6 Quick, Easy and Healthy Camping Meals

6 Quick, Easy and Healthy Camping Meals |

Going on a camping trip and not quite sure what kind of food to bring? Since you won’t have all the kitchen gadgets you have at home, you’ll want to keep it simple. Simple doesn’t have to be boring though. We’ve gathered up a few of our new favorite healthy meals to cook while enjoying the outdoors. Take a look at our picks below before packing up your gear!

1. Campfire Breakfast Burritos

Burritos by the fire? Yes, please. Get the recipe here.

2. Breakfast Hash

Sure, a cast iron will add some weight to your pack, but this delicious breakfast hash is worth it.

3+ days off from Instagram and my phone and it was excellllllent. We had our best island trip yet! Minimal bugs, great weather (except this morning), and really good camp meals. Like this breakfast hash I made ? . . We backpack & primitive camp far more often than we car or canoe camp, so taking the cast iron and the Coleman grill feels almost like cheating, but it’s one of my favorite ways to cook . . Camp hash details (for 2): -1 russet potato, diced -2 links of @aidellssausage , sliced -1 bell pepper, chopped -5-6 sprigs of asparagus, chopped -1 tbsp chili powder, 1 tbsp cumin, sea salt to taste (I mix this together before we leave and bring in a little bottle) -4 eggs -1 @fourthandheart ghee-on-the-go packet -cheese & avocado to top Boil the potatoes in a pot until soft. While they are boiling, brown the sliced sausage and then remove. Squeeze some ghee into the cast iron and saute all the veggies. Carefully strain the potatoes (I just hold the potatoes back with my spatula and pour the water out). Add them in with the veggies and add a little more ghee if necessary. Scramble the eggs in the potato pot. Add them in with the veggies. Top with cheese & avocado!
