Healthy Camping

When out in the sticks, no need to leave your healthy eating in the city.  Of course, it’s not camping without a smore or banana boat, and you’ve got to live a little, but share your favorite camping yummies with us!

Last trip we tried kabobs and they were wonderful!  Before the trip I chopped up veggies into big chunks and put in gallon size ziploc bags.  And put chopped steak in another gallon ziploc with as Asian garlic hoison marinade/glaze.  All in ice chest.  First night everyone assembled their own skewers with whatever they wanted on it, then we put on grilling rack over the open fire.  Brushed on more marinade/glaze.  So good!  My skewer was mostly veggies.  We had eggplant (this was everyone’s surprising favorite!), green peppers, red peppers, onion, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, yellow squash, & zucchini.  We will definitely repeat. (completely not my photo, BTW 🙂 )

What healthy-er-ish camping foods do you like?

  1. Hey Sarah!! I just bought an eggplant for the first time to add it to our skewers. How to clean and cook an eggplant?? Thanks for any advice! So excited to try this weekend!!

  2. Abrey,
    I wash it, slice it in half the long way, then dice into 1″ cubes. Most prefer to peel, but I don’t. Simple & no mess. With the kabobs, I have to say the sauce makes the whole thing! I picked up an Asian garlic marinade glaze from a local healthy food shop. Marinaded meat chunks beforehand, then brushed on the veggies while cooking.
    I’m making on Monday night when I go camping with my sister’s fam for 3 days! Take a pic! Hope yours turn out well.
    Let me know if you have any other questions on it 🙂
