Take a camping food list to make simple meals in the great outdoors
We like to keep it pretty basic when we go camping, but we love food and wouldn't be happy just eating baked beans.
It’s a really good idea to make up some meals before you go camping and take them with you in tupperware containers. That way you only have to heat them up and perhaps boil some pasta.
Some of our favourite pre-made meals are:-
Coffee (don't forget to make up some extra for your flask)
Jam or other spread for toast
Sandwich filling (meat slices, pate, tuna fish)
Cheese slices for sandwiches
Fruit (apples are good because they don't bruise too easily, bananas are good for energy)
Dried fruit (you need to drink plenty of water to be digest properly these though)
Trail bars (or better still - make some flapjack before you leave home and cut into slices)
Pre-made meals in tupperware containers
Tortillas (these only need a couple of minutes cooking either side and then you can add your vegetables or meat)
Salsa (for your tortillas)
Jars of sauce - curry, sweet & sour etc (for easy rice and noodle dishes)
Jar of crushed garlic
Jars of herbs and spices
Tins of soup
Eggs (omelettes are really easy camping meals)
Grated cheese or a block of cheese and grate it yourself
Bacon (breakfast sarnie or chopped up in pasta)
Big potatoes (for jacket potatoes on the campfire)
Butternut squash (can roast this on the campfire and don't even need to peel it)
Carrots (a raw carrot is good for snacking on too)
Wine (a cask of wine is easiest and cheapest - especially if you like red as you don't need to find fridge/cool box space)
