Camping food at it's best

So we love camping!  I jokingly say my hubby lucked out that his wife enjoys roughing it and everything that goes with it.  We have food allergies so prepping for any trip requires some amount of thinking ahead.  For this 4 day trip we have some premade things but mostly homemade stuff.  So today is food prep day.  Yesterday, I cleaned the house for the dog sitters, packed our clothing, and played with the boys.

Here's our list:

Scrambled Eggs with veggies and cheese
Banana Muffins (see Elana's Pantry recipe for Paleo Banana Muffins...I use honey)
Applegate Farms Chicken and Maple Breakfast Sausage
Milk (organic whole milk and Almond Milk)
veggie smoothies

Spicy Black bean salad
Tortilla chips
raw veggies
veggie dip (see recipe below)
Uncured Beef Hot Dogs (Applegate Farms)

raw veggies
taco meat
Homemade salsa
Black bean salad
organic corn chips (for the Superheroes)
Tillamook Cheddar Cheese
Hot dogs from above

70% Cacao Organic Dark Chocolate
Organic Apples
Organic Oranges
Organic grapes
Sunflower Seed Butter Blondies (Elana's Pantry...I use 1/2 maple syrup and 1/2 honey for this recipe instead of the agave nectar)

Now...for the recipes!!!

Veggie Dip
8 ounces organic full fat sour cream
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 TBSP dried dill
1 TBSP dried parsley

Mix above ingredients and enjoy!

Hamburgers with Feta (Thanks to our friend Jana for this recipe...with some minor additions)
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup crumbled feta
3/4 cup finely chopped spinach
1 TBSP fresh minced basil
1 TBSP fresh minced garlic
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/3 cup finely minced red bell pepper
1 tsp. sea salt

Mix above ingredients and fry on griddle.  Sooo good!  Enjoy!


  1. Hello,
    Great lineup! Of course I appreciate the sunflower seed butter blondies inclusion since I blog for the SunButter brand, but as a fellow camping family, I can't wait to add your creations to our next camping trip. I especially love the blend of pre-made and "make there" items. (It's tough to prepare food from the beach, right?) Thanks for the great ideas from one happy camper to another.

    1. Hello again Elizabeth,

      So you're back. We loved the blondies and they are definitely a staple in our house. I have to limit how often I make them since they're so addictive. We had a great trip and are ready for our next adventure already.
