?
So now you are ready to book your next camping trip here and try new, healthy habits.
Let’s give it a shot this summer!
