Hamburgers and hot dogs are ok, but that gets old fast.
Here are my favorite prep ahead healthy camping meals that you can fill your freezer with, and then just grab and pack up a cooler on those summer camping trips!
Camping season is officially in full swing… and so are all of the camping foods!!
The problem is, I struggle to stick to my healthy eating goals if I am not prepared.
The smell of melted cheese on giant burgers and loaded hot dogs gets me every.single.time.
I have to admit that so far, during this camping season, it feels as if I prep twice in the week (boo!).Once for the work week, and once for the weekend.
I had to find a way to try to not derail all of my healthy eating success each weekend ... and not spend 2 times a week meal prepping.
So, I started my search for freezer friendly meals that would be great to cook while camping.
Here are some of the things on my camping meal prep plans this summer, that you might want to
prep ahead before you head out on your camping trips:
My friend Kaidy over at Social Supper always seems to have foil packs on her rotating menu - so I finally gave them a try and I was honestly shocked at how good the meals come out when it is merely cooked over the fire in tin foil.
These are so simple to put together – wrap (usually) raw ingredients in foil.. and done.
I like to prep a few different recipes, freeze them, and just grab a few and load up the cooler.
I always put them in a zip bag or container before they go in the cooler. These are known to leak.
I have also been known to prep them in foil pans (see photo above) to prevent all the leaking issues.
I am all about LESS dishes when camping!
These are also great options even if you don't camp. They are great to throw on the backyard grill right after work - especially on those hot days you don't want to cook!
This summer, I am sampling my way through ALL of these bad boys:
You can also prep all of the ingredients in a container and then just put them on the skewer when you are at the campsite! Easy Peasy!
FOOD ON STICKS
There is nothing better than simply putting one of these recipes on the grill to reheat while you sip your coffee.
Double points, almost no dishes used with these ideas!
As I make my way through these recipes this summer, I am posting my reviews on my Instagram, so come follow along and see how these all turn out!
