Healthy cooking can be done anywhere
While having a stove certainly makes cooking easier, you don’t have access to that when you’re camping. If you enjoy camping a lot, then some of the more delicious treats will take a toll on your waistline if you eat them too frequently. So, what’s the alternative? Plan healthy meals that you can enjoy when you’re on your camping trip.
A campfire twist on shrimp scampi
This delicious recipe is designed for the stove, which you can certainly do in your RV. But it can also be made over a campfire if your flames are in the medium-high range. This recipe is piled high with veggies, shrimp, and flavor. We recommend preparing many of the ingredients before you set out on your camping trip so all you have to do is toss them in and cook.
These pan-roasted veggies are full of color and flavors that you’ll love, and it pairs with any meat you want to have it with. You can also eat it on its own for a healthy snack. The combination of peppers and tomatoes give this dish a nice fresh flavor, while the sriracha adds a bit of heat. If you want even more fiber, add a few more mushrooms into the mix.
Burritos for breakfast or dinner
Who said breakfast burritos can only be enjoyed in the morning? These burritos pair eggs, bacon, multigrain flatbread, and olive oil for a healthy, protein-packed meal that will set your morning or evening on the right track.
The protein gives you a burst of energy while the flavors tantalize your tongue, and the multigrain keeps you full longer. Add just a sprinkle of cheese, and these could be your new favorite meal.
This is a spicy dish the whole family can enjoy. A mixture of spices, veggies, meat, and rice make this an amazing, savory meal to make memories with. Get the kids involved with dinner prep, and you can whip this dish up in no time. Be sure to bring your appetites, because this makes a lot of food, but it’s totally worth it. You may even have leftovers to put in the cooler to enjoy the following day.
Open your beer, put it in the cavity of the roasting chicken, set it up, and let it roast. The beer adds amazing flavor and moisture to the chicken that you’ll wonder why you ever cooked chicken any other way. Pair it with a veggie side, and you have a nutritious, low-calorie dinner that will leave you feeling guilt-free if you go back for seconds.
Here’s one for people who love delicious meals that don’t take a lot of time to make. This Hawaiian chicken has it all: protein, vegetables, and a touch of sweetness. If you want to add a little spice, add some red pepper flakes. All the ingredients are wrapped up in foil and cooked on the fire. The rice may be tricky to make at the campfire, but you can make it in your RV or before your trip and add it to the foil before cooking!
This recipe uses a lot of eggs, so be prepared for that. It’s rather simple to make and doesn’t include a lot of ingredients, but the ingredients it does use really pack a powerful punch of flavor. The combination of asparagus, goat cheese, and eggs will really set your morning off right or add the perfect end to an amazing day. And with it being so simple, you could be eating in no time!
