By far the hardest part of camping is prep. What to pack and what to eat are typically the biggest decisions you will make during a weekend camping trip. Try these delish, easy, and healthy meals to take the guesswork out of your getaway weekend meal prep!
Start out your morning with this quick recipe from the Merchant Baker: Baked Banana Oatmeal Cups. Make these yummy cups before you depart and store in an air-tight container. Pack along some raw, organic honey to top off the oatmeal cups and awaken your senses.
Finished that exhausting first round of skiing and ready for a pick-me-up? Try this recipe for a refreshing take on campsite-lunch:
Shrimp Tacos and Mexican Corn Salad
For the tacos you will need: 1 lb raw, organic shrimp (store over ice in your cooler), 1 tsp coconut oil, corn tortillas, hot sauce.
To cook the shrimp, add coconut oil to tinfoil and place on your bbq grill. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes each side. Warm your tortillas on the grill and add the cooked shrimp to your tortillas. Finish with a spoonful of your Mexican corn salad and top with a dash of hot sauce.
Squeeze in a few more hours of swimming and sunshine and you’re now ready to get your feast on for this satisfying dinner:
Turkey Burgers with Cucumber & Dill Summer Salad
Pack your favorite brand organic turkey burgers and store over ice in your cooler. If using a bbq grill, cook the burgers on medium-high for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Upgrade your buns with sliced ciabbatta bread, add your favorite fixings and top with Worcestershire sauce.
Snacks and Dessert!
Make-ahead your own trail mix and pack a watermelon (don’t forget a slicing knife!) for in-between-meals and a light option to satisfy your sugar craving post-dinner. We like peanut butter M&Ms, raisins, lightly salted peanuts, unsalted almonds, whole cashews, and white chocolate chips for a tasty and energizing personalized trail mix.
Drinks – yes please!
Try the ever crowd-pleasing summer beer to keep the campsite rocking all weekend long. There are various takes on the sweet brew (aka “hop, skip and go naked”) but my fave version includes Shock Top‘s Lemon Shandy, vodka of choice, and Simply Lemonade with Raspberry. Serve over ice in your red solo cup and enjoy!
