Real Food Camping: Quick & Easy Menu

The Trail

Real Food Camping

As the first long weekend of the year rolls around, we are packing up to go camping. I love quick & easy recipes that I can prepare in advance for quick meals outside. Although campfire cooking is a favourite, dinner seems to take a while to cook which involves having quick snacks or appetizers to take the edge off. Here’s a quick & easy real food menu for a weekend you can try.



Food On The Road: Snack Boxes filled with cheese & crackers, veggies & dip, fruit for dessert. Extra snacks for the car.



Eggs, Breakfast Sausage or Bacon, Toast & Fruit


Lunch meat Sandwiches with cut vegetables and dip


Hot dogs with condiments, homemade potato salad, foil vegetable packets
S’mores or check out our campfire favourites!



Cereal with almond milk, fruit, instant coffee


Liverwurst rice cakes, fruit


  • Harvest Snaps
  • Fruit (apples, banana)
  • Vegetables (avocado, celery, carrots, baby tomatoes, snow peas)
  • Rice rusks
  • Iced Tea
  • Granola Bars
  • Homemade GORP

Are you headed out to any outdoor adventures this weekend?

    Liverwurst rice cakes, eh? I’ll be honest, I never would have thought of that one.

      It’s a favourite of mine. Mr J and I had some last night. Make sure you choose fine liverwurst.
