People often get tired of noise and crowds in the cities. This especially counts for those that live in urban areas of town. A huge number of cars and people on the streets is something they see every day. Indeed, living in an urban area has its benefits. However, when we talk about peace and silence, it is not something you will easily find.
We need to have our moment. At work, we are constantly under some sort of pressure. You are working too much to accomplish duties in the best possible way and respect deadlines. That’s why you want to use weekends in the best possible way to get rest, don’t you? We know that Saturdays and Sundays usually past faster than other days. However, one of the ways to make them more entertaining is to go camping.
Wherever you live, you will find campsites somewhere near your town. Weekend camping is good because you do not have to plan a lot of things in advance. For those two days, you will only need a basic piece of equipment. However, there is one thing that bothers people the most. They do not want to spend the entire weekend preparing meals. Okay, grilling is probably going to happen for one lunch during those two days. Yet, preparing all 6 meals for those two days would be quite annoying.
Here we want to analyze which healthy no-cook snacks you should bring when camping. Let’s find them out together.
We will start with the first and most important meal of the day. In the morning hours, you need to boost your energy for the entire day. For the first day of your camping, you will probably eat in the car or at home. People usually get up early on Saturday morning to use every moment of their weekend. However, the second day (or next days if you plan to stay longer), you need to be more creative.
Logically, each time when you get out of your tent in the morning, you would want to grab a cup of coffee. You are not going to prepare it there and that’s why bringing a thermos is the best option you have. If you do not possess one at home, you can check on this site some of them. There are three breakfast snacks that we would want to recommend.
Granola and Milk
The first condition for this meal is to have a cooler where you can put milk. We assume that granola or cereals and milk you already have at home. Still, this type of meal seems a bit monotonous, doesn’t it? That’s why it might be better to mix it with dried cranberries or bananas. Alternatively, The Kitchen Community has a No Bake Cookies Without Milk recipe that you might want to try for yourself.
Still, if you don’t have a cooler to bring, then there might be a solution. You can always purchase dehydrated milk.
Yogurt Fruit Parfait
Someone would say that we are obsessed with milk products. However, we believe they are a perfect match for camp breakfasts. Do you have a favorite yogurt? Well, mixing the yogurt with bananas or berries is an easy-to-prepare and delicious meal. It would be great if you find berries somewhere near your campsite. The fresh-picked ones are even yummier.
Lox Bagel Breakfast Sandwich
Well, this might seem like a gourmet. However, it is quite simple to prepare. Still, you will need to bring a bit more ingredients. You will need to have onions, cream cheese, capers, and other stuff. Despite the good taste, it will give your strength to enjoy the rest of the day.
Lunch Camping Meals
As we said, we assume grill is already planned for one of the lunches at your campsite. Still, you won’t prepare it every single day. Despite that, it is not too healthy. There are more healthy and practical things that you should prepare for lunches.
Tuna Salad Sandwich
Well, Tuna is easy to whip up at home. That’s why you should prepare this meal while you are still at home. However, you will once again need to have a cooler where you will place the tuna salad. Then, when you come to your campsite, you can easily put the salad on the bread.
However, once again you can find an alternative. If you do not have a cooler, you can always bring canned tuna and prepare the salad at the picnic table.
Hummus Veggie Wraps
Well, this type of lunch vegetarians will especially like. Yet, even if you are not vegetarian, you can be sure this is going to be one of the healthiest lunches you recently had. For this meal, you will need to pack several different ingredients. You will have to bring seasoned hummus, tortilla wraps, and which every veggie you prefer. You can choose between carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, and leafy greens.
Anyway, we would like to give you some tips here. Our recommendation is to bring some pre-mixed “everything” seasoning along. These things you can already find on the shelves of many stores. However, you can also prepare it at home. It is important to combine equal parts of every ingredient such as poppy seeds, dried minced garlic, white sesame seeds, etc. Your hummus veggie wraps will taste wonderful and make your camping even more amazing.
Dinner No-Cook Meals
Well, we know that cooking around the fire can be entertaining. However, it doesn’t need to be the main event of the night. Instead, 2 two no-cooking meals will save your time and improve your health. Let’s find them out together.
We assume you get confused when you read the name of this food. However, the flavorful Mediterranean food can be made without lighting the fire. There are a couple of ingredients that you need to bring from home. You need to bring a pita bread wrap and drizzle with sauce. That’s everything you need to enjoy.
Italian Pasta Salad
Well, cooking pasta is often a time-consuming activity. Yet, if you prepare pasta salad while you are still at home, you can ensure a tasty and healthy dinner. 1 box of bow-tie pasta is going to be enough. Put it in the cold water and let it cool to room temperature. After this process is finished, you should add onion, grated parmesan cheese, and fresh chopped bell peppers. Mix all these ingredients and add a pinch of salt and pepper. It seems delicious, doesn’t it?
