You Can Still Eat Healthy Around the Campfire


With so many outside activities to enjoy in the sunshine, it can be hard to let summer go.


There's still plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors before the cold really settles in, and one of my absolute favorites growing up and RV-ing in my adult years was to enjoy the cool weather and camping.

As you get ready to pack up for a big camping trip, you might be wondering how you can make delicious and healthy meals while in the great outdoors. Camping can indeed present some challenges for preparing tasty meals, but here are some great ideas to make every camper in your family a happy one!

Foil packets over the fire

One delicious way to make a healthy meal while camping is to pre-pack foil packets of food that you can lay flat in your cooler. Just use your favorite healthy food items, then add your favorite seasonings and olive oil. Seal them up tight and then throw them over the fire when you're ready. Be very careful when opening them because of the escaping steam, it can present a burn hazard.

Pineapple chicken skewers:

The prep is too easy on this one! Merely skewer chicken and pineapple together and stash them in zipper bags of teriyaki marinade. Take along lettuce for wrapping along with any other fun bits like crushed nuts to add a fun texture.

Chickpea salad:

Mix tahini with a can of chickpeas and you have a healthy on-the-go salad that everyone will goggle up. Chickpeas are packed with protein and antioxidants too so they'll help fuel your outdoor adventures!

Chili:

Chili is a hearty meal that's easy to make in your slow cooker first and tote along for easy heat-up anytime hunger strikes. Use ground turkey to lighten it up a bit or even make a meatless version of it. Chili is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for any camping trip and can wary up any chilly night.

Fajita fun:

Who says you need to go to your favorite Tex-Mex restaurant to get sizzling fajitas? Just marinate your chicken in a zipper bag with red and green peppers and onions and pack it away. Don't forget the tortillas, salsa, and guacamole so everyone can customize it their way. If you want to make it even healthier, you can use lettuce for wrapping instead.

Conclusion:

With these tasty recipes in your arsenal, you'll be able to make that camping adventure delicious, healthy and fun.

Recipe Banana s' mores:


Serves (1)

One tradition many campers have is to make s'mores, but it isn't exactly health. Instead, use banana as your vessel for creating this iconic camping dessert. Just split it lengthwise and fill it with a few dark chocolate chips and marshmallows. Then wrap it in foil and put it over the fire for about 7 minutes. This is a cleaner way It will get nice and gooey. You can include graham crackers to scoop out the deliciousness or just hand out spoons.

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: Or just place the banana over the fire, like the picture shown.
